Hello there from my sick-bed! Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I’m at Day 8 of what the doctor believes to be a horrid strain of the flu (the real flu). I have not felt this sick in a very, very long time. It is hard to believe that I got this, for a number of reasons:
- I had a flu vaccination in May. I get the flu vac every year and have done so for many years and have been flu free for all that time!
- I’m not commuting to and from the city every day on a train like I used to and I’m not working in an air-conditioned office block – both high risk at exposure to flu germs. I’m mostly at home! Very strange!
Anyway, it got me and as I’m a believer in things happening for a reason, I guess this was meant to happen for a reason. I had some thoughts on some possible reasons which I listed on Instagram yesterday afternoon but won’t go into again here.
The doc tells me that I’d be far sicker if I hadn’t had the flu vac. Considering how sick I have been, I hate to think how sick those who are unvaccinated get. I do know that many people have been hospitalised with it this year! I’ve just had a bit of bad luck this year. As I have a very dodgy immune system, I will continue to get the flu vaccination every year!
So in a moment of a lower than usual temperature (hoping it stays down and means it is on its way out? *fingers crossed*), I thought I’d try and get this post done – my first for September! To be honest, in lucid moments yesterday I put together the collages you see below, so all I’ve got to do is string a few words together and do some publishing and linky stuff.
As I’m linking up with Wordless Wednesday today – I have obviously written far too many words (lol) so will now try to limit my remaining words except to say that if any of the pictures that relate to the daily prompts don’t make sense to you, you’ll need to head to my Instagram (here) to see what I had to say which may help. You will notice a decline towards the end of the month as I got sick! 😉
As I’ve been unwell, I opted out of participating in #fmsphotoaday for September.
(NB: With the exception of the photo for Day 1, all photo’s were taken with my phone)
Ciao for now,
Linking up today with My Little Drummer Boys: Wordless Wednesday
