Apologies

I just want to apologise to all who keep popping in to read any new postings. And there haven't been many at all. What there have been are invariably made up of whinges and a crosspatch moaning. I am sorry but this virus has been a bit of a b*****r to shake off. And being at home so much means I've been listening to the radio or watching TV news; surrounded by doom, gloom and the economy.
Many people are beginning to call it 'flu'. I don't know if this is flu or not. If it's a flu virus then I've got off lightly. But whatever it is it's taken a long time to clear and is still affecting my energy levels. I've only done a little bit of blogging here and there. I've popped in on blogging friends to cheer myself over the last few weeks. I've certainly hardly been out anywhere and feel as if I'm 'stir crazy' sometimes. I go to the chemist each week for essential supplies but otherwise have resorted to Internet grocery shopping to save energy.
My group of friends also have had the virus. 2 of them a month before I started it. 2 others a couple of weeks later. We keep comparing symptoms to see how long before we feel 'back to normal'. From a telephone conversation with a friend who yesterday claimed to be fully recovered I reckon I may have a couple more weeks to go.We keep on talking about arranging a get together. We've cancelled 3 lunch/dinner parties - so far. We just keep on talking about what we'll do when we all feel better.

Oh, we are so close! Hang in there, LT! Spring (and it's associated weather) is just around the corner! Hopefully the mere presence of extra sun will chase away these germs and gloom. Hope you are back to yourself soon. Hugs.

Henry - i hope you enjoy your holiday here. Thanks for your kind thoughts WW, Casdok & Teeni.

i must be on the mend. I've been clearing a 4 week layer of dust from all rooms - it is far too cold/wet/windy to garden.

Our whole family had that virus, it lasted two weeks from start to finish. Bloody awful.
