Thanks for your encouraging comments on my previous post! I wish that I could report that I am better but am still feeling mighty rough! Five weeks of sheer hell! I have a chronic sore throat and cough! I can't sleep lying down because as soon as my head hits the pillow I start coughing! I have therefore been trying to sleep whilst sat upright - which is no joke! I think that I've probably got the flu as I've been feeling hot and sweaty one minute and then chilly the next! I am exhausted by it all to tell you the truth! I haven't been back to the doctor as my doctor is pretty crap if I'm honest!
The OH has been absolutely marvellous looking after me and doing all the shopping and taking Miss. K. to and from school. I don't know what I would have done without him!
He bought me the beautiful tulips above to cheer me up!
It's that time of year again when Miss. K. has her English Studies Board exam - she has to recite a poem, give a presentation and a demonstration and answer questions about them as well as reading from a book of her choice!
Her presentation is going to be about "Matilda" - The Musical - and she is going to sing parts of two songs for her demonstration! She does a pretty mean impersonation of Miss. Trunchbull!
The exam is on Wednesday - so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well for her!
A closer look at the tulips!
I am a bit of a collector of childrens' books and I thought that I would show you some of the beautiful covers that these books have!
Most of the books I have purchased from a local second hand book shop - some for as little as 20p!
Aren't the covers just stunning! So evocative of their time!
Some have been presented to children for good school attendance or as a prize!
Some of the books also have colour plates in them!
The covers just make you want to grab the books and read the adventure stories within!
Wonderful drawings of children at play!
One of the colour plates!
Another look at those tulips!
One last look!
Righty-ho - I'm off to make myself a lemsip with some honey!
Be back soon!
