It was so lovely meeting all of you the other day at the tea party and the moment i left Risas place, i became sick with the flu and spent the weekend in bed with a fever!!! Well, i guess it was my turn as everyone else has it here...feeling a lot better today although still have a nasty cough!
Anyway, i spent 3 days doing nothing...except watching tv...martha, oprah, eastenders...and anything else i could find. Im not one of those people who usually takes a nap during the day - it feels like a waste of time to me and always think of something i could do...but this time i decided (apart from having no energy) to veg completely and it was nice to relax and do nothing!!!

So now i have a lot of catching up to do...

Just a little note on the fact that i put a picture of myself up...Steph said it so beautifully and honestly - i love her and feel exactly the same!!!!

hope you are all well and having a good week!

    you know, if you hadn't posted a picture of yourself i wouldn't have been brave enough to do it myself. and even then is was hard... crazy. so glad you are feeling better, i feel the same way about naps, have since they were forced upon us in kindergarten....

    Glad to hear that you're on the mend now. The only good thing about getting the flu is the veg out time, well done on embracing it fully!

    hello julie dear, so glad you're feeling a bit better and hope the last of it disappears soon. the foot photo is very cute :) i too loved steph's post about posting pictures of yourself... i think mine was take 3, at which point i would have kept going but had an appointment and realized my hair was not going to look any better in more takes, so why was i bothering? and why oh why did i care? :)

    Three days of doing nothing... they always seem to come out of the blue. All of a sudden you can go from tearing about the place at full speed to completely immobilised. Feel better soon, Julie.
    (Oh, and just secretly, I am longing for three days of lolling though without the feeling ill element).
    take care, g xo
