I have been feeling 'off colour' for a few weeks now. This culminated with a nasty virus that has been with me for the last few days. Trying to sleep it off yesterday during the day, I noticed that the light outside the window took on a strange colour. The Linden tree was illuminated by a beautiful rainbow that branched across the sky in a perfect semi-circle. Even better - it was a double rainbow (I presume this is just a reflection of the original) and I have never witnessed this before.
For that brief moment, I felt that there was light at the end of the tunnel or even a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. All too soon the rainbow began to fade and I resumed my place on the sofa with blanket and tissue mountain.
