Just a wee note to let you know that, although I’m still in the land of the living, I’ve got sinusitis as a result of a heavy cold so I’m pretty much absent from blog-land.  The Dr has equipped me with a rather nifty nasal-spray and I should be back to normal in a few days.

Lent is progressing without much participation on my part – I’ve not been to Mass for over a week as I’ve been ill but I have given up caffinated beverages.  There’s still caffeine in the cold meds I’ve been taking but I can’t really help that.  And chocolate’s been in my ‘diet’ because, although I’m not an idiot, I sometimes do idiotic things.

I have started to do a little study but don’t really have the concentration to do very much.  I’m very thankful that the official start date isn’t until 1st March.


I’ve a bad cold which, I think, is settling down for a stay in my chest.  I can’t see the Dr until Tuesday.  I sound so bad that when a friend phoned this afternoon to say that she’d be passing and could she come and visit, she promptly changed her plans and stayed away!  I can’t say I blame her, to be honest.

I’m missing going to Mass.  I’ve missed this Sunday and last and only got to one weekday Mass last week.  I know that a) I’m not yet Catholic and b) I’m sick and therefore not under obligation to go but I still miss it.  There was no RCIA on Friday because of the school holiday and, to be honest, this is probably a good thing as I’d have forced myself to go and then been miserable while infecting the other participants.

Studying has ground to a halt as I just don’t have much concentration.  And I’m sleeping.  Sleeping lots.  And coughing.  And sneezing.  And very busy trying to get my fever to subside.  Which it won’t.  So I’m alternately opening all the windows and pulling on every sweater I own.  Bah!

I don’t like taking anti-biotics but will actually be glad if Dr T take out his prescription pad on Tuesday.
