I haven’t been a well woman so far this year! After a traumatic family incident at Christmas which took me back to the UK on an emergency ferry dash, I was very tired and on 2 January, returned to Brittany with a chest infection which I haven’t been able to shift. I’ve had two different types of antibiotics, steroids, nebulizer treatment and finally ended up still with the infection, but also with candida from the antibiotics. Six weeks on, I still have the chest infection and no-one, not even the lung specialist, knows what to give me because of the candida. I am very tired and can’t do anything without feeling exhausted. I do hope this resolves itself soon, as I’m absolutely fed up with feeling below par, having no energy and not being able to play bowls. Also I need to be really well for my mini gastric by pass operation in March/April – provided they approve me at their meeting at the beginning of March. Right, moan over.
Primroses are flowering in the garden, joining blue periwinkle and pink bergenia blossom. I can’t believe how the honeysuckle is leafing up and there's already a 30cm cube of delphinium shoots and leaves.
A lovely nuthatch. I was delighted as normally I can only see them on the oak tree trunk too far from the house to see them well.
Although it's in black and white it's really not that long ago!
