Business as usual? Hardly.

Hi all

I know I said I was abandoning this blog, but I figured that it was easier to post here because this is where people are reading.

Yes, I am home. No, I am not better and no, it is not business as usual. I am still in a lot of pain and still recovering.

A few people have mistakenly assumed that because I am home that I am suddenly “on” or “available” and that I can just continue where I left off. That is not the case. I still have a good month before I start to feel normal again. I can’t sit in one place for longer than about 40 minutes before I need to sit somewhere else. My head is foggy and I can’t really concentrate, and if I don’t reply on an IM, it is not because I am a bitch, it is because everyone jumps on me the second I go online.

I appreciate that people care, I really do, but I just can’t chat for long periods of time. I can’t concentrate enough to post a blog and as much as I want to, I can’t focus enough to do my Uni work or much else. So please, if I appear online, please don’t jump on me. And if I don’t reply, please don’t follow up or get pissed. Its the little things that upset me at the moment and the computer is my only source of outside world contact.

I love that everyone cares about me, but when I wake up having accidentally left Trillian on and there are 20 messages with “hello are you there” waiting for me, I am in pain, its just not a good start to my day. 🙂

So please, just be patient. Especially this week, as Jason is going back to work and I am here with the kids on my own and frankly I don’t know how I am going to cope. But, I should be fine as long as people are a bit more patient with me.

Thanks muchly 🙂

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
