A little better - thank you.

Wow have I been ill? I actually had to take to my bed (unheard of!!). Whatever this bug is - it's a nasty one. Coughing until I choke, stomach cramps, sickness - both ends, aches and a killer headache. And although I am a lot better today (still have stomach cramps & cough) I feel so weak - it is ridiculous.

I haven't wanted to do anything - no knitting, spinning, reading etc. I've either slept or just sat. M & J have been wonderful.

So I've nothing to tell and nothing to show. So you can have this instead........

Something told the wild geese
It was time to go,
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered, 'Snow!'
Leaves were green and stirring,
Berries lustre-glossed,
But beneath warm feathers
Something cautioned, 'Frost!'

All the sagging orchards
Steamed with amber spice,
But each wild beast stiffened
At remembered ice.
Something told the wild geese
It was time to fly -
Summer sun was on their wings,
Winter in their cry.
