Not quite normal, not even for me, yet.


Thank you, everyone, for the lovely messages and emails =)

Seems I have had a bad head cold with an upset tummy. Bleagh. No joking; at one point my poo was orange. ORANGE. That's just not normal, is it? At times like that I'd love to be a doctor, the type that works in a lab and knows about stuff like what turns your poo odd colours. Weird.

I've been up and about since Wednesday night and I went out today for the first time in at least a week. Nearly attempted this yesterday but was too dizzy.

Thought I was doing well till I realised, on the way home, that I was sans one umbrella. Oops. I had left the house with it. I had used it. I definitely had it in town because I got sworn at when it nearly took someone's eye out ("I'm sorry, but look where you're going, you stupid horse!" I thought, then wondered why on earth I had called her a horse of all things.) I only noticed that I'd lost it when I saw some for sale in a shop window. No, even the rain falling on my head wasn't a clue. Oh dear. Perhaps I better keep taking the bunged-up-head pills for a little longer.

Hmm... orange... have you been feeding on curry?

Hope you feel better soon, and the right color returns. Hugs.

Well, orange is the colour for Halloween, I suppose, pumpkins, autumn leaves and now poo! Congratulations Helena! I'm impressed! :o)

Oh dear Helena! It sounds as if you have had the flu! The flu makes a cold seem like a walk in the park. Colds usually don't cause tummy troubles, but the flu causes all the cold symptoms along with tummy issues. :(
I hope your asthma isn't bothering you badly. Poor girl! (((Big Hugs!)))
Have some tea and something delicious to eat if your stomach can have it and rest with some silly shows on your telly.
Take care sweetie.
Hugs,
Lorianna

Hope you didn't have that swine flu but then, if you did, you now have some immunity for the next time it comes 'round. That's funny but not funny about the umbrella. Funny because I do that sort of thing a lot. Not funny because you would rather not be losing things and hopefully not your mind - that's how I always think when I do these things.

Perhaps you had the H1N1. I am glad to know you are okay.
