It has occurred to me that not posting anything on my blog, risks losing some of my readers, who are very important to me. Also of course, it tends to decimate the stats, which I have worked so hard to build up, and which I now find are also important to me. The problem is, that when I feel poorly, I sometimes just can't muster up the enthusiasm, and I've been below par for over a month now.
Another thing is, that if I mention I am unwell too often it makes me sound like a whinging hypochondriac, which I am not. So rather than sound what I am not, I just don't write anything.
I have been lucky healthwise, so far in my life and I count my blessings for it. Also I am sure that you don't come here to listen to my health woes. I want my blog to welcome you. My purpose in being here is to entertain, inform and occasionally, hopefully make you smile. Even if it then sometimes brings a tear to your eye.
This morning I am feeling better, which hopefully is the start of a continued improvement. Although I am still coughing badly, which is strange because I have been practising all night.
From this day onward I will not be mentioning my health, except to let you know how I get on with the head jerking physiotherapist. Which treatment I have had to cancel yet again. However it is now scheduled for Monday morning. If it works, and I am quite hopeful it will. I will be back to my usual happy, confident self. Perhaps the words will once again tumble profusely from my untidy mind via my grubby unmanicured fingers. Oh how I do hope so!
They are there, I know. I can hear my Mother calling now, "what lies are you going to tell about me today?" Jimmy is right beside me also. He is not saying much. He was always a man of few words, but I shall find more. Fergie hasn't been around for a while. Perhaps he has been drinking again.
There are stories there. Any amount of anecdotes are waiting in the shadows. They are just a little reluctant to reveal themselves at the moment. But when I am fully recovered they will be back.
In the meantime I shall just sit at my keyboard and write. As I am doing today. I need to get those stats back up again, but more importantly I want you to keep coming back. I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but you, you especially, are very important to me.
