Long time, no blog. A bout of eye-strain which was severe enough to drive me away from the computer for over a week, combined with the flu virus from hell, has left me lurking around my house feeling very miserable indeed. I finally figured out that I probably needed my vision checked and my glasses adjusted again, and have new lenses on order. The flu, however, is ongoing.
I’m tired, cross, desperately in need of some quiet time to recover (which just isn’t going to happen with a busy 4 year old in my life), and way, way behind with all the assorted stuff that needs done at this time of the year.
Wellington’s winter/spring weather has really done a number on me. The ever-present wind, the rain and humidity, the lukewarm temperatures, all make it difficult to ever feel comfortably warm, and that makes it harder to recover from a chest infection. Every time the chilly wind hits my chest and face, I feel the tightness all over again. I’m thinking of emigrating to a desert somewhere.
I’m grateful to Travis for putting up with me whining about the weather and being generally disgruntled and grumpy, and for dealing with the logistics of family life while I was lying around half-dead earlier this week. He even took over the kindy run and for the first time all year, I missed the end of session story times. Petra seemed unfazed but I was sad about it.
