What has happened over the past month? Linda came back from Melbourne with a monster of a cold, and I think is just now getting over it. It took a couple of weeks but she gave it to me as well. This would have to be the worst I have had due to an extremely bad ear infection that came with it. I haven’t been able to hear for the past couple of weeks, and that in itself makes things seem a lot worse than they actually are. No proper balance first thing in the morning until I fully get my bearings is not a nice feeling at all. I have been on meds for the last week or so and things are starting to improve. My hearing is still not one hundred per cent and that still makes me feel somewhat ill, even though I am sure I am almost fully recovered. I have called a halt on doing much or going anywhere for the past couple of weeks so I could fully recover without going out in the cold weather we are having of late. We haven’t even visited K&A for a while, she is not well either though. I even missed a day at the museum, first for a while, it actually made me feel a little guilty, like taking a sickie or something.

We had planned to go away in the van for the past week, but originally it was the school holidays with filled caravan parks that put us off, but now it turns out it would not have been a good idea to go anyway, with my illness. It has been a bit different finding things to do around the house, or just simply doing nothing for a while, but it was somewhat enjoyable. I actually found some time to try to put together another presentation for the computer club, which reminds me I do have another couple to look at.
