Where's Wally

It seems like only yesterday I was calling out to all and sundry about how my family were finally breaking free of the dreaded winter lurgy's and bursting forth into a healthy spring. I forgot to touch wood and throw salt over my shoulder.

I've been ill...again. I won't go into details but it's been enough to stop me focusing on anything other than sleeping and watching the occasional bit of TV.

I am marginally better today and hope to get some reading done. I don't think I'll be able to sit at the keyboard long enough to get any real writing done.

I didn't post a WIP Wednesday yesterday as there has been nothing to report. I'm in the home stretch and I've suddenly hit a week where I accomplished zero words - even though I know what happens, how it happens, who is involved, the sub plot intervention - everything! And I still wrote zero words. I know I've been ill for most of that time but still - nothing?!

Time to go get back into bed and cuddle up to a couple of books. My Google reader has exploded out to 129 unread posts so I'm sure some of you have great news to share, but I just can't wade through everything at the moment, so I extend to you my best wishes and my hearty congratulations (and my apology which will be issued as I no doubt get to the announcements belatedly).


  1. Just take it easy for a while and let your body rest. We know that you're out there in spirit.

  2. You guys are really copping it. Maybe you should all pack up and take a vacation in a warmer climate. I know, I know, if only you could.

  3. Sometimes you just have to shut down comepletely before climbing back out again. Don't worry, we'll wait for you! :)

  4. Oh my, you still haven't seen my new profile picture have you? Perhaps you should wait until you've recovered your strength.

  5. Thanks, guys and girls. The end must be in sight (touch wood and throws salt over the shoulder).

    Nat - you are a twisted young lady. I wouldn't want you any other way :c)

  6. You need more sleep. Or more tea. Or both.

    There is always the tobasco sauce in the chicken soup cure... o_O

    hehehe Hope today's email made ya feel a wee bit better. *hugs*

  7. lay in bed, drink your medicine and kick this things ass, whatever it is. Hope you get to feeling better soon and I hope the rest of the family doesn't get it.

  8. Jodi - Lots more sleep helped but not as much as the email.

    Jamie - Little one was sniffing again this morning. I'm considering quarantining the whole house for a couple of weeks...
