Dipping my toe in – again

Well hello!

I didn’t mean to be away for so long. We went away on a (brief but lovely) holiday by the sea, and at the end of it I became ill. I don’t know what with – not covid symptoms, and I had a negative test – but whatever it is has hung around and laid me low.

I feel like I’m on the mend now, though this recovery seems very up and down, and I’m learning I can’t push things too fast. But I’m still experiencing lots of fatigue, and having to take things very, very gently. If I don’t then the next day I’m back down again.

[I’m also wondering whether or not I can trust the negative test result – self administered, when I was feeling very unwell. I was feeling far too nauseous to be able to follow the instructions and keep the swab on my tonsils for 10 seconds].

And now, just as I’ve come back to write again, I find that WordPress have changed everything, so I’m going to have to figure out how to do stuff all over again. Damn!

Hopefully I’ll be back with you soon. In the meantime, I hope you’re well and coping with all that life has to throw these days.

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

  1. I’m so glad you were able to have a little getaway but very sorry to hear you’ve been unwell. I’m sure the gently does it approach to recovery is the right one and hopefully you’ll be feeling much better soon. Take care.


    • Thanks so much for this. Thankfully this morning I’ve woken up feeling like my body belongs to me not an alien. Long may it last! A little walk in the woods in the autumn sunshine will be a tonic I hope. Take care yourself! Xx

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
