a bit poorly

Well, having escaped the flu-ey bug up to now it really hit yesterday - fortunately I don't seem to have it as bad as the rest of the family had it, but I still felt pretty rotten yesterday and today - which was a bit of a shame as yesterday was my birthday. Thirty-nine years old and wondering what I will do to mark my Fortieth! I guess it depends where we are by March of next year!

So here I am now, aching and nursing slightly strained back muscles due to excessive coughing! Despite the fuzzy head feeling that i have I am still trying to put together something original by way of a sermon for tomorrow. Fortunately it's a 'light' Sunday with only an 8.30am and a 10.30am to cover.

Unfortunately this coldy thing started on Thursday evening and I took myself off to bed early, which was when i was going to offer reflections on the excellent training day I had been on! I will write more when my head is clear and services aren't looming.

Have a good Sunday!

Sorry to hear you are ill. I have had a cough for three weeks now. My muscles are nice and toned -- somewhere under all my fat ....

I will say a wee prayer for you Alastair and hope you are feeling better soon.

Ahh, that flu bug! I had that cough and general ill feeling over Christmas. Take care of yourself and....Happy Birthday!

I've had a birthday recently, as well, Alastair...this year, I was in the middle of a move, and just did not celebrate it.

Hope you feel better soon! Remember to celebrate your birthday twice over on your fortieth, to make up for the lack of celebration on your thirty ninth!

Sorry to hear your sick. Sometime pastors need to admit they need time to get well and not push to preach.
