Monday post 03/04/23: struggling

Welcome to my blog at the beginning of a new week. I try to post on Mondays with anything that takes my fancy, on Wednesdays with a roundup of the books I have finished reading, and on Fridays with any outfits that I have worn during the week.

Today, I am struggling. In fact I have been for some time. Regulars will know that I recently had a very nasty battle with shingles on top of my usual list of unpleasant conditions. It lasted at least six weeks and I thought that I had fully recovered from it. Unfortunately, I have been left with feelings of exhaustion. I try to get up to do a small task, such as hanging some washing on the airer, but quickly become very tired, gasping for breath. I then sit or lie down whilst my breathing settles and my heart  rhythm recovers, but this seems to take such a long time. I am simply worn out.

To be honest, I am so fed up with my life at the moment! Thank goodness for my three “chaps”, my friends and kind visitors to this blog. So sorry to moan at you, but I sometimes need to use my blog to let my feelings out!

Back to normal service on Wednesday, I hope.

So, I will leave you with this cheerful photo, which I found on Twitter:

Lovely, isn’t it? All of that work!

Love and best wishes,
