Summer Solstice plus 1

Monday, June 23, 2014

I've been pretty much out of action for most of this month so far. I thought I had a bad a migraine - the likes of which I had never experienced - and it may have been the case but I've also had a very unpleasant viral infection which either caused the extreme head pain or was running parallel. I certainly had very swollen glands, all sorts of aches and pains and extreme lack of energy. I certainly wasn't interested in food but also it was too painful to do much exercise until last week. Hence a weight gain of 2 pounds which I found this morning has now disappeared again presumably due to a lot of running about once I felt up to it and some decorating that I was behind with. I find gains and losses a mystery sometimes but guess I have to take them in my stride.

Due to the decorating I sadly missed a Solstice party on the beach in a neighbouring seaside town, but I made up for it last night - sharing some time on the beach here in Brighton where I live with some friends and a beautiful sunset. Not done justice by my camera I have to add.

So I'm hoping to be on my Spark way again now everything has cleared up.

    Hi Sonia emoticon
    So pleased you're feeling better, I know how worried you were when you were feeling so lousy.
    Glad you got to make it to the beach last night and have some fun time.
    I have to say the sky was equally spectacular here, they say cameras never lie but they don't express the colours as well as your eyes capture do they.

    We're off to the open air Cliff Hotel restaurant for Jackie and Steve's last night and I hope it stays dry and we have another spectacular sunset to capture on film.

    Will chat soon, but for now got "stuff to do"..........SOZ

    Muchy stuff emoticon emoticon

    The sunset looks like a painting...so pretty!!
    You know, I had a similar virus, than I had to take antibiotics for earlier, which started with a really BAD headache and my head felt like it was going to implode. Then it went down in my neck and I was just so sick. Went to the Dr. and she gave me the meds. Sinus infection...but, it took me awhile to feel better. But, I think it was something else after that after the antibiotics stopped. Really weird! Just like you felt too! I have heard others speak of the same virus, so I figured I must have picked it up at the Dr.'s when I went for the sinus infection. I am glad you are better & was able to party on the beach! Thank you for stopping by! The winner of the photo contest will be announced on Aug. 7..voting continues through 7/13, if you want to vote. emoticon emoticon
