Get Well Soon Card

Look what arrived in the post yesterday!

A lovely homemade, get-well-soon card from Cathy. I absolutely love anything handmade and this really cheered me up. Do you think she knows how much I love pink!

I have Covid, Cathy has had Covid so it has been lovely to have someone of my vintage to compare notes with.

I have not been too bad, mainly lacking in energy. I am pretty sure I caught the virus at a family wedding, as my son, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and several other guests all got it at the same time. And it was SUCH a magical day!

Little Miss M was a bridemaid and here we are comparing headdresses

and footwear

She had smarter shoes for the formal bit.

My daughter also loves pink!

I was so pleased to be able to wear the same jacket, skirt and fascinator that I wore to her wedding 16 years ago.

The decorations in the marquee were spectacular

so was the cake

Which I was glad to be able to taste at the time.

With Covid, I briefly lost my sense of taste, which was very strange.

I could taste salt, sweetness, bitterness and spicyness in curry and mustard, but all with no flavour. The colours, texture, and temperature became very noticeable.

Milky is silky. Bananas were the weirdest, crisps were luxury!

My taste is gradually returning but I still can’t smell anything (especially not something burning!).

How are you all?

Take care.

  8. Oh, that wedding looks lovely. So sorry you caught Covid. Unfortunately, very easy to catch, and I know lots of people who have had it. Really snappy card! So cheerful.

  10. I’m so glad you’re on the mend! Lovely photos, and no hint of what’s to come, you look flourishing. I have some idea of what you are going through: during chemo, I lost the ability to taste things correctly. Fruit all tasted bad. Lots of things had no taste at all. Chocolate was like eating clay, quite disgusting. There are still days when I experience some disturbance in taste, although they’re thankfully few.I do hope your sense of smell returns completely with a full recovery. Hugs xxx
