I think it will be while before running is on the menu.
It has been a long and bumpy ride, the viral infection was a doozy, mind you I don't miss the 15 or so kilo that melted away.
I had a few goodish bits along the way but physically and mentally I was a train wreck for quite a while.
I am never ill.
I don't do ill.
Well, never say never.
My poor sewing room looks dusty and neglected. My friends also, well not dusty, just neglected.
I have ventured in to tidy a bit, some simple sewing has been attempted. It wasn't too unsightly, but far from wonderful.
I have been taking some short walks with the dogs, weather permitting, but the garden is a bit wild and woolly. It will keep.
I had a bit of a boost a couple of weeks ago. I opened the door to find a basket of home made and grown goodies with a lovely card.
It was from Jess, Buy less, Live Slow. It gave me a boost and a few days later I was able to go for a short visit. Her girls are delightful and it was a tonic.
I hope to be back here frequently soon, but the habit needs feeding slowly. I am unused to forming my thoughts into prose but it will come.
I want to thank all of you for the messages, Michael did reply to some. It would have been all but the laptop finally gave up the ghost with a good impersonation of Monty Python's Parrot.
I now have a nice new one to play me up.
So glad to see you back! I have missed your blog.ReplyDelete
