Marking Time

I haven't posted much that's personal of late, because in truth I've been kind of flat. 2 months plus and I'm still struggling with a chest infection. It got much better and I had 4 blissful almost cough-free days before catching a head cold last Friday... and now it seems I'm back where I started. Frankly it's exhausting, frustrating and somewhat depressing.

I've been cancelling most social engagements in favour of staying home, my house has been unloved (and largely uncleaned, ugh) for ages, I've been tired from waking up all through the night coughing and... well, blah. I feel like all I need to do is get rid of this chest infection and I'll have some normalcy again. So while it's cold and Wintery outside I'm staying in, and consequently I do think it has improved a little in the past day or so. I'm kind of sick of the whole hermit scenario though, and I have a small outing with my friend Judy planned for tomorrow night (and indie designer's market!) but aside from that it's a clean social slate.

On the upside, haircut this weekend! That's always a booster for the psyche, not just the hair.

You're definitely doing the right thing. Yoda had a cough for 5 months last year and now he has it back again. These things just seem to take forever to go away and they wait until your body is feeling a bit weak and BANG! they kick you right in the rubber parts all over again.

Health should be your top priority. None of us are 21 anymore. And now that I've turned 29, I have to spend more time looking after myself.

nothing like a new frock to brighten up the day.
or if you are not a 'frock person' a good hair cut will do.
I hope it cheers you up.

I'm sorry you still feel unwell. Hopefully full recovery is not too far off.
