    Default It's 3.45 am French time, please feel free to ignore this

    Sorry folks, it's some ungodly hour, I'm the only one in here and fancied a chat.

    For the past two days I've been cutting down trees here and at friend's gardens and I went to bed absolutely knackered last night. But my leukaemia thing is playing up and the pruritis - this isn't just itching, I frequently rip open the skin it's so bad and so deep seated and bloody painful - had me awake an hour ago and it's so awkward to stop, I can't get back to sleep. Taken a couple of Piriton, which should help and waiting for them to kick in.

    So, I'm cruising round the Forums, catching up on emails etc etc., too dark to go outside so doing planning and looking back through threads here.

    At least I'm not just sitting up in bed waiting to fall back to sleep.

    See you all later .........

    Damn, I was doing my seed catalogue wishlist ('puter wakes DD as it's in room next to her or I probably would have been on and could have chatted). All the dust from the building work seemed to hit mammoth proportions last night, so I was sitting up sneezing and sniffling most of the night (while OH, having taken a flu tablet, was snoring away!!). I went to the kitchen for tea about 5am Irish time.

    I hope you got a bit of rest later.

    Sorry to hear the problems TonyF. Best thing you could do is get up, hope you got some sleep later and feel better today.

    Sorry to hear things are a bit rough Tony. Hope the piriton took effect and you got some rest in the end.

    Take good care of yourself.

    Oh dear Tony, poor you.

    I sincerely hope that you are feeling better today. I know that this is really for another forum but, are you going to be OK with the new health ruling? We are being affected but mercifully don't have any pre-existing conditions.

    Keep your chin up Tony hope the piriton worked.
