Of sickness and shopping



I know I've been a bit quiet lately - even more so in real life than in blogland, since I haven't had much of a voice since last week! I've been feeling generally achey and under the weather, too, and this morning I finally caved in and went to the doctor. She gave me a label (respiritory tract infection) and told me to carry on with my current regime of paracetamol and sleep, so I'm back in bed this afternoon.

If there's one plus side to being in bed for a week, it's having plenty of time to read (in between extensive bouts of sleep!). Again I'm glad I have a Kindle, so buying a new book is as easy as pressing a button and waiting a few seconds for it to arrive. I've never really liked shops (especially if they're busy) so this seems like a much more civilized method of shopping.

I've also got a new case for my Kindle, which I ordered a few weeks ago, and just arrived. The company is Javoedge, and they also make covers for various other gadgets - take a look if you're after something pretty and well-built. I'm certainly very happy so far.

Chicken soup and peppermint tea can cure many ailments. Feel better!

I adore my kindle and love getting books instantly when I want them. Hope you feel better soon!

I've been down with pneumonia for most of February and I'm just starting to feel normal again. Your post title made me giggle because my husband was checking our account balances and observed that being sick was quite good for my bank account level. I guess he's going to have mixed feelings about my being up and around again. Happy convalescing.

Sounds like the same miserable thing I had last week. Hope you recover quickly.

Things happen, okay what does that mean? I am not sure, but sometimes you are going along fine and then boom, a bug gets in your system and slows it down...take care of yourself!

You have to be well when you come visit!

Shops are no place for the sick, that's for sure, so Kindle-shopping is certainly an improvement there!

OOh, very pretty! The flu has been racaging a lot of people here so it's good that you are resting. Get well soon.

Debbie said...

Love your Kindle case! Now, if I only had a kindle!
Hope you are feeling better soon.

Stop telling me how great your Kindle is or I'm going to have to feed you chicken soup and steal it when you're napping haha.
Glad you're resting and reading - take care of yourself Rach x

Get well and enjoy reading!

I'm starting to think I need a Kindle. Or a Nook.

Oh, bother.

Charlotte said...

So sorry to hear you have been feeling under the weather. Here's hoping you're back to yer ol' self in no time! Plenty of rest, my dear.

Very cute Kindle cover!

I would literally NEVER give up my Kindle - I'm attached to it!

I hope you're feeling better now and you've had a lot of rest :-) I'm really not sure about "books that aren't books"...I might be a bit old-fashioned, but I really like to have the paper copy in my hand to flick through... Have a good and healthy week ahead xo

OOh beautiful case. I think I'll go to bed now. I don't feel so good and bed sounds comforting.
