Last week was a strange week. The week before last I realised I had a load of holiday backed up, and very little time in which to take it! So I booked Monday to Thursday off last week. Usually I have weeks to work myself up to a holiday, but this came upon me rather suddenly.

On Monday, I was ill! This was most disagreeable. This is the first time I’ve had anything worse than a cold since early 2003 (when I had pneumonia), so it came as a bit of a surprise. I’d forgotten how rubbish it feels to be unwell. Even the pneumonia was no big deal – no pain, no discomfort, just a bit breathless. A couple of days in hospital and that was that.

This time I actually threw up! The first time in over eleven years. Yuck 😦 . I can’t even remember when I was ill before that – either all the vodka masked the symptoms or it sent all the bugs and viruses running for the hills.

Run, little diseases, run!

Happiness – a nonet

June 8, 2013 13 comments

Here it is, as promised – a happy poem! And a nonet, no less.

Happiness – this was a real stretch for me. Reaching outside of my limits. Absolutely nothing in this poem dies horribly, gets cut down or meets an untimely end – guaranteed!

And I couldn’t even find a picture of sparrows (with a redistribution licence).

Not a sparrow

This is not a sparrow.
