More sickness

Honestly, I'm not usually this sickly a person.

As previously stated, I was very busy at the end of last week and over the weekend, driving to Ikea, building furniture, and Getting Stuff Done.

I let the blog lapse, which was stupid, because it then turned into a big deal in my head and I nearly gave up on the whole thing.

On Sunday, we had visitors, which was lovely but wore me out a bit.

Yesterday, I woke up feeling like my throat was about to explode. It turns out I have tonsillitis, and boy I had forgotten what it's like to feel like this. Every inch of my body aches, all the time. It hurts to swallow, to breathe, to eat, to drink. My head throbs, I can't see straight, and all I want to do is sleep.

Apparently, the bad pain should only last 48 hours, which means I should wake up tomorrow morning feeling better.

Fingers crossed that's the case, because I can't take much more of this. Poor Jamie had to stay home from work again today to look after J-cub, as there was no chance of me being able to lift him or do anything responsible.

So the upshot is that I didn't do a list item yesterday or today, which is really disappointing as today is Day 50. I had hoped to have caught up with those days I'd missed, and to be ready for the second half. But there was no chance of me doing anything yesterday - I started to update the blog and managed to upload one picture before I gave up (which might explain why a couple of list items are posted in the wrong order - sorry about that).

I have struggled through updating it today, there's still more I wanted to say but it'll have to wait for another day.

Lovely Nurse Rachel is coming to stay tomorrow, so hopefully having an extra pair of hands will help me get better, and maybe even get me back on track.

Hope everyone else is doing better than I am. I'm feeling pretty rubbish about myself at the moment.

Hey! Enough wallowing! I think you're doing brilliantly! You're certainly inspiring me to get on with all those tasks I need to do - every time I have to do some sorting/cleaning/babyproofing/filing I think of your blog and then I actually get on with it :-) Hope you feel better soon!

I'm sorry you've been feeling so crap, hope it's eased up. And very glad you didn't give up on the blog.
