Mumps part 3

I feel truly dreadful today. I hope that means it can only start to get better?!

However, I have been spoilt by flowers from my Mum which arrived in the post today which are sitting alongside the flowers that Mr W brought home last night. We only have one vase, but doesn't Mr W's beer glass (part of a set I bought for his birthday last week) make a good vase?

I also had a book care package from the lovely Paperback Reader Claire. She lent me a rare and precious copy of one of her favourites, plus the new Julian Barnes that I wanted to read. I hope the postman hasn't caught mumps as I had to sign for it....

Plus I have been spoilt by lots of comments on my blog posts wishing me better (and it's lovely to see some lurkers popping up too), and kind people on twitter keeping me company and trying to cheer me up.

In the meantime, I'm doing cross stitch, although beyond cross with myself for missing one of the colours that I needed Mr W to get for me. This means I can't finish it as it is the colour needed for the rest of the face and the feet. Oh well, I can get it when I'm back at work next week and it will be easy to finish off if I have got to that stage.


  1. Cross Stitch looks really great, it is annoying when you do not have the last thread you need as well!

    Hope you start to feel better soon. Is Mr W going to bake you a cake?

  2. Aw, how lovely of Claire! The Blue Castle is a perfect comfort book. I hope you do start feeling better soon!

  3. Hope you are feeling better...mumps are no fun. Hopefully bears are immune... Susan E

  4. I'm so sorry you've been under the weather!! I hope you're better soon. The flowers are lovely!

    I haven't read The Blue Castle but I have an unread copy on my TBR shelf. I admit I haven't read it yet partly because the cover of mine is so cheesy! It's not as nice as yours -- is that the rare and precious book lent to you by Claire?

  5. I'm a lurker popping up to wish you better very soon. xx Michelle in Australia.
