Friday, 13th January 2017

Didn't think about it until i wrote Friday 13th, which gets to some people [for reasons i will never understand].  It's just a date on a calendar, like the Ides of March, but i know some will not fly or even travel if they can avoid it. i've never been a very superstitious person, but even i 'touch wood' if i think i'm throwing out a challenge to the gods!
We've been lucky down here with the weather so far, no real snow or sleet.  We've had the odd flurry but never lasting more than a few minutes, though we've had some very cold winds and sharp frosts. With this bad 'flu, i've had no inclination to go out, except to pick up medicine, post a parcel or get necessary milk/bread etc.  It's blustery today and i feel for those in storm-warning areas on the coast. Spring tides don't help when you are expecting bad weather.
i still tire very quickly and have to fight to stay awake some days, so it's difficult to keep to 'regular' hours as i'm drifting off after any carbs.  i do suit myself most days when i get up or go to bed but reading until 5am does tend to throw you out.  It's times like this, i'm glad/sorry i don't have cats.  They do offer a lot of comfort and come and sleep with you when you're not well but i don't think they'd like the bouts of prolonged coughing.
Well, i have some paperwork to catch up on [and housework!], so must press on. Stay warm and look after yourselves.

Beautiful flowers in that last photo!

You sound like you have the flu Eldest Cee had over Christmas. It took him two weeks to get over it and he still has the cough :(

I like the Peonies but they're a tad large. I would love to have the bamboo birds on my wall. :) I'm sorry to hear you're not tiptop, I've had three days of falling asleep. Absolutely hateful. My 82 year old mother is more alert than me! :(
