I'm still here........

I know I haven't been around much lately. I'm sure you all missed me desperately.

Please find herewith my absent note explaining my absence (in bullet point form as I'm terribly tired).
  • I've been sick.
  • I've been very sick.
  • I slept 20 hours out of 24 last Monday.
  • Pity I was too unwell to enjoy this rare luxury.
  • On Wednesday I was in hospital with a chest infection and suspected pneumonia.
  • Wednesday was also Charlie's 2nd birthday.
  • He had a special birthday outing to the hospital. Luckily boy.
  • I was out of hospital Wednesday afternoon. Short and sweet.
  • Which is amazing given the public health system here.
  • Charlie had a lovely birthday anyway.
  • He is now very adept at ripping wrapping paper off presents.
  • And putting it in a neat pile ready to go into the bin later.
  • By Friday I managed to go a whole day without needing a 'nanna nap' during the day.
  • Saturday my lovely in-laws arrived to spend the weekend with the birthday boy.
  • Charlie had talked about Grandma and Grandad arriving all week.
  • When he awoke from his nap to find that Grandma and Grandad had actually arrived in the flesh, Charlie was so stunned he stood staring at them speechless for a good 5 minutes.
  • He then talked non stop for the rest of the weekend.
  • Today we had a family get together for Charlie's birthday. He requested cars, toys and books.
  • His wishes were fulfilled.
  • Tonight I'm tired.
  • Tomorrow I have a week's worth of work waiting for me when I arrive in the office.
  • I think I'm tired in advance for tomorrow.

  1. Ouch, poor you, it is no wonder you have been quiet.
    I hope that this week is much better than the last and you are feeling yourself and not completely swamped by work really soon.
    Happy birthday Charlie.
