third time this year

it's the third time this year i've been sick and this time it's a doozy.  it's laid me low but i think i'm getting better, albeit, very slowly.  it's an infection.  i am blaming the flu/pneumonia injections that i had when i finished work.  my doctor talked me into them.  it probably has nothing to do with it but i think it has.  maybe not, who knows.  i've had very little sleep for the past two days, i was still awake both nights at 3.30am.  the night before that i had the best sleep ever.  all night.  i wish i knew how i did it.  :)  i've started the antibiotics and hopefully, fingers crossed, i start to recover soon.  my son had to take me to the shops today as i am too weak to drive.  i went out by myself on saturday and nearly passed out.  got home just in time.  oh well, onward and upward.  i have to get better by thursday coz Liz is arriving and i have to pick her up from the airport.  we have activities planned.  eating, drinking and catching up with friends.  and maybe shopping.  knowing Liz as i do i know we will be shopping.  she promised me she wouldn't wear me out this time but she got extra baggage allowance going home.  oh dear, i'm worried.  :)

a music festival and a sleepover

cookie slept over last night.  I went up to my daughter's house yesterday and spent some time feeding and cuddling caiden.  he loves his meals.  he sort of has a tooth through but not really.  lazy baby, is very slow at getting his teeth. he's adorable. daughter cooked a lamb roast which I don't have very often. I can't remember the last time I had one.  it was nice.  cookie came back with me and we had a honey and macadamia icecream for dessert. wow.  very nice.  and moorish.  today we went down to semaphore with my friend carol for the music festival.  we shopped and visited the library too.  it was nice to see angelos who I don't get to see much these days.  he works some sundays at my library.  he's a sweetie.  he's been one of our casual staff for many years. so we shopped, ate and shopped a bit more before I took cookie home.  it's been a long day and i'm tired even though I slept in this morning.  the internet problems were solved the other day but Friday night when I got home my telephone had a terrible noise on it.  I fiddled with it for a while and changed things around and it's much better now although the internet was extremely slow last night with cookie and me on our laptops.  the telstra pit just near the letterbox was being worked on and a sign saying asbestos removal was evident with men all over the place with full body suits on the other day.  nice of them to tell us.  they say they are working on the broadband government roll out thingy.  I don't know.  I hope it sorts itself out soon coz i'm over it.
