Damn You Bug From Hell

I’m sick again 😦

Its the same bug from a few weeks ago as I had not gone away completely and now its back and kicking my butt . . again . . . worse than last time.

I have sneezed so much in the past week that my nose is peeling and I have gone through about 4 boxes of tissues.  I think I am my own version of the Walking Dead.

I had yesterday off work because of this nasty little bugger.  I eventually go out of bed around 11am thinking I would go to the couch and stitch or knit or something.  I made it to the couch and lay down again.  That was the total limit of my exertion level.  Please bear in mind that I am a woman in my mid 40’s.  We do not stop for illness and we certainly don’t lie down for it.  When my husband asked me what we were doing for the coming weekend I told him he was busy because my funeral would be a bit time consuming event and require his attendance.

I feel better today 🙂 Not fantastic but better.  Its Friday so that helps 😀

So my plan is to finish work early by telling my boss that I am fairly sure I am an Ebola victim as my reasoning and to scoot through to Spotlight where I will lighten their stock levels considerably.  From there I shall venture to my home cave and snuggle in for the weekend.  I fully intend not to leave the home cave again until Monday morning when I will be forced back into the real world to once again earn the currency that allows me to purchase more craft supplies.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone xxxx



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
