Uuurrrrrrgh

And as if to prove my point (see previous post) I have fallen prey to the same dreaded lurgy Ava has. I'm coughing like an old smoker and have such a blocked head that I sound like that Janet Ellis who used to be on Blue Peter (she says, placing her formative years firmly in the eighties!) This week I've been up against a few deadlines, the most important of which was this morning, and yesterday I had to present our digital strategy to our main board. It's funny how the body just keeps going and going until these hurdles are overcome. Then, as the adrenalin packs up, the old bod collapses. I always used to get ill and take to my bed for a week at the end of term or after exams at university, which was the same thing, I suppose. Of course, in those days I'd simply refuse to get up until I felt better. Today, it's a bit different. I'm off to bed now, but you can bet your bottom dollar it won't be for long.....

Oh help. I just read the article you pointed me to. I hope I'm not stressed about relaxing! I think it's more that when I do finally relax my body takes this as its cue to shut down!!

I always get the flu at the end of every term when we go on (much anticipated and longed for) holidays!

There is nothing to beat the misery of everyone else having fun outside while you huddle in bed pepped up on Lemsip.

Hope you and Ava are feeling better now!
