Hi Anne
no chance of walk here; howling winds and torrential rain/sleet UGH!
At least I got some ST in first thing but otherwise have lazed....and now feel restless as beddie byes time doubt I'll have a fitful night as a result emoticon

Yeah I've seen bulbs peaking through and snow drops. I am DYING to get my garden tidied up but it's WAY TOO WET!!

We're downhill to the weekend and have been promised milder weather come Sunday- I NEED to get out and about LOL.
Can't remember the last time I had brekkie in bed emoticon

I reckon you need a light therapy light to put your sleep right- might get mine out......if this pattern of day lethargy/ fitful sleeep persists

Thanks Anne, I just had a call from my Dr. Xrays were clear so it's not pneumonia. Just resting today and taking it easy until I'm mended. Will ease back into things as I feel better.
