IT NEVER RAINS ......

..... BUT IT POURS.

Another one of my Nana's sayings? You guessed.

A friend of Husband dearest and I always used to say ...

The light at the end of the tunnel is the next train waiting to knock you down.

A bit cynical I know but life sometimes does feel like this.

Anyway, not only have we seen the light but Hd has indeed been hit by that train - not literally thank goodness.

Feeling unwell since Monday, he was taken into hospital on Tuesday evening with what first appeared to be a flare up of his Crohnns Disease but turned out to be food poisoning - not good but better than a flare up of Crohns. The result being he has been moved to a room by himself and can only be approached by staff wearing aprons, gloves and masks etc. Not too sure about visitors, the hospital has yet to decide if even I can visit.

Its not all bad news though ......

Vivienne of Serendipity has sent me an email to let me know I have won a signed copy of .....



A Western mystery, not a genre I am familiar with, I look forward to broadening my reading and would like to thank Vivienne for hosting the giveaway and publishers Orion for sending the book.

My thoughts on hearing it was food poisoning was ....better than a flare up...but wasnt sure that was a good comment....you have said it now.

All best wishes coming for a speedy recovery for your H.

And don't forget to look after yourself. Having a loved one in hosp takes it toll.

Sorry to hear about your husband... I hope he feels better soon. What with IBS and a couple of food intolerances, I can sympathise with anything tummy related!

Congrats on the win! :)

Hope Husband dearest is feeling better! Food poisoning is horrible, and also tough on the spouse who is left home to worry. Take care of yourself, and hope he's safe at home by now!

I am so sorry to hear about your husband.Glad to know that he is back to his good health.My daughter suffered a very serious bout of food poisoning probably because of a soft drink served at school cafeteria.Symptoms subsided but she is still very weak.
By the way Congratulations on the book.
