Today’s blog is dedicated to a good friend of mine, I might not see him much (understatement) but that does not make him any less important… I choose to blame the lack of contact on the North/South divide (he lives in London, I live a lot further north).
This blog is purely an attempt to help pass 5 mins off his time as he rests up at home. For the majority of the day I am sure he is being tortured by day time TV (which is even worse in the school holidays).
A horrendous accident occurred when the nameless friend was walking home, from a night out, after a couple of drinks with friends at the pub. I am sure this is a familiar concept to most of us, strolling along trying to keep a straight (ish) line.
Unfortunately this dear friend stumbled off the pavement only to be hit by a taxi! Needless to say some pretty serious damage has been done. If that isn’t a lesson to us all to be a little more careful I am not sure what is???
Thankfully he is now safe at home and resting with a sore head and a recovering (but very broken) leg.
The purpose of this blog is not only to make us all a little bit more cautious but also to dedicate all today’s quotes to my friend. I really hope you get better very soon.
Love and hugs coming your way.
Our bodies are our gardens – our wills are our gardeners.
I reckon being ill as one of the great pleasures of life, provided one is not too ill and is not obliged to work till one is better.
~Samuel Butler, The Way of All Flesh, 1903
A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.
The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d druther not.
If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you. ~Gladstone, 1865
