January 2016

January has come & gone.
I started the 3rd year of my Q&A book, spent time with the cats, worked really hard to finish my hexagon blanket (the deadline was the end of January - Fail!) remembered Holocaust memorial day, celebrated success in the shop with a night out with the team & shared old photo's for #waybackwhen 

One week into February & what a rubbish start........ on the 1st I struggled through the day feeling pretty rubbish but couldn't say why. When I finally got home I took a turn for the worse & by 9pm I was thinking of calling my sister to take me to hospital. I've never felt so ill..... sickness, shaking, dizzy & sweating...... not nice.
After a trip to the doctors on Tuesday morning it turned out I had a bad case of flu. 
I've never had flu before & I certainly don't want it again!

So a week in bed was on the cards....... I hate calling in sick, I haven't been off for over 2 years, but I didn't have a choice. I was as weak as a kitten & felt sick every time I though about food...... I really was ill!
The good news is I lost 1/2 in a week, perfect timing as I'm having a scan on Wednesday for Gallstones & I was told I should lose weight before.
There's always a positive side!

Back to work tomorrow, hope I have enough energy to make it through the day.


  1. Sorry to hear you've been unwell, nothing worse than the flu.

  2. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Flu is one of those things you tend to think nothing of until you get it! Only thing that has ever made my DH take to his bed, nasty! Just take it easy for a day or two though, it takes time to really recover. X
