At this time of year there always seems to be so many bugs going around, that it’s inevitable you are going to catch something. It’s doubly worse if your children are still at school. They always seem to be catching some sort of sniffle or cough and of course they bring it home to share with the rest of the family!
As well as the kids being poorly, when you work in a big office and there are so many people in such close proximity, it is inevitable that somebody is going to be unwell, so if you do manage to escape the dreaded lurgy you are doing well.
Of course we have to spare a thought for people who really are ill and not just with a cough and cold. A few people I know have unfortunately been struck down with the dreaded Swine Flu. One of my friends was really ill with it and was out of action for over 3 weeks. He said that he had never felt so ill in his whole life.
My neighbour has just had to go into hospital for the third time this year. It’s a shame as she keeps getting chest infections and has to go into hospital to be kept an eye on. Although she knows it is necessary to be admitted, she absolutely hates it. However, the one thing that really cheers her up whilst she is in hospital is receiving flowers on the ward.
We have some great florists in Birmingham who do some absolutely stunning bouquets of flowers. The florists I use for sending get well flowers are truly inspiring and a lot of thought and design goes into their stunning creations. In fact their designs are so brilliant that they have recently won an award for top online florist in the Birmingham area. However, its very well deserved as they always go out of their way to provide a great service and it doesn’t matter how busy they are, they haven’t lost the personal touch, which I think is great in this day and age.
