Winter's over isn't it?

Well, this has been one nasty winter for me.

The cold times are well and truly over and I can feel the weather warming up.

The beach is just around the corner and I want to enjoy some of the sunshine and sand that made me move to this silly city.

After a winter of what seemed like constant illness, I'm very much looking forward to the seasonal change.

Standing at the bus stop in the morning before going to work, I can smell the ocean breeze. It's inviting and fresh. I look forward to some early morning and early evening swims!

Terrible luck....


Seriously amazing.

Wonderful even.

I had ended up in hospital. I had been struck down with what the doctor would describe as being "incredibly unlucky".

Laying in the hospital bed feeling faint and weak was not the most pleasant experience.

However, like most experiences there were the funnier parts. Waking up to find myself surrounded by the medical students and their professor going through my case would definitely rank up there. It felt like I was in a medical drama, except from a vastly different perspective. Laying in the bed, looking up a bed surrounded by people in white coats all talking intently whilst looking at you is a surreal experience that makes you feel almost detached from reality.

Thankfully, my stay wouldn't last too long. I was looked after by the fantastic (and disturbingly overworked) staff and allowed to leave.

Hopefully there will be no return trips.
