Sorry to report that I’m still suffering with the flu I didn’t mention I had.
I came down with the Australian version of the lurgy a couple of weeks ago and I’ve gone steadily downhill since. Strangely even before it arrived I knew it was on the way.
Over the many years of my life I’ve discovered that whenever I feel really well and suddenly get really ‘workish’ it is in fact a precursor to a total physical collapse! It’s happened too many times to be a coincidence and I’ve started taking notice of it.
Perhaps my body is doing a form of ‘nesting’ so that I feel I *can* collapse because the house is clean and tidy so I don’t feel so guilty about it… who knows. One thing tho is that now I am aware enough to make sure I have supplies of medicines and snack type foods around to make sure I don’t have to venture far until it all blows over and I recover.
This time, for some reason, the kids actually helped out a bit as well instead of leaving me to battle on with it. Also the wife has done sterling duty keeping everything working as it should in the house.
My head still hurts and the throat feels like someone is scouring it with sandpaper, but this is actually an improvement! At least my sinuses don’t feel as if they’re about to explode. 🙂
I’ll be back sooner or later of course… but right now please accept my apologies for the lack of updates etc. I’ll be back, but maybe not ‘in force’ for a few more days yet.
