a short post

I thought I had better come and post, seeing as it is a few days since my last post...thankyou to each of you who have emailed me or left a comment here. I promise I will get back to each of you as soon as I can and I will be around to visit blogs sometime this week coming. Also thankyou to those who nominated me for the kind award xoxo

I think I have passed the worst of this 'viral' thing that I have. We went out to dinner on Thursday night for Sophie's 18th birthday but I was a little out of it so didn't have alot of fun. I was doped up on tablets - not something I do very often but it was a necessity to get me through the night. Friday saw me delirious and I could hardly get my head of the pillow. I was shivering one minute, the next cold sweats. I felt dreadful. There is a deadly flu going around here at the moment but this is just a head cold.. it hasn't gone to my chest. I don't feel 100% but I feel much better than I did last week. It will take me a little time to build myself up, I guess, due to the stress of all that is going on and just snatching food & rest when I can.

I had to go and see my mum on Saturday night - the last visit before she goes into have her op on Monday morning. Joe went and bought me some face masks so that I could sit near and hold her hand.. it was awful not being able to give her a kiss but at least I was there for awhile.

So early tomorrow morning (Monday), I will make the journey to see mum off to theatre.. I will wait until she comes out and then I will come home... and take it from there.

*~* I hope your day is filled with butterflies, magick, colour & fripperies! ~*~

Robyn, s glad to hear you're feeling a little better. The flu is a nasty thing to get over! I had it right before Christmas and it took a couple of weeks afterwards before I felt normal.

glad your feeling a wee better now.
I don't like going or try to least look little Intelligent when I'm dope up on cold medicine. I wonder if they think I'm some kind of space case.

Wishes your mum the best during her op and the rest of the family.

Hello,Robyn, lovely to meet you. I have flown over from Canada, from Sheila's blog, As Time Goes By. I see you have been nominated for the Nice Matters award, as I have too.

I'm sorry to read of your dear mum's operation. I will pray for both her and you :)
