It is safe to say that I will be happy to see the back of February. It has just been ‘one of those months’ so far, and now that we are about three quarters of the way through it, I have given up hope for the remaining few days.
It started off with a bout of laryngitis. I should have know there and then that the rest of the month was going to have it in for me too! Because I was ill right at the beginning of the month (my first wee back at university after Christmas) I spent the next week playing catch up on the university work that I missed. Round two of the illness arrived with severe congestion in my head that gave me an average of about two hours sleep a night for another week. This then seemed to clear up again and I was having to catch up with university work again until a horrific cough stopped me in my tracks yesterday. Fed up of the fact that I could no longer remember what it felt like to be well, I spent forever trying to get through to the doctors for an appointment. I had no luck in the morning, but I managed to get through in the afternoon to be diagnosed with sinusitis. I now have some antibiotics to get me on the mend…but they make me feel sick. Oh well, it will be worth it all in the end!
Due to three weeks of feeling rubbish then having a mad dash to catch up on missed work, I haven’t managed to work on any of the projects that I wanted to this month. It is really frustrating after having such a productive month last month, but there has really been no way around it. I am glad that I managed to complete my mother’s day present despite being ill, and a week in the sickbed did give me time to complete my February sampler so at least I am up to date with that!
Since then though, I have been trying to catch up with the work and the reading that I have got behind with, so my crafts are on hold 😦 I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I am now finally on the mend, and hopefully the end of February will also see the end of my long sick period so that I can get back on track! Roll on March!
