6WS - Please send me the good fairy

I think the sick fairy has waved her glitter wand over my family this week and said 'tag you're it' because we're not the healthiest bunch at the moment.

I very rarely get sick but this is the second time in 12 months I've been laid flat, after not having been sick in years and years.

My cold has eased up but I think it's moved to my chest so I now have a cough that could possibly dislodge one of my lungs if I'm not careful.

Yep, six months of not smoking and I can still bark like a dog. I thought healthy eating, no smoking and yoga was meant to be good for you - what gives?

Youngest still has a cold and my grandson has a gastro bug so I'm staying right away from him this weekend. A cough and the pukes - hmmm wouldn't be a nice combination for him or for me. Eldest son is dealing with a sicky bub and doing a super job, he's even given up tickets to Clipsal (V8 car racing) tomorrow to stay home with him.

So this Saturday night, my awesome cough (who's not very socially adept) and I are sitting in front of the television and watching "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" - the version with Jonhny Depp. Such a cute movie but so many lessons about people and personalities when you look at it from an adult perspective.

Tommorow I'm hoping the bark and the chest congestion take a vacation so that I can attend the Adelaide Writers Festival. It occurred to me when I considered whether I would go or not (aside from feeling like crap), that not one of my friends would probably be interested in going. None of my non-bloggy friends write, in fact a lot of them don't even read.

Sort of puts paid to my belief that we should surround ourselves with like-minded people who share the same hobbies and past times as we do. I think I need to make some writer friends.

This week is one of the most culturally diverse and interesting weeks in Adelaide's calendar and the town goes a little crazy with a massive influx of people. We have Clipsal which is a 4 day car race extravaganza, the Adelaide Festival which is 16 days of theatre, music, dance, comedy shows and activities and of course the Writers Week which runs in conjuction with the Festival.

You couldn't find two more different groups of visitors than for these. The crowd who drink wine and go to cultural shows up against the blokey blokes who drink beer and like the grid girls and fast cars. Excuse my extremely stereotypical descriptions because I'm sure there is just as much cross over between the two groups of people and the activities as well.

Plenty to do and not a week when you want to be sick or working for that matter. Too much to see and do.

What's happening in your world this week?
 
Cheers, Fi
