lazy grey september

What a start to September, lazy indeed.

Not out of choice but because of the flu bug that might last 3-4 weeks, according to the nurse. I reckon I will be alright after this weekend. Being ill for more than a couple of days makes me cross and impatient so in my mind, 10 days of illness just has to be it. I refuse to feel weak for a whole month.

But while feeling weak and cross, I do remember to relax and to look at the bright side. It's not all that bad. Boyfriend has been equally poorly, so we've been taking turns doing the daily chores, cooking etc according to who feels less sick at the given moment. During my turns to walk to the grocery store, I can breath deep and enjoy the beautiful late summer - early autumn weather. The sunshine and the good weather makes us feel a bit happier, even if we have to look at it from indoors most of the time.

I attach this photo of grey rain clouds brightened by a rainbow smile to this month Colour Me Happy link-up.

PS. Thank you for your nice comments to my previous post and for wishing me better! xx


  1. Wow, what a cute rainbow! I really like the double picture.
    Sounds that you are getting better! Great!
    But take your time.
    Bye, Steph.

    1. it took a while but i'm all good now! i find rainbows so satisfying to take pictures of, love that it's just coloured light. however i almost always am reminded of pink and yellow teddybears sliding down rainbows to rescue something ;) (did you used to watch that show, carebears? i did, even though i was a bit too teenage-y when it was aired in hungary... )

  2. What a beautiful rainbow! I really like your "grey" pictures !
    Thanks for your tip concerning my cabinet.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. thanks Nina - hope you have found a good solution! x

  3. 3-4 weeks??? That's rubbish!! I hope you feel better very soon!
    Those photos are amazing! I love rainbows!

    1. i feel much much better now - not gonna be all that long after all... thanks - i'm very pleased with my cameraphone right now! :)

  4. I think the nurse sussed you as someone who doesn't like to be held back and was just trying to get you to take it easy - be kind to yourself! Remember too that sometimes viruses leave a kind of depressed emotion in their wake. I always find my mood lifts as soon as I remember that the bad feelings were just caused by a virus!!

    It's sweet that you and your boyfriend are taking good care of each other. I'm sure that helps to keep the rainbows in your eyes!

    Get well soon xx

    1. that's an interesting take on her suggestion, could well be! it didn't last that long after all. thank you for the reminder about the depressive phase, it came in handy for both of us to remember that. we are a good team, me and the boyfriend :) thanks Suki! xx

  5. The rainbow picture is great.
    Hope you feel better soon.
