Random Sceneries…

I am very shocked, outraged and saddened by the mass-shooting in Paris. I want the assailants to be caught swiftly so they face the justice of this heinous crime committed in the name of religion against freedom of speech. I can not condemn it any stronger! You cowards!!

Hubbie is still down with flu. He coughs incessantly and complains about sinus pain and headache. While he thrashes about in bed, I bring him endless cups of tea, Horlicks and Lemsip. Oh, is there any more I can do to make him feel better? I am so glad that I have had my flu vaccination done last November. Even though I do feel something unpleasant in the back of my throat for a few days, my immune system seems to be stopping the symptom to develop any further…

These images below were taken when I was around the town before and after Christmas.

Now, I must fix another cup of Horlicks for Hubbie. Let’s hope he can have a better night sleep tonight…

      • Brilliantly said! Love it! It’s so true. I’m hoping that the paper will carry on their publication so I can buy the copies. Even though my french is so basic and therefore I may not understand much, I want to support the legacy which is left by those who were gunned down yesterday…😠
