No Alanis Morissette for me tonight

And here I am, observing the birds in my back yard, chasing each other around to get the best bite of peanuts, sunflower seeds and peanut butter.

Gloriously relaxed, watching Monk, while sipping tea.

Not at work slaving away, but home. Sweet home.

On top of that, tonight is the Guardian Angel Tour 2012 of Alanis Morissette in Tilburg. A concert I’ve been looking forward to for months! A concert that is sold out! The only concert she gives here in Holland! A concert I have two tickets to! 😀

I am one lucky woman.

Except…

I also have a coldflu, whatever, wich makes my head and throat hurt. My muscles ache. My stamina back to zero and my eyes water. Stupid germs, bacteria and viruses that are torturing my body so I can’t hear Alanis sing live in front of me tonight… I am pissed off and raving mad most disappointed. But above all, I’m sad.

A lady friend will accompany my partner to Tilburg in my place. Please enjoy triple for me? *hugs*

So here I am, observing the birds in my back yard, chasing each other around to get the best bite of peanuts, sunflower seeds and peanut butter.

Bummer!

PS. Here’s a photo my friend sent me during the concert. She also called me three times to let me hear the music. I only heard a lot of noise and applause, but was touched by her gesture.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well (or, as we say here, I’m so sorry you’re under the weather)! And how sad, to miss a concert you’ve been looking forward to. 😦 Just listen to the birds sing, instead, and think of how much WORSE you’d feel, if you weren’t snuggled in at home. HUGS!

    1. You are so right, Marian. Going to the concert would have worsened things immensely. For now, I’m trying to be patient. But I’m not a patient patient 😉 How are you doing? Thanks so much for those hugs.

            1. Trying to attack my trachea into irritation, so I’m trying not to cough too much. If that happens, I’ll be down for three weeks. En ik spreek uit ervaring. Bleh. Thanks for asking, very thoughtful of you 🙂

  2. Oh nee!!!!! En je was zo blij met je tickets en het vooruitzicht. Wat jammer, maar ik wens je veel, heel veel beterschap zodat je je weer snel kiplekker voelt! x

    1. I have left out completely the screams that are developing in my chest. Fortunately for the neighbors I’m too afraid to launch into a coughing fit to let them free. And there are far worse things in the world than missing a concert.
      But, Lesley, I would have LOVED to see Alanis perform. Thanks for making me smile.

  3. Aw darlin’. It is most important to take care of yourself now. I am sorry that you will miss the concert, honestly I am. Instead while the others are gone to it, play the music loudly and dream that you are there. Let your boys pamper you during this time and get yourself better. Lovely photos.
    Much love and many warm healing hugs to you.
    Jules ((hugs))

    1. You are so right, sweetheart. Getting better is more important than seeing her perform live and then break down for three weeks. My lungs are ticklish and I have to take extremely good care then, or else it will become a trachea infection. I’m very sensitive to that.
      So I will do what you suggested and whip my sons into slavery, only to please me 😉
      The birds are so funny and lively, I could watch them for hours.
      Love you to pieces, have a great day, Jules! Almost Thanksgiving 😀

  4. Wat een pech, Marion, dus gauw maar weer beterschap gewenst.
    Hier ook al zo’n vervelende, hardnekkige verkoudheid, met blafhoesten terwijl ik geen hond ben… 😉

    1. Ben al twee dagen thuis, Ietje. En ja, ik baal als een stekker en nog veel meer. Heb haar nu op Spotify, beter dan niks heh. Zolang mijn longen zich rustig houden, zal ik snel beter worden ja. Thanks, sweetie x
