You just keep me hanging on...

By NDODS    
A title which means a lot to me. When I Julie asked me to marry her, I kept her waiting for quite some time. But my stubbornness soon began to drain, and I finally said yes.

Thank you for all you wonderful caring comments and sincere messages. Still very little improvement, I have spent the last 24 hours or so in bed so I am very weak and tired. Chest still gargling away like a clapped out outboard motor, but I am sure it will spark into life soon.

I hope that you all have a great day. For me more R & R whilst James whizzes around with the feather duster and the hoover.

Regards Nathan

P.S. I have just been informed that the Tomato was the original fruit of love

I now have this hilarious image in my mind of James, complete with white pinny, yielding a feather duster around your sick bed Wink.
I do hope you perk up soon, Nathan, I'm sure the outboard motor is about to spark into action at any moment Smile
A lovely image, too. Carol

The sun is out here today Nathen with all the little birds singing away,and that's a good sign of what's comming,SPRINGSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile
And youn will feel much better soon Nathen as long as you take things easy for a while.
My Medicine for tiredness would be great for you,I was off work once for 6 weeks "Run Down" and my Mother used to give me this twice a day.I still take it if I feel verry tirred.
I beat an egg into a mug,,little bit of sugar and some milk up to half the mug,and if you have any Sherry a little bit of it as well.Then drink it .have a goTongueTongueTongueTongueTongueTongueTongue
By the way this is a great image.

"I beat an egg into a mug,,little bit of sugar and some milk up to half the mug,and if you have any Sherry a little bit of it as well." My grandad used to swear by this though he used brandy. If you try all these hints you'll be drunk as a skunk!!! I love all your 'drip' pictures - you must have more rain than us!!! Take care, Nathan, life will improve!Grin

Well seen and captured Nathan. Personally I would have gone for pretty much a square crop from the RH side to give greater emphasis to the tomato.

It looks remarkably beautiful adorned as it is with that jewel-like waterdrop. Hope now the snow has passed and we've rediscovered sunshine, you start to recover very soon.
