Shhhh, it's oh so quiet....

I woke up yesterday with a bit of a sore throat, but I went off to work as usual.
As my shift wore on, things got worse and I went from sounding like Scooby Doo, to almost no voice at all, and very painful ears too! Once I got home I was just about able to make myself understood when I called for a Doctors appointment and scored the last one of the day.
Apparently I have huge tonsils, which are very red and inflamed.
I'm on antibiotics and have to rest my throat for a few days, so no talking for me! 
Which means no work either.
So I get a long weekend off work.
Maybe I'll sit and sew.
Some of the grey brown / elephant threads that were promised to me have arrived and one of them is a perfect match. I could get on and stitch elephants, but I've really been enjoying my own project, Spring Queen, and as you see below I've made good progress over this week.
And here is what she looks like now.
I'll make a decision about what to stitch soon, first I want to show off something new.
Tony and I made home made pasta the other day. It was our very first go and we agreed that if we are going to make a habit of this, then we want a pasta rolling machine!
But for a first effort we were pretty happy with our ravioli.
It is filled with a sweet potato filling and was served with a dressing of walnuts and sage.
Here it is before it went into the pan.
Sorry, no after shot this time, we ate it!! LOL
Right, I'm off to decide what to do with my quiet day.

I've also come down with a sore throat, lots of coughing going on and head aches. So I'm making hot drinks of Barkers lemon, honey and ginger, and taking Panadols for my sore head. Hope we both feel better soon!

Hope that throat gets better, although a long weekend isn't a bad trade off.
How wonderful that you have managed to get a matching thread.
And your pasta definitely looks delicious.

Look after that throat of yours. No yelling at Tony for a while. At least you aren’t feeling too sick to stitch. Here’s hoping you are at full voice again nice and soon.
