First, because you can't have a post without a picture...... My valentines lilies.
The roses have seen better days and this morning as I gave them a good tidy up I had to throw out two of the lily stems. That meant I could finally get everything into one vase though, up to now they have been spread over two! Hopefully some TLC, fresh water and flower food will help them to last a few days more.
What is bizarre? Well I didn't really get viral, although the doc was sure I would. The fevers only lasted a couple of days and never really took hold. Not a one today. Someone suggested that maybe it's that time? Not unheard of at forty, but does it come with lightening headaches? They just arrived at the weekend along with the temperatures, they only last a few minutes, then they wear off. It's like someone switches them on and I'm in pain, but before I can take anything to ease them, they wear away to a dull ache which I can forget about if I do something...... Any ideas? Aside from the headaches I do feel better, but as the doc has signed me off work all week, I'll take it! Being so busy last week and all the worry with Jonny, maybe it's just stress and I need the rest. Something the Doc did wonder out loud. She told me to rest, so that's what I'll do.
I did do a bit of sewing yesterday afternoon and got the second quarter of Joe's quilt quilted, then made inroads on a third. Today I have completed the quilting and put the quarters together. (See I told you I feel better, though I took two headache breaks.) I've also attached the binding and now I'm about to curl up on my armchair and close that up. Photo of the completed quilt tomorrow.
Thanks for the get well wishes, Jonny and I are sharing them, but I think he still needs them more that I do.

Take care.

Glad you feel better.

Stress is a strange thing and shows itself in many different ways. Take it easy and make time to relax
