31 Day Blog Challenge - Day 26 & 27

26. An old photo of you:

In bed with English or real measles, hence the sunglasses and drawn curtains - age? about 12/13? And super BORED. i had German measles in my late 20's, really quite late, and my doctor thanked me for not going into the surgery, when he came visiting; lots of pregnant women used that surgery.

27. Post your favourite recipe:

Funny, i read recipe books like magazines but have few actual favourites. They inspire me to try them sometimes and i usually wind up making my own version of it, depending on the ingredients. With so many using bloody red/green peppers nowadays, i'm often looking to substitute them. It's usually tomatoes [if it's the red colour needed]. If colour doesn't matter, than it follows that what i use doesn't either. You can get enough acidity with onions, if that is what is wanted or a good cider or wine vinegar.

Got bored with doing one day at a time... :D
i know it's photoshopped, leastways i think it is - but it did make me laugh!

It's awful being really poorly isn't it! I remember several instances of high fevers and drinking endless glasses of water when I was in my teens. Chicken pox was the worst!

Yes, i think you're right about chicken pox. i had it quite young, while we were on leave in UK and i got to sleep in my grandparents' bed [very comfortable!]. i was plagued with horribly itchy spots that almost drove me mad as i wasn't supposed to scratch, of course, or it would mark my face. Amazingly, i have only one mark on my cheek. Problem was, i had them all through my hair too. i can still remember how exhausting it was and i was reduced to patting my hair quite hard in despair. i must have loads of poxmarks under it! i remember too my parents worrying that i wouldn't be 'safe' to travel before our leave ran out... But it must have worked out as i'm sure we left on time.
