It coulda been worse

Bloggie friends! Thank you all so much for wishing me well and sending me tons of healing hugs and purrs!! Awwwww you're all stars!!

As my doctor said when he gave me my flu shot in October 2010:

“You may still get the flu or flu like symptoms but they will be worse if you don’t get vaccinated”.

Charlie says: Next door are late.



Yesterday was World Book Day!! Yay! Thanks Talli for the reminder!

Yesterday also saw the launch of the Essex Book Festival – so if you are in Essex there’s lots of writer-ly bookish things to do this March!

Finally, ze weekend is here!

Thanks lovely Kim for saying hi as I emerged from my fever!

As the doc says, it coulda been worse! :-)

Oh, Jen and I are hoping you're feeling better! I just found out that my oldest daughter, her husband, and three of her six children have spent the week weak with fever from the flu. A whole week! I can understand how elated you are for the weekend!! Take care!!!!

Good that things are better!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I had that mutant flu for three, not-fun weeks. It was surely an experience I would not wish on an enemy, much less a friend like you!

Gypsy says Charlie has her sympathies since I was such a whiner while I was sick! LOL.

May your weekend be healing, Roland
