Flashing lights with my name
.... so much for my promise to myself to be a better LJer.

I have spent the last 10 days fighting against a chest infection, and still keeping working.  So that meant down-time was snooze time!  However last Friday, as the day progressed I realised my brian was getting as fuzzy as my breathing, so I called it quits.  I had acyually worked a full week, something I hadn't done for a long time.  So good to see that I kept going!

Anyway, Sat and Sun in bed ... and then Mon, and some of today.  Yes I decided to cancel 2 days of work and go back tomorrow.

At present I am doing a few extra shifts to cover the receptionist, and the hope is that I can find the balance between extra work (and pay) and "Deborah & Jiffy" time.  However it has been good to know that despite the bugs I was able to work longer hours than I have been able to do since I was first diagnosed with the CFS.

This part of Exeter didn't really get snow, although I still took phone calls from a couple who cancelled apts, despite living locally (that is doubly annoying) ... although I suppose it's better than just not turning up, which is what a lot of people do.

So nothing else really to report ... although I have done another jigsaw.  This is of 100 films - yes I managed to work out most of them, but not all

I still have to finish the Snowflake Challenge, but think I will leave that until I am more human again.

Hope you are all keeping well - group hugs

Thank you - the days in bed have really helped me feel a lot better

You've been doing some fabulous puzzles lately. I'm glad you're feeling better after that chest infection, the weekend and a couple of extra days will have done you good. But also good to see that you've felt able to do a full week at work - and that you're remembering that you do need 'me (and Jiffy)' time.

*Hugs you back*

It has been fun to get the jigsaws out ... and done. Mum used to always have a jigsaw on the go, and I had lost the regular habit.

Yes, I am glad I took the days and feel so much better for doing so. Hard when you know the dept is short-staffed already.

*hugs* you

The important thing is to take care of yourself. Feel better!

I try to be a good girl - but the trouble is that I feel guilty about letting others down

I think being super sick and finishing an epic puzzle are acceptable reasons for forgetting to post. Hope you feel back to normal soon!

Thanks - although for me a jigsaw is a great way to relax

Sorry you are under the weather. Take care of yourself!

Thanks - I am slowly feeling better, although being back at work today was tough going

I hope you're feeling much better now!

Guess we've all let our personal lives/issues keep us away from LJ. I'm returning to a lot of sad news about my fandom friends. I'm glad you're staying strong in spirit despite your CFS diagnosis. Take care of yourself above all else! No one else can do a better job of it. *gentle hugs*

I have been ill since this Christmas, and have had "bed rest", but was lucky that I had my lap-top repaired so have actually had some LJ time this year ... will hope to continue once I am fully back on my feet and back at work.

Hope you are able to keep going with LJ - and yes, there has been some sad news around LJ over the last year or so on my LJ list as well
