err.. Hi

I honestly hadn't realised how long its been since my last post until I saw Joy's comment this morning! Amazing how one day blends into the next some times...
So, all last week I was writing away madly, and by Monday I thought I had the end of the book I'm trying to write in sight. But since Friday I've been battling with the nasty cold / flu bug that's been going around, and I've been off work with it since Tuesday. I'm having trouble with my eyes, which won't stop watering, with coughing fits that wipe me out and leave me with a sore throat that feels a lot like I'm a very poor sword swallower. Plus coughing attacks in the middle of the night keeping me awake. I know its absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things and really doesn't compare to being really sick or needing surgery, but it has meant that I'm not going out and about at the moment, so I really nothing to report.
Also while feeling sorry for myself I've been eating badly again. Using fighting the bug as an excuse to not try to restrict calories. I'm genuinely frightened to get on the scales but the way my clothes fit (when I can be bothered to get out of my dressing gown) tells the story just as well.
I will try to post more regularly, please do feel free to kick me if I forget again!


  1. LOL! I'm really sorry that you've been unwell - there's some horrible bugs going around at the moment and personally I think you're right not to put yourself under too much pressure.
    Take care
