Hahaha! I "chat up" my garden too... I'm sure the neighbors think I'm a looney tune....
How long is your peony season there?

I am glad that I am not the only one who talks to my plants. When my neighbor's ask "Who are you talking to?", I tell them my dog. They are OK with that and I let it go from there.

Morning everyone. It was a rough weekend, starting around Thursday, when I got sick and ended up mostly bed ridden until Saturday (I was up and about for only a couple of hours on Friday). But I quickly improved and got to enjoy some of the nice weather. Unfortunately, by last night both kids started to get sick as well, so it's going to be a long couple of days with them up all night.

Afternoon, Sean. Sorry to hear of this illness going through you and then your family. That can be really tough, especially when the children are young. Bon chance, mon ami. Shall I send you some homemade chicken soup?

Afternoon.

Sean, sorry to hear about you and the kids being sick, that's terrible. Lots of fluids!! Flush it out. I think fresh air is also helpful in recovery.

Baileys for breakfast? Certainement!!! I was hoping no one noticed that I filched the last of it earlier.......I was going to replace it - but I got distracted by half price plants and spent the money on them instead..........sorry!

Well, I think I shall go sand down and repaint the verandah railing, the paint job I did last year didn't last and I don't feel like doing anything inside with such nice weather outside.

About 5:30 this morning, darn kittens thought that jumping on my head was a grand idea.

One of the things I like least about travel - I always seem to get sick about a week after a flight. 7-10 day Incubation period, I guess. (if I go for a week long trip, I'll be fine on the road, and then get sick the day after I get home).

Even staying in hotels ... just breeding areas for germs - especially the remote controls for the TVs and handsets on the hotel phones. (Call me paranoid, but I wipe everything down when I arrive, and that seems to help - I seldom get sick after a road trip where I'm driving and staying in hotels - but throw in an airplane ride ... pretty much guaranteed.)

Hope the kids recover quickly.

Yeah, I was wondering if it wasn't some latent carry-over from the trip, but several other people around work have been sick too, so I'm guessing I just caught something there.

The worst part is the kids ending up sick. They get extra whiny, and argumentative when they're sick. At least I get to come to work. My wife is stuck at home with them.

I'd love to ask your wife which is worse: kids sick or a husband with 'the man flu'.

(My husband seldom gets sick, but when he does he's impossible. It's like he's mad at his body for letting him down and takes it out on everyone around him. Over the years I've learnt not to offer any help, because he takes it as a further assault on his manliness.)
