Feeling much better

Thankyou all for your get well messages.

I have survived! It is a nasty bug though. Seems like lots of our blogging friends have caught it too! Hope you are all feeling better soon.

Yes, I have finished the pink jumper and I am half way through a dark charcoal grey (different pattern) jumper. Not much housework being done and no exercise. I am hoping to feel well enough in the morning to do some jogging on my tramp.







Had a surprise phone call today from the VERY busy Specialist Surgery where I worked a couple of years ago. The girl who replaced me when I "retired" is leaving and they are in a spot of bother, so they have asked me if I could go back and do some medical typing until they find a replacement and train her. The hours are up to me, whatever I can spare. I told them I would go two days a week, so I will mind my darling grand-daughter two days, work two days and have Fridays to do my own thing. OMG, that will be a shock to the system for a while! I can wear jeans, as I will be away from the public eye, so that is a blessing! I didn't want to buy new office clothes.

OMG, less time for blogging. How will I cope????

Glad to see you are feeling better. Great about the job and not having to go out and buy office clothes!

You can buy other clothes instead!

So glad to hear you are feeling better! Wow you are a fast knitter! :-) And the work thing sounds very good - will be nice to get a bit of extra cash too? I've been looking at trying to get some medical typing I can do from home, as that would be ideal for me!!

What a fantastic opportunity. I can see already that you will LOVE it. Something to occupy the mind will give you even more pleasure from blogging when you are able to fit it in. And it will give you lots of different things to write about too :D

And whooo hooo for working in jeans. And if you need more office clothes you can always knit yourself a suit LOL.

Have a great day Suzy

More importantly - what will you spend the extra dosh on?

What a great opportunity to earn a little pocket money to spend on new clothes (not for work of course !!) I am sure you will have a good time too.
Am glad you are feeling better - there seems to be so much of this bug going around - we really shouldn't be so friendly and share it with each other like this !!!!
Take care and have a great week !

Aren't you going to be a busy bee?!! Still a little extra pocket money to buy more yourself sometime special, maybe? Glad you are feeling better, sounds like it was a nasty bug, ick. Take it easy with the exercise, ease back into it slowly :)

I'm glad you were able to fit work into your very busy life and its great that you can work to suit yourself. They must secretly miss you. Think of the extra money to spend. So happy you are feeling better. It all sounded really nasty and hope that it bypasses me this year. Keep on blogging please.

Glad to hear that you're feeling better. I used to do medical typing too, a long time ago though. You're really going great guns with the knitting, I can't believe you're on your third jumper! Would love to see a photo of the pink one.
