Run Down

Two hours into my day already and the sun is breaking. I’ve been working on a “day job” implementation, i.e., running in new software to the mainframe. Menial and boring, but very well paid.

I felt myself coming down with a cold as the week wore on. Several overnight callouts has meant a lack of sleep, and with the temperatures tumbling it’s no wonder I’m feeling very run down. Knowing I was working so early this morning I went to bed early and seem to have reached a stalemate as I feel exactly the same today. Wonderful. Hopefully I can shake it before Christmas.

There’s a lot I have to get done today from take delivery of the last of my present deliveries (I made them Saturday ones for a reason), do some tidying up, some writing and publishing, yet I must find the time to buy a new pair of shoes before my mother kills me. I’m hoping for an easy, relaxing, stress-free weekend.

I noticed a couple of interesting publications have noted the success Madness have had with their new album, The Liberty of Norton Folgate. The Times put it at number 6 in its Top 100 Albums of 2009, saying “We weren’t surprised to find that Madness’s new album was all about London (what else?); but we were surprised to find that they had made what might be the best album of their career.” And Mojo placed it at number 9 in their Top 50. Kudos indeed.

    I often get hit with something just as Christmas gets here, or a holiday of any kind. It’s as though my body’s resisted everything while I’ve needed to function and get stuff done and out, then the second I take a breather, in come all the germs and my defences are taking a break.

    I hope you’re getting a proper break so you can relax, chill, rejuvenate.

  2. Feel better soon. Get whatever rest you can, drink a lot of hot fluids, limit the alcohol.
