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.
