Apologies for such a long time in between posts.....
On 31st January I was struck down with 'Acute Viral Bronchitis' and things got much worse before they started to get better I can tell you!
As you can see from my daily journal entries.
As the bronchitis was viral no antibiotics would touch it and a case of waiting for it to pass...oh, so much easier said than done. It has taken most of February for it to 'pass'
Have never known a cough so very, very painful, the bronchitis sent my asthma totally haywire which in the end turned out to be the biggest concern and has only just stabilised within the last couple of days.
....oh...and did I mention the pulled rib muscles a bout of coughing left me with?.....painful indeed, and still are as the inflammation takes a while to heal...
Apart from that, all is well as we enter this season of Lent once again.
We had a very chilly few days...the lowest my weather station recorded was on 2nd February, when the outside thermometer registered -9.8'C at 8.05am...just as my husband was going out to get the bus to work.. It was only 17.2' indoors too I see...the heating doesn't come on till 7am
Later on in the month we had 'Storm Doris' which brought us gale force winds and some horrible hail storms. Was rather glad to be staying in doors!
My son in law rescued these Daffodils that the storm had flattened when he came round with my annual spring supply of compost...3 for £10 from all good garden centres at this time of year..
I took the photograph before he had brought the third bag in. Which he had to carry from the boot of his car, up the garden path, through the front door, through the hall, through the kitchen and out of the back door.
Now all I need is for the weather to warm up a little and I get get my vegetable seeds sown in the large pots that are all cleaned and ready and waiting...it won't be long now.
