Stars at night

I've been down with a cold and a slightly itchy throat.  As usual, I don't take anything because I hate going to the doctor and I prefer not to take any medication unless I have a fever.

Since I believe that this will pass, I take the opportunity to rest and do nothing.  I feel that if anything is going to help, it would be that sense of not needing to do anything.  

There was a time when I used to drag myself to work even when I had a fever, bad cough and cold or whatever.  I know many working moms do this.  Now when I look back at how resilient I was, I can feel a sense of strength that I sometimes forget I have.

These days I don't need to report to anybody or be anywhere and it's a luxury I don't take for granted.  I only have to worry about myself and getting well. 

And just to prove that I haven't lost my sense of humour even when I'm sick, here are some "knock knock" jokes, taken from the world wide web:

Knock knock
Who's there?
Atch who? 
Sorry, I didn't know you had a cold.

Knock knock
Who's there? 
Eddie who? 
Eddie body home? 

Knock knock
Who's there? 
Booo who? 
Don't cry, its only a joke! 


  1. You can't be THAT ill if you can make knock-knock jokes!!!

    Sending a cyber hug and good vibes into the universe for you!!


    1. Hahaha, Stephen just saw them this morning and read them out loud. I'm not that ill but sometimes I can be a drama queen, you know. LOL
