Why do you always do stupid things when you're sick? Like having a bowl of red jelly next to your bed, adjusting your pillows and watching as the pillow flips, almost in slow-motion, to crash onto your bedside table and tip the bowl of jelly (and everything else) onto the floor? It seems so much harder to clean stuff up when you're feeling gross. I guess I never learned that fundamental lesson from Bert and Ernie in Sesame Street, that you should never eat in bed (I like eating in sue me, Bert).

So I cleaned the jelly up, took some more drugs and decided that instead of focusing on my klutziness, I would post these pics of the amazing arrangement that Russell and his family sent me from my favourite florist (Janina in Randwick, in case anyone's taking notes...). They're quite a jungly sort of arrangement, with interesting shapes, lotus pods, and lots of glossy green. A big contrast to the roses that Lynne and Howard brought, which are still looking and smelling amazing.

You can't go wrong with flowers and me, honestly. I mean, there are some I prefer over others, but just generally they are so pleasing and positive and, well, flowers just make everything seem that much better.

  1. Ahhh, red jelly and getting out of hospital... I have a vague recollection of such when I was about 3 1/2 even though I remember very little about the rest of my op. Glad to hear you are getting better quickly!
