Our Easter so far...

Coughing. All of us, but particularly Son 1, who I sent to the emergency doctor on Saturday morning as he sounded so bad.

Chocolate. Though not as much as usual, we've cut down this year.

Coffee. Too much.

Computers. Hubby has managed to get a nasty worm or virus on his new laptop which will need professional attention. I then spent ages ensuring my own machine was thoroughly scanned for nasties.

Dr Who. First impressions of the mad new Doctor were good. Potentially great chemistry with the feisty new assistant and some fabulous one-liners in Steven Moffatt's script.

Sleep. After rushing around possibly a little too much last week, I spent the whole of Easter Sunday afternoon asleep. Of course my daily 5.20am starts with Son 2 haven't helped either.

Writing. None actually, I've been too tired to form words into logical sentences. But I have been doing some more research for the next novel and thinking up some more potential themes for short stories. All I need to do now is sit down and write them.

Sorry to hear you've all been ill - and your husband's laptop. I hope the chocolate has made up for it.

Wishing you all a speedy recovery.

Coffee and coughing sounds about right for a British Bank Holiday.

Hope you all recover soon. Happy Writing, when you get to it. I've got the hang of the sitting down bit the *actual* writing can be an elusive sod, can't it?

I think you just need to sit down! Give yourself a break. And get well all of you. Nothing worse than feeling crook and knowing you have a million and one things to do.

Aw thank you for all the good wishes.

CJ - I can't sit down for long unless I'm actually doing something productive like writing or reading. My trouble at the moment is that I'm still trying to learn how to pace myself so the MS doesn't get worse and last week I just did a little too much I think.It's best if I only rush around every other day :)
