I will spare you dear readers the detail but suffice to say I have lost 10lbs in weight and it was not pleasant. A sample is with the path lab to determine if my illness was viral or parasitic. I believe people were complaining about the heat on Saturday but the heat warmed my bones and helped to clear the lingering elements of the illness.
In the midst of all this I awoke from my stupor to the unbelievable spectacle of Assange preaching from a low balcony to a media throng in Knightsbridge. Having escaped the jaws of whatever and being of sound mind and body again, I thought a new fever was upon me such was the ridiculous speech and demeanour of the man or as we like to think of him in this household the rat 'wikileaks' from South Park. If only Lemmiwinks could come along and deal with him. My boiling blood did manage to get me going and I nearly leapt out of bed today as finally, although weakened, I felt normal again. And please I have a whole post brewing on Dame Viv and her involvement!!
Mind you the amount of water I need to drink each day to replenish my body is ridiculous. I actually scared a shopper in the supermarket car park today as I swigged from a bottle of water, standing outside the car and then gaily got in and drove off. I realised when I got home it must have looked like I casually sunk some vodka and then drove off. I only buy (very occasionally) glass bottles of water not plastic ones and from a distance I can see that maybe it was quite vodka bottle like.
As well as a few groceries, I bought a heap of magazines as we are off on holiday to Pembrokeshire next week and the weather in Wales is mainly on the wet side. It is an eclectic mix and I am only missing a copy of Elle to add to the pile, which handily has a free eye pencil too.
I also had to pick up something from Mr MDS in M&S and after a week in bed felt the need for some new items not associated with fever and ruination. I opted for that Carrie Bradshaw look from SATC the HBO series of vest top and boy shorts to be worn with black bra and pearls of course.

I was actually grateful to Sky Moives one afternoon last week as I hauled myself onto the sofa, had tons of cushions and a blanket to snuggle under and watched SATC2. It was the easiest viewing ever and my only moment of elation was when Wendy Brandes earrings made their appearance.
Shortly I will be rebooted sufficiently to get to grips with the forth coming season and pick out some winners for your budgets.
