Sunday afternoon

Hi everybody. Just a quick update today. I went to the doctors on Thursday as my chest infection seemed to be getting worse. He gave me antibiotics and said he thought I had pneumonia. It does seem a little better now.I've been playing around with this site and managed to get a Feedblitz widget set up so if you want to you can add your email and get alerts for my entries. Don't ask how I did it, I can't remember any of it except knowing I clicked a squillion buttons! Lol! I also managed to import my AOL journal over here last night. I left it private and added a few regular readers to it. I shall carry on using this one as my main blog but it's nice to know I haven't lost my old one! I shall carry on with my Madagascar review soon but I just wanted to show you one of the prettiest creatures I saw there ~ well, I think he's pretty but then I like bugs! This was a locust we spotted while driving along in the desert, we actually stopped the minibus so we could get photos. John, one of our tour guides held him up so we could get better pics!Even if you don't like bugs you have to admit that this one is pretty!

I hope you're all having a good weekend. Bye for now. Whoops, I accidently did this entry in my practise journal, I couldn't just copy and paste it here so had to re-do it all!

I hope that you are feeling better soon. That is some insect. I took feedblizt off mine. I subscribed to lots of others and I was lucky if I got one a week from them. I now use the blogger one under gadgets, we will see how that goes.

Hi Jeannette, sorry to hear you are ill and after all that traveling too. Hope you feel better soon. I too have been with feedblizt but not getting any alert hardly from it. Will try something else. Love Joan.

I'm glad you are starting to feel better, Jeannette. LOL...I was a day late and a dollar short with being able to feed my comments. Seems everybody knew about it but me. Haha, figures.

I can't wait to see more pictures. How exotic Madagascar is. That was one huge but brilliant insect and the sea, Lord, how lovely!

I'll add myself to your feedblitz. I've just been using the blogger dashboard for alerts.
Love xx Chris
