On Sunday I started feeling very cold, even though the heating was on and it wasn't particularly chilly; Monday I felt ok and ventured up to the Mall at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol for a last bit of Christmas shopping and a general nosey around. Tuesday I started feeling unwell, and by Wednesday morning it was all I could do to drag myself out of bed for half an hour before collapsing back under the duvet, where I stayed until the postman woke me up knocking on the door at 1pm. After a shower, I then spent the rest of the afternoon dozing on the sofa in between swallowing various drugs while dear hubby entertained DC. Thursday was pretty much a repeat of Wednesday. Luckily by yesterday morning I was feeling brighter, although still rather worn out and with a nasty cough/sore throat. Having Googled my symptoms, I came to the conclusion that, as well as various tropical and deadly diseases, I had the flu. And it wasn't very nice. Thank goodness it really only seemed to have me hard in its grasp for about 48 hours.
So, there you have my latest excuse for being a dreadful blogger at the moment; what with the photo-uploading issues, I really haven't done very well this month and I don;t expect it will get any better over the next week or so now that Christmas and New Year are nearly upon us. So, I shall take this opportunity to wish you all a very
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
