S brought an unwelcome visitor with him on the long weekend - a nasty head cold. I fought it as hard as I could but I've succumbed and am spending the day at home on the couch (though still wearing a dress, I'm nothing if not committed to Frocktober).
When S was home sick late last week he slept and played video games. I am not good at being home sick. I've already responded to some work email, done a load of washing, given the kitchen a wipe over and watered the pot plants. I have also stood in our courtyard, mug of tea in hand soaking up a little of the gorgeous spring sunshine and in doing so I noticed that the first of my freesias have started flowering. Their delicious spicy scent managed to make its way though my blocked nose and they are now sitting on the coffee table bringing me joy.
The rest of the day will be spent getting stuck into Game of Thrones (I'm reading the book after seeing the series) and drinking plenty of fluids all while being watched over by my gorgeous flowers. It is amazing how such a small thing as two stems of deliciously scented flowers can make me feel so much better.
