In hiding

That is where I intend to be for the rest of the day, and the weekend to come. I'm feeling totally and utterly crap. It started on Tuesday night with an earache and severe nausea. Then I felt a bit better on Wednesday, made it to work, bit achey... ended up leaving at 2.30pm. Worked at home yesterday feeling crap. Dragged my arse out to see the Wailin' Jennys (who kicked acoustic, three part harmony arse) and realised that my muscles hurt so much that I couldn't lift my arms above my waist. Woke up feeling not so bad and so headed into work. Now feel like crap warmed up but don't feel able to bail just yet. Damn these pesky viruses - who can I blame for inventing them? (no MM.... we don't want another God related rant just yet.... bide your time)

Husband is away up north this weekend to babysit his 3 cousins while his sis takes Mum-in-law and her sisters out to a concert. 250miles seems a long way to drive to be a babysitter but none of the family who live 5mins away seemed willing to step in (grump). Although I'll miss husband, I'm actually quite happy to have two days and night pretty much just me and the cats. I've just been to Boots to buy some pampering equipment, Capturing the Friedmans should have arrived from Amazon on rental (not comfort viewing but a film then Husband would never want to watch), the cupboards are well stocked, the cats need grooming, and I just want to sit somewhere being grumpy with no-one to be accountable to.

Hope you have a good, grumpy weekend my dear. And come out the other side with much less of the aches and pains. We just ask that you post pics of newly groomed cats at some point! (And well done Husband for being so generous!)
