My date. It's gone!

No thanks to poor health. If my readers remember that in one of my posts some days ago, I was happily writing about how I looked forward to my Valentine's date with my boyfriend, I am sorry to say my date has been cancelled for the day. I am feeling unwell to go for the orchestra rehearsal today.

The doctor gave me a day of outpatient medical leave and urged me to rest. Symptoms include: headaches, fever, diarrhoea, blocked nose that came from time to time. Feeling weak, but I didn't want to go back to my bed and end up having an overdose of sleep. I guess I shall just rest by doing light activities.

I decided I shall be obedient to the doctor's advice, for once, and shall stay at home to rest. My state of health has been declining lately that I reckon if I would like more years to spend with the double bass, I should learn to take moments of rest where necessary.

The consoling thing may be that as I type and write about my disappointments of a cancelled Valentine's date, I still have my dear double bass, my husband standing tall and upright fairly nearby me.

Nevertheless, thank goodness that I am still able to wish all a Happy Valentine's Day.

There are few things more delightful than a restful evening at home with one's husband. Hope your rest helps you to feel better.
