Rebellious Body

Well after being unusually healthy since August and hoping that I'd finally turned the corner healthwise, I woke Wednesday with very bad upset stomach . Couldn't risk the bus journey to work (more than an hour with no toilet access ) so rang in sick. Slept most of the day in the hope of recovering but woke with sore throat , temperature and swollen glands - developed ear ache as well later so had to text to say I'd be back Monday.
Didn't think I'd be able to do Saturday - Bath - but I felt better after resting a few days so it probably was my body in protest mode.
The American Museum at Claverton Manor was decorated for Christmas with a Flights of Fancy theme. We met the ladies of the Sampler Guild and started with a lovely cup of coffee and home made cookies then made a raid on the book shop and Christmas decorations. Then it was back to the cafe for lunch - for Ellie baked potato with lots of cheese , for me butternut squash soup and chunky homemade bread. Then we toured the house , with Ellie hunting kites with Father Christmas notes attached.Then it was back to the cafe to meet up with the ladies and compare goodies !!! Then home by train , bus and foot - shame about the rain .
Forgot to say the wonderful quilts and hook rugs are amazing and well worth a visit on their own

I have been as healthy as a horse as well all fall long (not sure when the last time I was actually sick not just a migraine). So I'm starting to wonder when the "other shoe" will drop and I'll get sick as a dog. Knowing my luck it'll be over the Christmas break!

Sounds like you had a fun day!

Glad to hear you felt better after a couple of days rest and was able to go to the museum, sounds like you both had a wonderful day.
