Woof Woof!!

You'll be please to hear that my razor throat is much better, I just sound husky and interesting now...but my cough!!! I sound like a dog!! (OK, so I look like one too!)

Charlie has had a hard few days as he is totally confused and upset that I open my mouth and this awful noise comes out. I am sure he thinks I'm trying to bark!!

When it first started he rushed around looking worried every time I made that "nasty noise"..but as the cough worsened he changed to upset....then he started barking along with me. It must have looked like a bad comedy film with me doubled up coughing, him rushing around and barking and everyone falling over each other.

At the moment he is lying there watching me....just daring me to bark!!! When I do he will immediately join in. Perhaps he thinks I'm trying to learn his language...but badly!! If that's the case then he certainly would not make a patient teacher. His rushing around and barking seem to me as if he's saying "No! Not like that...like this....your accent is awful!!". I can imagine his frustration that I'm  such a bad pupil...a bit like my French teacher was at school.

On Monday I tried a day at a reference library, the idea being I would do some research work...wrong!! It didn't take me long to workout that my fellow researchers did not appreciate my breaking the hallowed silence. The silence was such you could cut it with a knife....until I arrived. Then woof, woof, woof....no I didn't take Charlie!! It was me on my warm up routine. All eyes swivelled in my direction in hostile glares. I tried to look like it wasn't me...but this awful noise just kept jumping out of my mouth!! No matter what I did it stopped for a while and then........ROAR!!!

I do eventually know when I'm beat so after several attempts at silence I decided to give them peace and came home to some hot lemon and honey.

Now the real news.... the sun has shone here for three days! Yep, three!! It has been beautiful and shows me that Spring has started..thank goodness. I hate the Winter with  all that darkness and cold.

To celebrate I made two "hand painted" papers (I only did two as they take so long!). They remind me of the forest floor when Spring arrives, dotted with new colour and life. They may not be every ones cup of tea but I love them!!

Thank you so much June for these beautiful pages and for your incredible writing - I sit here and just laugh because you are so descriptive that I can just imagine everything as it happens.

Glad it is warming up for you. I hate cold weather too though fortunately we very rarely need to wear a jacket in winter here.

Look after yourself. Sending warm Aussie hugs to you, Keryn

Hope by now, you are feeling better and also hope that your barking didn't destroy all the training you did with Charlie. He probably thinks that he's in charge now - again. Your painted papers are very pretty.

Oh Dear! Poor barky Cen! Thanks for the bootyfull papers...and try some 'homemade cough syrup': equal parts honey, lemon juice and bourbon. After several spoonsful, you'll still cough once in a while, but you won't care as much...
