sick & icky

I saw my French doctor yesterday for the very first time. He told me I have tonsillitis. (He is so not my favorite person right now. Except, he did give me the drugs. OK, back on the Christmas card list he goes).

I’m cranky, sick, and icky.
(And I look pretty icky too. Sick is not a good look on me)

The Husband has left for work and Fifty is being pretty worthless. I keep asking him to make me tea but he just sits there, staring at me. I’m not impressed.

Fifty, “WHERE IS MY TEA?”
(I can only shout while typing at the moment.)

Nothing.

Maybe I’ll call Ruby.

Ruby looks like he could make a nice cup of tea.
icky bisou

  10. I think you need to work harder at training Fifty – what kind of dog is he if he can't even make a cup of tea! Whisky is probably a better option anyway – I'm sure he could at least manage to pour you a whisky.

  20. Hi Sara, great blog you have here. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well and that FIfty isn't pulling his weight. You need to send him to St Bernard school in the Alpes so he can pick up one of those little kegs for his collar. You'll still have to make the tea yourself, but at least he can lace it for you.Take care, get well!

  22. I did not know it was possible to get tonsillitis while in France. This does not seem to match the image of perfection I have in my head.Hope you feel better soon.
