I've found a reason for my headache and tiredness over the past couple of days. The Dreaded Lurg. I've woken up this morning and my entire body is aching and my throat feels as though there is something wedged down there, my head is still aching and I'm still tired. Not good at all.
I feel like going back to bed and curling up in the warmth, but instead I'm struggling on. I've given myself an easy day today researching, computing, with a little bit of painting. I decided against tackling anything that I could easily mess up and get annoyed with....i.e. -sewing!
The post brought nice things today. My new clock case (see above- with the lovely roses my mother bought me, reduced after valentines day - the best time for flowers!) which will be transformed into something fantastic, although I'm not quite sure what yet. I also received news on my MFA application!!! They've acknowledged receipt and it's now being considered!! I really am too impatient - I wanted an immediate decision!! The post also brought not so nice rejection letters for the much coveted position at the farming museum. I'm beginning to think I'm totally unemployable.
I've also had news of my findings delivery - they called this morning to say they were sending it special delivery today, so I should have things by tomorrow. It's quite amazing how quickly people respond to a paypal claim! Apparantly it has already been posted and must have gone missing somewhere along the way. But really, they could have responded to my emails to tell me so. I really do despise being ignored!
So, I must get back to researching, buying books - do I really need any more!? and trying to figure out Dreamweaver....although Dreamweaver may wait until my head isn't so fuzzy.
