After work, my flu and I went on an evening walk. The sky was beautiful, you know how the clouds sometimes turn a golden pink in areas and a blueish purple in others? That's how it was this evening. After being cooped up at work today, the breeze on my skin and a walk along tree lined streets as opposed to mazes of lino floored corridors.
My mother in law is a great fan of honey and lemon tea for colds and I took her advice and got myself a bottle of honey and a lemon to take with me to work tomorrow. Did you know that you can now find lemons on Facebook? They appear to have their own fan page. I'm going to have to 'like' the page and add a comment about how well lemon juice has served the scratchy throats of generations.
If there is an upside to my having the flu, it would be my temporary apathy to carbs. It's been days since peanut butter and honey on toast sounded like a great idea for dinner. Sometimes, I think the bread in our kitchen feels smothered by the attention I lavish upon it. It's good that we have time apart every so often. It prevents our relationship from getting too toxic or co-dependent. So, I've got my favourite fruit jelly cups on standby. In the freezer because they needed to get cold fast.
Thank you to everyone who's been offering advice about what shoes to wear with navy.

Confident with the advice that style mavens often wear navy with black, I did it again today. It is only Tuesday and probably too early in the week for Casual Jeans Day but concessions (for comfort) have to be made when you've got the flu.

William and Kate are also loving navy at the moment. This photo was from today, I think. It was their last formal engagement before their wedding. Despite the rain, everyone there looked completely under the spell of the soon to be married couple. Myself included. In case you haven't already gathered, I am capital E Excited about the wedding. I've almost forgotten the Z word (Zara) because of it.
I'm looking after myself, don't you worry. I had salmon and asparagus spears for dinner. Baked in the oven in the one parcel with a bit of thyme and olive oil over the top.
