5 Jun

The post’s title is short because that’s all I can think of today.  I promised you stories of my mucus, old buildings and new visitors; but all you’ve had are jokes.

Super Yorkie

I’m tired.

I’ve had two months of constant on-the-go-ness and now I have to listen to my husband using my own nagging against me: Listen to your body!  It’s okay to do nothing for a little while. Watch telly and leave your laptop alone.  Your readers will manage to survive without you.

Okay, I don’t say that last bit to him, but I would if he was a blogger.

I’m lying in bed at lunchtime typing this, and I don’t feel guilty.  I don’t feel anything except jellyness – that feeling that you will collapse into a sticky puddle on the floor, licked up by dogs with sweet tooths and remembered only as that blogger who made us laugh for a bit till she overdid it and then disappeared into a Yorkie’s gut.

Yes, self-pity is alive and well in Tillybudland, but it’s nothing a week off and the first thirty episodes of ER won’t cure.

See you on the other side, if I don’t turn into a pudding.

    Listen to the Hub, I don’t want the dogs licking your jellyness into their little bellies. Put your feet up and enjoy ER, it was really pretty great especially in the beginning.:)

    Greet each day with a smile! Be glad you are alive. Count your blessings. Now if only I could follow my own advice…

    I really do think I know what you mean….

    I love “Super Yorkie.” Get your rest. We won’t go away. We promise. I’m tired, too. I need a nap.

    If you’re reading this comment, you’re doing the wrong thing. Shut the danged thing off, TB. Don’t make me come over there and smack you silly.

    From one jelly blob to another, do as you’re told and rest. xox ViV

    Sometimes you got to take a break and contemplate your naval. D~

    Take good care and get some well deserved rest.

    All you have to do now is resist the urge to log into WordPress. 🙂 Feel better soon, Tilly. xx

    Take the time you need Linda, we’ll wait for you! Give yourself a couple extra Maltesers for good measure – I would hate to see you turn into a pudding.

    Enjoy your break! 😎


  16. Grannymar June 5, 2013 at 21:11 #

    Time for blog leave with full pay in Maltesers, that will buck you up in no time. Enjoy the rest.

    You are under a rest! You have the right to remain silent … 🙂
    Don’t turn into a pudding. Prove you’re not to be trifled with.

    Get better soon!


  19. June 6, 2013 at 01:52 #

    REST 100% and then come back! Some of us need you!

    I love E.R!! (The series, not the place…) Enjoy 🙂 Feel better soon.

    Taking time to recharge and heal is important.

    Get well soon Tilly, I can commiserate because I’ve had a chest infection for the last two weeks and feeling lousy gets old really quick. Laptops in bed are good, unfortunately not all of what I have written makes sense because my concentration skills were invaded by germs and are now overrun with medications.
    Hopefully the sunshine will have both our sets of germs on the run very soon.

      Sorry to hear you’re not well. I’m just tired (exhausted!), so all I need is rest. I think it’s worse for you. Feel better soon!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
