How frustrating

I thought I was getting better and we were desperate for food so we made a trip to Ada today for groceries. We didn't park too far from the store - only a couple of minutes walk with the trolley - but even so I was glad to reach the car. When we got home, we unpacked the shopping and I had a little tidy about while Andy went outside and chopped some trees. I was absolutely shattered and had to have a lie down. It's just starting to feel frustrating now because I really expected to be back to normal by now. I'm not the fittest person in the world normally, but I can manage a 2 minute walk without problems...usually. In other areas things have improved, like my temperature and, even though my chest still sounds crackly and I feel a bit washed out, my peak flows have been really good...normal actually (most of the time). I seem to be heading in the right direction at least...I just wish it was quicker!

I have no other news really except that my sister is now sick with a chest infection. She also has asthma and so its hitting her pretty hard too. I do hope she didn't get it from me! Please say a prayer for her too - she lives on her own, about 450 miles from me so I can't just go there to check up on her. I'm a bit worried about her as I've been hearing so many stories about the swine flu virus lately. I asked about having the swine flu jab last time I went to the doctor but was told I was too sick. I wonder if there's any point asking again when I go for my check up at the end of the month? Anyone know when the flu season is supposed to finish?

I've taken advantage of the fact that I'm pretty much confined to the house and have been busy working on a cute valentines digital scrapbooking kit. What do you think so far? I've made most of the papers, about half of the embellishments and I'm wondering about making alphas too. I love valentines day and think I'm going to use this kit to make a card for my hubby...now that I've bought a nice new printer in the sales (thanks to mum and dad).

Tut tut! Rest, rest, rest:) Do take care of yourself my dearest friend. I'm not sure the flu season does actually end so I'd just book yourself in for the jab at the end of the month just in case.

Praying for your sister. I know what it's like to be far away from your family when they are ill and could do with you for moral support, help and just cuddles!

BTW the Valentine's kit looks cute. Can't wait to play with it. I also can't wait to hear about the new printer.

Rest while you can. Your body will heal in time, but I know it can be frustrating.

I'm sure you've got all kinds of new ideas for designs!

I know how frustrating it is when you think you can do things, but your body tells you you are not ready yet. I'm still praying over you Louise. I'll add your sister to my prayer list too. Hopefully 2011 will be a better year for both of us.

PS You silly girl always working on something! :P

Thanks for all your kind words, I feel so lucky to know you guys and I appreciate your support!

I know you all think I'm a workaholic (and in some ways I am) but I also find designing relaxing and therapeutic. I'm not a TV person at all, I have to be DOING something LOL.
