Christmas with Craziequeen

A First in 2009! Charlie left the tree alone - mostly. William got a little tempted towards the New Year, but the tree was mostly untouched...
I ended up looking for lights on Christmas Eve and found some lovely little lights dirt cheap which lasted well, easy to drape and made the tree look so pretty.

Christmas was lovely - just me and the Much Beloved with our felines had a couple of nice relaxing days. I started coughing on Boxing Day. On the 28th MB zipped off to his parents for a few days and I went to the Crazies Christmas bash at the Aginoths house. A fun evening was had by all, despite my cough and croaky voice.

Come the next day, 29th, and my virus was properly kicking off. That turned into proper flu with roaring temperature, tears and fever by the time MB returned home on New Years Eve and I went into crisis on New Years Day. It took 18 hours to break the fever and another couple of days to get rid of the temperature.

Now it's the 4th January and I am only just beginning to feel human again. One more day of my leave and it's back to work - was the break worth it??

Cor - you gotta love Christmas........!

I'm glad to hear you're on the mend... Well, hopefully you'll be feeling OK by now.

I went back to work on Monday, only I've only made it in yesterday afternoon since!

self-mediating is cool,
blogging is one way of doing it.

have energy restored...

Frick only opens everyone's presents now.
He's to old to be climbing and shaking the tree but I am sure he was disappointed with no tinsel to eat
