A Hammock in the shade of a palm tree....

is where I would quite like to be right now...yes I know I just got back from Sydney and I did stop en route for a day of total 'me' time but as all you busy Mums out there know, it doesn't take long before it feels as if you have never been away!

It's been ages since I managed to update you with my news so here I am...back in the depths of the countryside and happy to be home. However, I'm not so happy that my GG has had to finish the university semester early and join me because she has been suffering (badly) from the after effects of glandular fever. It's truly debilitating and is really taking it's toll on her health. It was wonderful spending a few weeks in Sydney and having the opportunity to see her perform brilliantly well in the College play but I don't really know how she managed it - the effects of glandular are well documented and can take literally months (with lots of TLC) to dissipate.

The recommendation from all the medics is 'take it easy' - all the rest in the world doesn't seem to be making a whole lot of difference so homeopathy here we come.....(thanks Jeanne, I think it's the only option when you're exhausted from all the Doctor's visits)

Any suggestions gladly received! Meanwhile, I shall continue to languish in my imaginary hammock whilst running up and down three flights of stairs with quantities of vitamins, bowls of fruit and juice and hope for a speedy recovery! Hope all is well with all of you - I have been checking in to see what you've all been up to - apologies for the lack of news from the M.H - will try to do better!
