Today, repeat

After I shoved my naked goals for the year into the limelight for all to see, their bare knees knocking in fright, the gods of fate responded with a big boot up the arse for tempting them so blatantly.

I spent last Monday at work narking about how tired I felt to everyone unlucky to be in earwigging distance. When I wasn't whining to others I was berating myself for not getting enough writing done. At home I felt too tired and sad to do anything but watch television. Oh, how I wished I was back at home full-time again!

The next day I got my wish, albeit temporarily. I spent the next 48 hours being violently sick. The next 48 hours I was too worn out to leave the flat. I had absolutely no work to do, was too bored even to watch day-time tv, but still the words did not appear on the page.

Yesterday I went back to work with almost a spring in my step. I had a laugh with my coworkers and had a stroll in the sunshine at lunch. At home I sat down and got some writing done. Today, repeat.

Oh dear, that's why New Year's resolutions scare me! As long as my resolutions are non-NY related, I seem to do okay.
Hope you've recovered fully, and well done on getting some writing done.

Glad the spring is back in your step and you got some writing done!

Hope you're feeling better. That sounds like a nasty bout you had. It's frustrating to lose writing time to being ill.

OMG, that sounds horrible - I'm very glad you're feeling better - springy and so on.

That sounds like a ghastly bug. Glad that you're better now and the spring in your step has returned.

I am glad you are better, that sounded nasty! I know what you mean about this time of the year though! It does get you down and tire you out.

Glad you're feeling more the ticket :-)

Hope you're feeling better now :-)

Even those resolutions I've kept quietly to myself have been more or less broken!
