Hi there blog friends. Just a short post today. I have been rather ill with shingles. It comes from the chicken pox virus, which lays dormant in your bod until something triggers its return? I must say it has been a scary experience, because I had this in my eye and just above, and it was painful and frightening, to see my face swell up like that! I'm going to put a photo of my ugly mug below, so those with a nervous disposition look away now!!
In the midst of this we had a trip to Bruges planned, so the pretty pictures are up here. Bruges is a very beautiful place, with oodles of chocolate shops and pretty buildings. It was a relaxing sort of break, although the train travel on the Eurostar was quite lengthy, I just slept through a lot of it. We paid a visit to Ypres and the cemetry at Paschendale, along with 2 Canadian dwellers and an Irish couple. It was a very moving trip, quite humbling really. If you intend to leave now, before looking at my face below. bye for now and see you soon :)))))

Warning, below is my ugly mug all swollen and painful.(tried to make it small) I am getting much better now. Just got some weird tugging sensations above my eye and it's all quite numb, I think the nerve ends took a battering, quite like my face. I'm hoping the feeling comes back very soon. See you all again soon, with something lovely and arty to look at! :)
