Flat Out...


for all the wrong reasons. I've managed to pick up a virus of some kind, which has laid me very low (in bed) for the past week or so. I've given up struggling, and this is the only thing I'm doing today, just to see if I can. All I want for Christmas is... a virus free body. Not as bad as one of my friends, though, who had to go through a knee operation without visitors, as the Norwich hospital has been closed to visitors because of Winter Vomiting Virus. He's at home now, though, and having care lavished upon him... we have some care to lavish on him ourselves, but I'm staying away until I'm sure that I'm no longer infectious.

Work has ceased completely, which is a pest. I just got the creativity book straight in my head, at last, and was ready to finish it this week... but I'm really not thinking straight enough for that. The house looks like a bomb has hit it, and I'm not sure what Robin has been eating this week...but I'm pretty sure that whatever it was, I wouldn't have approved of it. I have a lot of baking to do for Christmas, tidying and cooking, too, but that's not going to happen until I can manage to stay upright for more than half an hour at a time. We have three guests coming to stay, and I'd like to give the impression of being calm and competent, even though I'm not! Mind you, there's a limit to how far you can fool your family...

The image is of a collage I made a couple of weeks ago, see what you think. Meantime, I'm going back to bed...

Sounds like you're doing the right thing staying in bed, sometimes it's best just to listen to your body and give in. I hope you soon feel much better but don't stress over Christmas, delegate and let them pamper you instead. Take care.

I love you collage. Sorry this nasty virus has taken you down. But you need to get all the rest you can if you don't want to be sicker. Let you family give you the "gift" of helping out.....Have a great Holiday and hope you feel better soon.

Since I'm across the pond, I can't have had what you did, but I lost two days. Feel better soonest. Love the collage, the colours appeal to me very much.

I hope you're recovering Marion -I've had a bug for 3 weeks but am on the mend. Best wishes for Christmas and 2009.

I certainly hope that you feel better and that your family will understand that you do need rest.

The Art looks like a door that's ajar. It makes me wonder what is behind the door? Is it your stash of fabric? I wanna see. the colors are great. I love it! Have a Happy Holiday with your family and take it easy. Diana
