It came upon me so quickly; one evening I had the aches and thought that I had 'flu coming on, then a few days later it had turned into pneumonia which left me feeling totally feeble, shivering, breathless and with a hacking cough to boot. Now, I'm not one to give out public health messages, but if you've ever got 'flu and find yourself breathless, then phone your GP at once. I didn't realise until my GP confirmed it that pneumonia can take a sudden grip - even if you're a healthy adult with no underlying health issues - and if untreated, pneumonia can have serious consequences. Luckily for me though, I didn't have to go to hospital and was prescribed antibiotics with my GP telling me to "Take things easy". I felt so rough I didn't even feel like knitting!

The other book I brought is a very hefty tome indeed: Mrs Beeton's Cookery and Household Management dating from 1960. I love cookery books that also include colour photos and this book has plenty ranging from food assortments such as bread....
...through to room interiors like these coloured bathroom suites. These photos made me wonder if the spectre of avocado and brown bathroom suites from the Seventies has seen off coloured suites like these for good? I wouldn't mind inheriting a period bathroom with a perfect primrose yellow bath and sink like that below; I think they look really pretty. Although, I don't go much on mixing colours like the blue bath and pink bidet (very continental for the time!) and loo! Far too optically busy for me.
P.S. Hello and welcome to my new readers :-)
