As a Smiths fan I could not resist the title Still Ill for this blog post.
Yes you guessed it, I still haven't managed to get over this horrendous flu type thing that I've now been fighting off since the end of September. I had to call the doctor to the house at one point as I didn't feel well enough to get dressed and get in a taxi to go to the surgery. He confirmed my worst fears - it was flu. That was 2 weeks ago and I'm still croaky voiced and now have sinusitis and a chesty cough.
I've been planning to do a giveaway for weeks and haven't had the energy to arrange it yet - hopefully it will be announced over the weekend. I haven't even been able to do much knitting or spinning as my eyes hurt and I get stabbing pains in my face when I look down. It has also aggravated my fibromyalgia pain over my hips, shoulders and back so getting comfortable is very difficult.
There have been a couple of good moments through all of this though - as many of you will know I often spend quite a lot of time on Twitter and as a result of my tweeting about not feeling well the lovely people at Interflora sent me these lovely flowers to cheer me up :)
Then a few days later a lovely customer and friend Amanda, otherwise known as @knittingmummy, sent me a lovely project bag as a surprise gift as she knew I'd been feeling really fed up. It really made my day :)
