Getting over bugs

This was a great book to read
I finished it this yesterday, 
Plot, storytelling and ending was brilliant
One of the best books I have read in ages. 
I am now looking for the sequel After You
 I have stitched all the hexagons I cut out at the weekend
 These are my next colours, 
might try and cut them later
 I had to move fabrics around so I could make another couple of small sections.
I can fit more hexagons in if they are stacked top to bottom
It does only look as if I have added 5 diamonds 
but I have infilled loads above, I'm pleased with the progress
I spent ages stitching yesterday
I have not been out of the house since Saturday, when I went to my hairdressers, I was not well enough really to go, but I would have had to wait ages for another appointment. I have been inside in the warm fighting germs. Today I feel a bit better, headache has finally decided to give me a rest, plus I slept reasonable well last night. If I can get this cough to take a hike, then normal living might come back. I'm not a sickly person, normally I would work through whatever, but this bug is not very nice. Hubby now has the same bug, plus youngest daughter is coming down with it, so as you can imagine I am not the most popular person in this family.
I have Thursday and Friday booked as holiday, so I don't have to worry about going back to work this week. I would like to pop out into the garden one day, which is a real good sign I am on the mend.

I too loved that book, a topic that was good for discussion at my book group.
Get well {hugs}, there are such a lot of nasty germs about right now, I hope you are soon feeling much better

Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly hope you start to feel brighter real soon. Love the colours of your patchwork and I also love the box you have it all organised in, its looks so efficient, dee x

I've got that book in my pile waiting to be read, I might read it next as I'm coming to the end of one.

I've recently read this book too and I agree, it's one of the best books I've read of late too. Hope you're feeling better soon.

I keep hearing about people being struck down with this bug, so far I have avoided it a few weeks back hubby was bug laden I managed to avoid it thank goodness

I agree about the book - (although, just a minor niggle, I would like to see it with a less 'chick lit' cover as I felt this demeaned the story) I thought it was excellent - poignant, moving, but uplifting. It's a film now too, so I wonder how that will work. Like you, I have the sequel on my wishlist!
Excellent organisation going on too - I wish I could be like that!
Best wishes
