The sun is out the sky is blue...pity I feel crap how about you?

It's ok I ain't about to ruin the weather by singing. How is it when we have good weather lately I feel so rubbish.

Just feeling sorry for myself as I have been hit bu pneumonia again. Not as bad this time the doc said cheerfully...mmmm ill not print my reply to him. So much as I aked when is pneumonia good in summer ?

Well at least I can lay in the shade ( can't lay in the heat) and cough away to myself.

The other good bit is I have had time to look at forum....Well good for me others mat not agree.

Am I babbling on...It's the drugs you see...You can always blame the drugs...or the bi ...or just being me in general.

Well all for now just going to throw my lungs into a bucket.....A saying of my grandads...yep bit graphic but he was like that....In fact it could explain where I get my humour. Anyway I digrest hope everyone is enjoying the sunny weather and is feeling brighter and better.

Now where's that darkened room gone.

Well pax time for me to try and lift you.

Sorry you are feeling rough you expect it in the winter not when it's bright and sunny. Today is looking brighter for me and hopefully when the meds kick in your day will get brighter. If not today then hopefully tomorrow.

Another side effect of a BI it seems, I only need to hear someone sneezing and it's a signal for me to come down with it. I hate public transport for that, you get cooped up with people suffering from I know not what. I've been known to wipe a handrail before I touch it if I know someone's touched it who's been coughing and sneezing🤧.

Anyway, take care

Hi Pax and Janet.

Why can we not just get a summer cold like others?

Do you reckon it's some of the meds lowering our immune systems or ,and I think this is more likely, our bi lives don't give us enough exposure to less nasty bugs?

In no way should what I am about to say be taken as advice

You could try getting some good quality tea tree oil and , after a patch test, always dab some just below your nose any time you leave the house.

I gave this tip to my mum (who had been prone to pneumonia ) many years ago and she has not had pneumonia since.

Hope you recover quickly Pax.

'Throw my lungs into a bucket' ??? 🐲

You DO sound a little bit delirious Pax but that might be a good thing ; means the meds are working.

I'm sorry you've been stuck down again so soon and I hope the antibiotics will pick you up in the next few days. You know the drill.............loads of fluids and rest. Get better soon Pax !

Take care, love Cat xx 🌷

Thanks Cat.

Yes my grandad was a a great little man....strange but great.

I loved when he had been in his words to the HORSEPITAL for a CHECK ME UP.

As for delirium I am sad to say no that's just normal me I am afraid.

Yep I am drinking and peeing lots of liquids but at last the meds have hit the spot.

Come to think of it delerium sounds a nice place may nip there on my hols.

Your old grandad sounds like someone from a Dickens novel ; quite a character.

Looks like you inherited those very genes Pax !

Glad you're starting to feel the effects of the anti-b's. xx

It's been bugging me .............. 'til I got it

The sun is out,

The sky is blue,

There's not a cloud

To spoil the view,

But it's raining...................

Raining in my heart.

I was a kid too, so couldn't afford to buy my own music. But my brother, being older and a Buddy Holly fan, had all his records and I soon became addicted.

I've just been on Youtube and had a pleasant journey back in time. :-/ x

Same here ; when I'm listening to 'I Giorni' or Grieg/Rachmaninoff piano concertos I think music can't get any better than that.

Then I hear a 'Blue' track or a blast from the distant past like Pink Floyd and realise how two faced I am. :o. x

Pink Floyd now you are talking. Then there's my big guilty pleasure quadrophinia. The album although the film is ok. Even autobahn by Kraftwerk. ...Oh dear my age is showing. Then stick vivaldi four seasons followed by les mis. Told you I was strange.

It's all good Pax ; in fact I think we should give it a title............................musical promiscuity ! 👀 x

Thanks Rockman.

Feeling better thanks to antI biotic. It was more a physical feeling rather than mental. Although the physical is easier to deal with its the one that catches me out.

Thanks once again for your concern and advice.
