I have been sick all weekend, rushed around to doctors, pathologists and pharmacists - I haven't eaten anything in 3 days but after a good night's sleep and antibiotics finally kicking in I woke up to a beautiful sunny day and looking forward to a warm bowl of porridge for breakfast. My sparkle has returned and I feel like I'm back in the land of the living! Sunlight is streaming through the window - my garden is aglow with golden wattle and the smell of freesias is wafting through the open window. Spring has well and truly arrived! My thoughts are turning to entertaining, garden parties and weekend visitors. It's time to start gathering some ideas and planning a few parties. I'm loving the the popsicle and champagne 'cocktail' - my girlfriends would think that was a heap of fun (best not to waste the good French Champagne on that one though!).
