Itching to Get Started…

The place is a mess.

Laundry needs done.

I need to clean the whole house.

The Christmas decorations need put away.

There is so much to do.

Right now though, I’m stuck.

I’ve been ill with the flu since Boxing Day, and since that’s gone, I’ve been dealing with effing pleurisy instead.

So long as I do practically nothing that requires me to breathe any way other than a regular Not-Deep breath, I’m fine.

Anything that makes me need to breathe deeply (like, you know, going up stairs *sigh*) and it hurts.

It’s driving me crazy!!

I want to tidy and clean.

I want to bake cookies and tidy away the Christmas decs and go to the shops for groceries.

However, for the next few days. Until Zack and Max go back to school and nursery on Thursday, I’m just going to carry on with the bare minimum.

Oh well… at least from here, the only way is up!

    Sorry to hear you’re ill Marilyn. Hope you are feeling better soon. It’s hard being a Mummy when you’re ill, feels like you’re failing – I think it’s just something built in us. Just concentrate on resting up and you’ll be cleaning and baking in no time x

    So sorry you’ve been poorly M. I do hope you feel better soon. Remember these things take time!! Hubby has been poorly over New Year & I don’t know if I’m coming down with the same or just exhausted from looking after him but I need to find my mojo too!

    eek, just make sure you get better rather than wearing yourself out *goes into bossy mode*

    Yes mum! 😛 Don’t worry… I’ve been being very lazy. >_<

    Rest, rest, rest. That’s the quickest way to get better – honest! I should know, I’ve been ill all holiday and ignoring it. Guess what? I still feel rubbish. Bah.

    Anyway, get those boys back to school/pre-school and then get yourself some more rest. Then you’ll be able to sort out all the housework.

    Thanks sweety, that’s the idea! Hoping by the time the boys go back on Thursday I’ll be feeling better. 🙂
