Sound of Silence – Apologies

Many of you will have noticed that I’ve been a bit quiet of late. This time of year is just so stressful and I find that just cramps my creativity.

I wanted to apologise for not blogging much or visiting other blogs. I do have some plans to write some more stories and poems soon, including my continuation of a murder mystery starring Miss Lemon, former secretary to Hercule Poirot, which was inspired by a recent trip to Agatha Christie’s home in Devon.

Check out the post here:

I was also inspired by the Word of the Day – NAKED, to share a song clip by Simon and Garfunkel, Sound of Silence.

Part of the lyric is “In the naked light I saw, 10,000 people, maybe more.”

Swelling, Protuberances and Apologies.

I have been totally lacklustre today.

I woke up with a strange swelling in my face. I have had random strange swellings (Not the kind you’re thinking of) before. I have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Angioedema, which sounds really cool, but what that just means is that parts of my body, specifically the layer beneath my skin, will swell up and the Idiopathic bit means, they don’t know why.

I have been taking tablets to keep it at bay, antihistamines, but they don’t always do the trick.

It could be caused by a virus or a bacterial infection in my blood, that whizzes around causing my own bodies autoimmune system to swell up to stop it.

It isn’t painful, only uncomfortable and quite scary.

The consultant gave me some sage advice. “Don’t panic,” he said, “It will only make the condition worse” he added.

“Worse?” I responded but what I said was barely audible because my lips had swollen to the size of an R&B artist’s bottom implants.

That was back when it first happened and I was concerned I was going to end up having an anaphylactic shock.

Now I just tend to scream on the inside.

So, I apologise for not being very productive blogwise today. Hopefully, normal service will resume soon.

I hope none of you decides to unfollow me in a fit of pique, due to my poor performance of today.

I’ll have a good nights sleep tonight, then I should be back with you tomorrow, my usual enthusiastic, imaginative and creative self.

Good evening.

HUGE APOLOGIES !!!

I have just checked the Junk Mail folder of my E-mail and found that lots of e-mails from you have ended up there. It’s weird how most of them went through to my main inbox but about a third of them went to junk mail!

My inbox has now gone up to 600 unread e-mails! I will try to catch up with them eventually.

If you have e-mailed me and wondered why I haven’t responded, then this is probably why.

I owe Dee Kelly from Thriving not Surviving a particularly grovelly apology because there are several from her/you about organising our collaborative daily post that I just didn’t get to see.

I hope you can all forgive me.
