|One Good thing to come from a few days at home.|
For the last week I have struggled with a virus/cold/flu type thing. It’s OK, we all get sick but I always recover pretty quickly. This time however it is dragging. I have had nearly a week off work (nobody likes an office martyr) and on the days I did go to work, I was sent home again.
So, I had no choice but to languish on the couch watching TV and surfing the net.
There are a few rules in our house about being sick.
· We all understand that you may be feeling unwell – but don’t whine about it constantly
· Get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids
· The person who is unwell should not be involved in food preparation (Frustratingly, this one doesn’t seem to apply to me though)
· And the new one to add to the list – Never give a bored, sick person access to a credit card.
As I was lounging on the couch I started browsing wool sites. This is nothing new, I do it all the time and my favourite seller had a bag of 10 skeins of Noro Furin on sale. So, I bought it. Next was a skein of Araucania sock wool to add to my ever burgeoning stash of sock wool. At this point, I thought that was enough. No more spending. Have a nap instead – it’s much cheaper.
I was woken from a nap on the couch by my phone ringing. It was the winery where Peter and I buy our wine. I know it sounds a bit pretentious but after searching for a long time for a nice classic dry white wine, we finally found one. (Vasse Felix Classic Dry White – Very nice indeed) so we cut out the middle man and buy direct from the winery. It was good news! Our wine was on sale – so I bought 2 cartons. 2 CARTONS! I can’t justify 2 cartons. What was I thinking? I think I was still asleep or maybe dreaming about when I am well again and how lovely a cold glass of wine would be. Right now, it’s the last thing I feel like. So I started feeling a bit miserable at my spending.

So I am single handedly building the Roman Empire surrounded by wool and wine in the true Romanesque fashion. I really hope I get better soon. I can’t afford to live like a Roman.
Happy Empire Building,
