I'm afraid I won't be doing the usual 'blog' this week - sorry - but my 'itch' turned out to be German Measles - bliddy unbelievable at my age!

My GP told me that childhood diseases can be more serious in adults - he was right - I haven't been able to get out of bed for anything but short periods all last week, but I had to rally myself yesterday go on a very long trip with the hubba and my poor little Solomon to be seen by a specialist veterinary orthopaedic consultant as his injury turned out to be much more serious than my vet realised.

Sorry - I'm starting to ramble - I'll tell you all more when I can keep my thoughts straight, but the bottom line is, Solomon's okay but I'm not - yesterday wiped me out and I seem to have had some kind of relapse.

Have to go - I'm not supposed to be out of bed and the hubba's only popped out to get my prescription and some Lucozade - see you all soon - in the meantime, enjoy tonight's show without me!

Oh Aida, that is dreadful but accounts for your "grumpiness" last week.  My ex got German Measles and was hell to live with (more so than usual).  Our babysitter's boyfriend also ended up with it and my niece.  Turns out that my daughter was a carrier but didn't have any spots.
Pleased to hear Solomon is okay though.  So just follow orders, stay put and make the most of being waited on.

Get well soon Aida Hug

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Before you criticise someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticise them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

I had German measles as an adult and it was a pain but far worse was when I got mumps in my thirties.   Really horrid so send you all the best

Thank you - you're all so kind and I really appreciate your good wishes for me and Solomon!

He's hopping around and seems quite bright in himself, and he does keep 'testing' his paw and partially bearing weight on it, so fingers crossed he's going to regain full function!

As for me - I am improving but it isn't exactly rapid - mind you, I made matters a million times worse by being daft enough to buy some Nyquil from Boots because Friday was such a worrying, tiring day, I was worried I wouldn't sleep.

I didn't - even though I took some of the stuff, I had terrible nightmares all Friday night, and I still wasn't right yesterday. I did try to watch 'Strictly' but I kept drifting off to sleep then waking with a start and getting mixed up as to who was dancing with whom.

I sort of watched it to the point when the old Diet Liar and Comrade Teethski, stripped to the left garter, were on. After prancing around a bit with a face like a smacked bum, she suddenly fell to the ground in a death dive and I was convinced that a sniper in the gallery had shot her - at which point the hubba put the telly off and said gently, "I think it's time we had another little sleep, don't you?"   

Hopefully, normal service will be resumed next week!

I think you are starting to come out on the right side of ill now.  You may be still under the weather but your sense of humour is returning.  Hurray for that.  Take care.

I hope you're feeling a bit better now Aida and that Solomon is using his paw a bit more.  Nothing more worrying that a poorly moggie especially if you're not feeling well yourself.  I have visions of both of you tucked up in bed!  Mine has decided that winter is definitely here so sleeping under the duvet is the only way to keep warm!Big%20smile

Thanks so much for all your support and good wishes!

We're both much, much better - I'm almost spot-free, but still a bit weak and easily tired as well as amazed at how ill a 'childhood disease' can make an adult feel, and Solomon is prancing around on all four legs and driving me bliddy mad by demanding to be let out to play with the monotonous regularity and volume of a fog-horn.

He's not going anywhere apart from a sedate walk around the garden with Daddy until he's finished his course of antibiotics - not when his life-saving op and treatment cost me the price of my new bathroom!

I, on the other hand, only cost the price of a couple of tubs of calamine cream and two bottles of Lucozade!

Anyway, it's looking good for the blog tonight, although my beloved Barca have tempestuously decided to kick off at 5:30pm - and yes, before you all remind me, I know they lost their match against Celtic midweek, but there's no shame there as Celtic were magnificent!

See y'all later - if we're spared!
