I and my dogs took a walk in the forest when the chimney sweeper did his job. I thought it was better to do that then perhaps give him what I´ve got now.

Not a good start this morning. I woke up and was completely stuffed in the nose and more tired than I´ve been for a long time. I hade woken up several times this night, but I don´t know why. But I went to work as usual thining it would be better when I started. Well my nose got better but then the nausea started instead. If it´s something they don´t want at work it´s nausea, so I think they were quite happy when I decided to go home.

Just when I started to drive homewards my mobile phone rang. It was the chimney sweeper that called and wondered why the door wasen´t open like it use to when he is arriving. The only thing I thought of to say was “Is it the tenth today?” Well I was lucky, he should sweep another house in my village today, so he went there first and came to my cottage just before I did. I think it´s great that they nowdays phone to hear if something is wrong or wonder why the door is locked.

I´m never nervouse if I should forget to lock my door when going away for the day. The road to my home looks like it goes in to the farm just ahead of my cottage, so no one understands that that´s the way to my home. If someone unknown should try to get in to my cottage while I´m not at home, they soon would be joined by several of my neighbours :-) We do have open eyes for anything unusual here. If I know that someone is comming to my house when I´m not at home I have to tell my neighbours so they don´t call the police or do anything else :-) It´s impossible not to feel safe here :-)

The little Bluetit is a tough little bird. It can shase away much bigger birds if it wants to. It looks alot like Talgoxen, but has a blue spot on the head.

Well, the nausea is gone for the moment, but my stomac is rumbling a bit, so it will be a lot of tea today I think and of course a lot of fire logs in my stove now when the chimney sweeper has been here.
Be good!

Talgoxens head is completely black. Talgoxen is also a bit bigger than the Bluetit.

... Oh, I am sorry that you're not feeling up to par! I'll say a prayer that you'll be feeling better soon.

Yes, tea, juices, aspirin, bed rest and later, when your stomach is more agreeable, soup, scrambled eggs, fruit, toast ...

Take care, my friend ...

Hi Mona!
No I don´t think I got the flu. It´s probably the pills for my psoriasis arthritis that causes my stomac problems. I stopped taking them when I felt nausea and then the nausea stopped. They are a bit strong for the stomac so even if I need them sometimes I have to stop taking them for a while. But on the other hand,there is a lot of stomac flues going around at the moment here.

That´s the problem for us that loves plants, we always buy to much :-) :-) :-) I´ve already ordered some fuchsia and geranium cuttings even if they can´t be outside for over a month yet :-)
