'Tis an ill wind

’Tis an ill wind that blows nobody any good.

(Taken in Spain last year)

Well the illness that has struck me down of late seems to have subsided and I'm feeling a bit better. While I'm far from rested, I am feeling verbose and have had time to do a bit of thinking, so please prepare yourself for a veritable raft of posts. A lot more of what I did rather than what I do, but still. (Ab)normal service resuming shortly.

On a slightly related theme, I learned a valuable lesson yesterday. If you're not feeling well, if you have aches and pains, a loss of appetite or energy, can't sleep or calm your mind; if you just don't feel right then please go and see a doctor. Even if you think ah it's just because of... the weather / the recession / stress /allergies / a dodgy take-away / problems at home / at work or whatever, do yourself the favour of getting it checked out. Stop making excuses and go. Though no stranger to a doctor, I'm glad I did.


  1. Good Advice!

    Did you tell the Doc you brought a Granny home at the weekend? That is enough to have you locked up!

  2. My family has a terrible track record in relation to health, I'd far rather remaining ignorant til I'm your old age Darragh.

  3. Glad you're feeling better and sound advice indeed!

    I'm useless at going to the doctor though, only go if my head is practically falling off!

  4. Sorry to hear you were ill Darragh, but glad you're getting better!

  5. Let's just hope it was only a blip in your system.

  6. Phew! Good to see you back, Darragh. You wuz missed, you wuz!

    Take your time, we'll still be here when you're ready to surf the rapids again.

    Take it easy! Steph says!
