On The Road To Recovery At Last - Normal Service Will Resume Soon

I can't believe I've been sick for so long; for more than two weeks I've had some kind of virus, which just would not let go of me. I know I'm great company but really, enough is enough...be off with you! No really...look, there's the door...sod off...it's over between us!

I want to be out running, not running a temperature. I had to miss my first-ever race on Saturday...I wasn't best pleased, especially as I wasn't even well enough to drag my sorry carcass to the sidelines to cheer my teamsters on. On the plus side, it was fantastic to hear that they ran faster than ever before...probably because they didn't have to keep pace with me. And by pace, I do in fact mean shamble!

Anyway, I had Swine Flu earlier this year and apparently it can take ages for the body to fully recover, and of course, while it is doing so, I'm vulnerable. Whether this has had any bearing on how sick I've been, I have no idea...but it's a distinct possibility.

Cute little thing though, isn't he? He's from Giant Microbes.


So, after two weeks of not being able to keep much food down, and very little sleep (I didn't know it was humanly possible to survive on so little food and sleep), today I feel that I may actually be getting better. I was able to not only stand for more that 10 minutes without feeling faint, but even managed to out for a half hour walk around the park...and came home with earache! Ho hum. Still, things are on the up....which is just as well because I now have a week of meetings and events to attend. And have to find time to catch up all the work I didn't do when I was on death's door.

I shall resume normal posting ASAP.

Thanks Susan! I'm looking forward to the weekend when I can just chill out - I'm utterly exhausted at the moment!
