Oh Poor Neglected Blog

I have a confession to make... I am a bad blogger... I really am! I started with great plans to do a journal entry on this blog every day and totally failed! The reason said blog has been neglected is I hurt my neck... it's repetitive strain type thing which has happened this badly once before and requires copious amounts of codine and heat pack applications to fix it.

The plus side to this injury is I can still felt... the bad side to it is it makes typing on the laptop agony so I have been out of it for a bit. The codine makes me sick and sleepy, and to be honest ever so slightly stoned which isn't entirely unpleasant but I wouldn't recommend it as a hobby! It means I have been a right grumpy bum all week and my long suffering boyfriend has had to put up with me being a cowbag to him. (If he doesn't want to get shouted at he should really stop asking me if I'm ok every five mins!)

It did occur to me that had I been working in my old job I would have had to call in sick which would have resulted in me laying on the sofa for 3 days doing nothing (I get guilt when I work from home when I should be being a bookslave!) because I wasn't working I managed to make loads of legs for tweets and make 6 new designs and several old ones. It's amazing how doing something you love can make a difference to how you feel.

The neck is a lot better now (I can look right again... useful for crossing roads etc) but the codine is playing havoc with my system still and I am sleeping alot. I'm glad I kept going with work too, lots of new things to list and pictures to take (it was photo editing that messed this up in the first place) and I have learned a valuable lesson... photo editing is bad for RSS injuries... so only 20 pics at a time and not the 150 I did the other day... oops!


  1. Wow, you might need to invest in something that will make working on the lappy for photo editing easier and not so hard for your neck!

    Take it easy and get all well soon!

  2. I'm glad your neck is starting to feel better! Neck pain is the worst. I know how you feel(or used to feel), whenever I call in sick, I feel like I shouldn't do anything, because I feel guilty.
