It's Monday and...

Usually by Sunday night I know what I'm going to talk about on my Monday blog post, but nothing came to me yesterday...

Now I have to admit there's a good reason for that. My cold of the past few days became a nasty chest infection and yesterday morning I was so ill I ended up with the one man ambulance car coming out to me to check my chest pains weren't a serious problem.

Everything was fine and I just needed to see the emergency doctor for antibiotics.

I'm now on my second day of medicine and I'm feeling much more human. But it did cross my mind yesterday, that if I'd lived in earlier centuries, the outcome of my chest infection would have been very different- and eventually fatal...

Which brings me to mentioning Rosemary Gemmell's, Romancing History blog, where today's subject is Garrow's Law and The Old Bailey. If you haven't seen it before, it's worth watching.


  1. Glad to hear you are feeling better after the awful weekend you had. Hope the meds keep the nasty beasties away for good, this time ! x

  2. Antibiotics are one of the most important developments in our history.

    Imagine living in a damp, cold dwelling. A minor infection would become a killer.

  3. Thanks for the kind thoughts, Lexia.
    I feel a little more with the world today compared to yesterday.

    Exactly, Baggy, antibiotics have saved so many people.

  4. That's a shame, Carol - hope your chest clears up very soon.

    Thanks for the mention! We are definitely very lucky living in this century.

  5. I'm improving slowly, Rosemary, but have had to cancel a few things this week.

  6. I hope you are feeling much better now Carol. You look after yourself. x

  7. Yes I'm feeling much better, Diane, thank you for the kind thoughts.
