Sick of being sick




A whole week so far have enforced sitting down or at best hobbling. Have a really painful knee infection and now I am feeling a bit better in myself (raging temperature down) I am going stir crazy.Taking my first sick day ever next week as I cannot move around easily..so at least my students get a break.Managing to do a little hand stitch and use the netbook now and again but cannot get on with any projects or serious paperwork.


Not least of all, it was half term so had planned to see a couple of exhibitions and meet with a good friend to celebrate her 50th birthday, could not even attend Cuttings exhibition, Thanks to Anne for holding the fort on this one.



Still, small compensations:



first time I have days of stillness for a long time


managed to sit for the first time on the bench in the garden and have a good cuppa and share my toast with a bird


Finding some good old films on the tv


enjoying a bit of hand stitch

good excuse not to do the housework!


Hopefully there will be improvement in the next week or so
