"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Mysterious illness

Yesterday was the monthly get-together with Gill and Julie for our 'Ladies who lunch' group. We tried a different place this time and very nice it was. I got home at just after 3.30 and by five o'clock, I had started to feel cold. Half an hour later, I had turned the heating on, was wearing extra layers and clutching a hot water bottle but still shivering uncontrollably. My head ached and I had pains throughout my bones.
Elder Daughter has, in the past, used the word 'hypochondriac' in connection with me. Very unfair, I know, but I can't deny that thoughts of brain tumours, meningitis and other unidentified terminal illnesses did cross my mind as I took myself off to bed.
This morning, I am up and Paddy is waiting patiently for his walk.
I'm not rushing though...
Da dawg will just have to be patient for a little while longer.
