The View From My Couch: Tiny Umbrellas.


Well it's been a rather rough couple of weeks on the health front (hence the lack of posting).  Sad that I'm becoming rather sentimental about the 'good old days' of normal Bob symptoms.  But what's a girl to do?  Break out the tiny umbrellas of happiness, that's what.  If I'm going to walk like I just sculled a jug of margaritas, I might as well at least have the mini umbrellas.  And they are so pretty.  So here's to glasses of water, rimmed with salt and a cheery little umbrella on the side.  Though, a little medicinal tequila wouldn't go astray.

  2. Diana - thanks babe. I'm not liking it much myself. I'm hoping it's just a phase and I'll go back to normal crappy soon.

  3. So sorry Michelle, I am basking in the wonderfulness of "normal" Bob symptoms, knowing that any day Bob could release the floodgates of all his nasty comrads! I hope this is just a phase Bob is going through (like terrible two's or teens) and things will go back to "normal".

  4. Michele - Thanks Michele. Here's hoping it is a case of the terrible two's, though I do wish he would grow up. Is it possible to put Bob in the naughty corner?

  5. I am so sorry my friend so far away that you are feeling so awful. I know it makes no difference but my lack of posts indicate also that quite frankly my dear, I am lost in duvet land, too sick a malady I can't even explain to my doctor. But thats me and this is about you. Just because you aren't posting I want you to know you are in my thoughts. I still have thoughts even though my body appears to have lost the plot. So dear bob, please leave my lovely friend alone now and let her at least sit up and laugh long while sipping make believe cocktails. I have taken to going on virtual holidays from my bed, thank god for the internet, as I have just returned from a marvelous mini break in Greece. It seems illness cannot take away our imaginations eh.

    A gentle virtual hug from me to you and direct orders that you feel better soon.

  7. Achelois - Thanks for your lovely comment. I thought you might be in the same boat at the moment. Sucks when our bodies seem intent on betraying us at every turn. You're in my thoughts to and I keep checking in on your blog just in case you feel well enough to post again. I'm off to see the uberneuro in June finally, he's my last port of call here in Oz, if he can't help I'm pretty much at a stand still. I've been following a blog with beautiful pictures primarily from France but also other areas. I think you'd like it too http://dakotad.com/ It's my vicarious travel experience. The author Dakota is a lovely guy.

  8. MLS - thanks for that. I'm crossing my fingers its a phase and not an indication of progression. I hope your recent forays into the medical world are paying off with some answers. Congratulations on the piece in 'Hippocampus'. 'Vaseline' cracked me up the first time round and had me laughing again reading it today.

  9. hi michelle

    hoping you feel better soon. i wanted to chop my head off today, just to get rid of this lingering headache, although i thought better off it. i know parts of what your going through, i still mutter to myself as i have done over the years, 'what is wrong with me', then laugh because i now know. i mutter alot when things get bad. hope this passes soon for you. xxxx

  10. Em - muttering does work well. :) Hope your headache buggers off. Not sure that beheading yourself is listed as the gold standard treatment for headache, though it may have some unwanted sideeffects :P

All who are lovely enough to comment should be showered with cup cakes, glitter and macarons. I promise to use my spoon bending mind powers to try and get that happening for all who are lovely enough to share their words. Those who go the extra step to share posts should really get a free unicorn. Or at least the gift of finding the shortest and quickest line at the supermarket on a regular basis. xx
