.... I think I am back on the track to wellness.


I've had a chest infection that has hung on for the last 4 weeks and I found it exhausting. I've never been so lack lustre ever. I've had so many nights where I am in bed by 7pm. And if you know me well, that's so very hard to imagine. I'm normally a midnight oil burner, every night.

I was nearly over it and then succumbed to it again - 3 times. Antibiotics took their sweet time to shift it, but eventually they did.

Annie went to hospital for a short spell with it until her temp dropped and she had 2 rounds of it. As did Sean. Both of them had numerous days off school. Kym managed to only be slightly affected by it. He's been pretty good with it all, and when the kids have been up during the night due to coughing, unwellness or temps, he's been there for them. My shift was the day shift, which was a bit of a trick when I felt really crappy in myself.

I've found concentration difficult. I just couldn't focus on the effort of scrapping, or even feel motivated to find an hour free from the kids to go take a landscape photo. Boy I must have been low.

I've missed 5 fitness sessions, Camera Club, a scrap night, and a few other little things. Not a lot in the overall scheme of things, but it still bothers me.

I'm still working on the energy levels. A large day and I'm totally stuffed and I'll be in bed very early. I've read 6 books in the last 4 weeks as I've been inside so much.

Today was the first day of feeling a bit like my old self. And I hope it's here to stay.
