    Some of you may be wondering where I've been for the last few days. Well....I was knocked off my feet by a dreadful dose of stomach 'flu. I'm feeeling slightly better today and certainly don't want to have to go through that again. :rolleyes: I thought I could just keep to my usual routine and it would pass - wrong. It's the first time in years I've been floored by an illness. :(

    Yikes Eils, nothing like a stomach bug to knock you off your feet and zap all of your energy. Do rest and get well soon!

    Find who ever gave you that bug and give it back to them. :eek: As my oldest daughter used to say when she had a stomach bug...'I don't want to throw up, it makes me sick to my stomach'. I know it doesn't make much sense but she was only about 3 when she started saying it ;)

    Glad you are starting to feel better, hope everything is back to normal soon.

    Eeeek. I hope you are still taking it easy young lady. After mum was ill last year, I remember that even though she felt okay, she tired very easily and it would then take her ages to regain her strength again. Bleaugh - nothing worse than a rotten tummy, poor you. Glad you are on the mend, but take it easy!! xxxx

    Well I didn't listen to advice and decided I was well enough to wash all the floors. :rolleyes: Bad mistake!! I'm totally exhausted and am heading off to bed now (3 hours earlier than my usual time) to try and sleep through the pains in my stomach. Thanks for all your wishes and I WIll take it easy from now on. :-D

    Wow...sorry to hear about that, Eileen.
    I hope that all is a little better now.
    Watch out what you eat.
    You take care now, because "the Season" is coming.

    Stomache flu's are no fun at all! I am very glad you are back up, and running. Just go slow, you don't want to fall back to that again. Glad you feel better tho, just take care.
