|At the border between England and Scotland|
But for the last two-three days I've been feeling rotten with a bad cold and really convulsive coughing which beset me twice during the concert on Tuesday night. I'm so grateful that we had a very kind audience who know us well and who finished the last song for me cos I was coughing so badly.
Our hosts for the night, Mike and Tish, were so sweet. We chatted for a while when we came in and next morning, before I got as far as the shower Tish came in and very kindly ordered me back to bed. We had yesterday off and had planned to find a hotel and just lie about for the day - this was after the original plan of meeting a cousin for lunch had to be shelved due to my sniffles. Anyway, I digress. So they had decided I looked so ill that we could just stay with them for the free day. And boy was I grateful. Everyone went out and left me dozing - I didn't get up until after 5 - I couldn't have if I'd tried. And thankfully I'm a lot better today.
The simplest of gifts mean so much and that was worth a lot to me. Thank you both so much.
What kindnesses have helped your week?
