This past week I have had a cold which left me lying in a heap making noises that my husband describe as those of “a small motor boat” (that was when I could make any noise at all). The rest of the time I worked my way through an order for olives and bar fruit, played around with bas-relief vegetation and sketched while listening to the radio. So all in all it was not an unproductive time and really makes me value my good health which is so rarely compromised.
Sometimes being given a little time out is not a bad thing. Now if I can avoid it again for the next year of so I will be happy.
