Well, the situation is.... I haven't been feeling too well for about 4 weeks, then about 2 weeks ago I started getting terrible muscle aches - as if I had done an extreme workout at a gym!
Eventually, on Friday when I could hardly move, I went to see the doctor who informed me that I have quite a severe virus. I am now on antibiotics and feeling a bit better, but the doctor said it will take a while to get back to 100% as I left is so long before seeking treatment (oh, by the way... I hate going to the doctor, lol)
So that is where I am now, I have tried my best to keep my chin up and just get on with things, not realising that I was actually ill - and I am still doing that, I hate giving in to illness, so I will still be around just about as much, although have decided I will take an hour or so every afternoon for a while - catch up on those episodes of Lost that I haven't yet seen - wow... how far behind the times am I??????
So basically, it may take me a bit longer to accept submissions to
and I am hoping to get back on top of commenting on submissions to the challenges at
and to get back on top of keeping my blog running smoothly.
I am so grateful for all the friends I have made on this site - it has been my lifeline pretty much while I have been feeling bad - a visit here always lifts my spirits, and that's thanks to all you outstanding artists and lovely people
