I have been feeling rather poorly this week as hubby seems to have shared his cough with me. His lasted about three weeks and is almost gone but he didn't feel unwell. Unfortunately I am so haven't been blogging much. We had a lovely night away on Wednesday in Ipswich with friends. Went to a 60's show which was brilliant. Thankfully nobody could hear me coughing with the loud music but how frustrated I was not being able to sing along. We stayed overnight and came home yesterday. So glad I felt well enough to go but have gone downhill since. Dreadful night last night, phoning Dr this morning. Good job I schedule my posts ahead or my blog would have been empty this week.

Lovely cheerful card Marianne.
So sorry to hear you are not feeling great. Coughs are so annoying because they are so uncontrollable. I hope you are soon feeling much better.
