Woman Of The House

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather today, not because it’s been pouring down outside but because l have a recurring bout of Tonsillitis- ironically just after have told a blogger friend that l was feeling much better. Never finished my course of Penicillin properly ~ am feeling angry with myself as l am forever telling the kids to take the whole course! Anyway went to the Doc’s yesterday and am back on track.
Spent the morning clearing up my Mac Desktop ~ what a mess! So now all files have been organized, much to trash and a few CD’s burned too- good.
While doing this l have been listening to a U.S. Celtic quartet ‘Cherish the Ladies’ ~ wonderful CD with guests various. Sound sample here – you need to scroll down to Track Listing. Number 4 is of Kate Rusby singing ‘Bogie’s Bonnie Belle’ ~ another favourite song of mine – for me the most touching of all the Scottish Bothy ballads.
A traditional Scottish folk singer and songwriter l enjoy listening to is Dougie MacLean –a Dunkeld based singer. He is the composer of ‘Caledonia’ – the song that has become an anthem for Scots worldwide. The location on his music video, HERE is near to where l live – takes a wee minute to load.
Anyway this afternoon after Sam was in nursery l headed over to my Mum’s for a bit of TLC. Mum took one look at me and sent me up to bed for a rest ~ even made me some food. How come it never tastes this good when l make it? Thanks Mum.

I always thought Caledonia should be our national anthem, fantastic song. If we break away from the union of GB I would love to see the origional flag of Caledonia, a black boars head on a blue background. So am I Scottish, Caledonian, Dalriadan or Albanach???

So sorry to hear you've been under the weather again! Get better real soon now ya hear??
I listened to the little sample of Celtic music...I just loved it by the way as I always have loved anything like that...On the Dougie MaClean thing...I was not able to load the slide show for some reason but the pictures were interesting...his great-great grandfather looks an awful lot like the Scots doc I worked for in Texas...his name was McManus...loved me he did...though he would not admit it!!!

Awwwww, what are mom's for but to take care of us eh? Hope you're feeling better real soon! I loved listening to the song by Kate Rusby and I was especially interested in seeing the slideshow and listening to Dougie MacLean...how wonderful that he was able to find parts of his history!!

Do hope you're feeling better by now. Sounds nasty. Next time you'll finish the whole prescription like a good girl, right? :)
