I haven't been able to catch my breath for a couple of weeks now. I'm not being lyrical about how busy December was, I'm being literal: my lung capacity has diminished due to respiratory infections and a persistent, irritating, unproductive cough and double-banger ear ache.
Yes, my upper respiratory system had a breakdown.
It started just before Christmas, peaked between then and New Year, and now I'm feeling like I'm getting better but still need another week or so to be fully functional again. Way to spend your Christmas, Michelle!
..and that's all I can manage right now.
