Post Holiday Blues

Since I returned from America – is it only two weeks ago? I’ve been busy catching up with a million things including writing reports for the ‘work’ part of my trip and facing all the home-task-stuff I wasn’t doing while I was away.

In between, I did readings at the ‘Better homes and Gardens Show’ and ran a Scbwi meeting in Carlton on Saturday Through all of this I’ve been feeling fit and healthy and firing on all cylinders – at least I thought I was.

Which is why, on Sunday morning when I woke to a room spinning in circles and feeling like I was on an upside-down carousel, I had no idea what was wrong. It turns out I have vertigo, brought on most likely from a virus which traveled back with me on the plane.

Apparently it will hang about for a week or so, this feeling of the floor turning, somersaulting and ebbing like ocean waves …… weird sensation! I have three very dear friends who are facing serious health issues at the moment and I feel fortunate that I’ll be back on deck soon, but it made me realise how quickly things can change and how precious our health is.

So my aim is to write something wonderful, or at least try to, remembering that Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland in the midst of a migraine.

Here are a few more holiday memories to share with you.

  2. Chris Bell Keep up the great attitude, Corinne. Vertigo is only temporary though a horrid thing. I remember that bizarre sensation of the bed spinning when just lying there. Hope you're back on deck very soon. Hugs, Chris xx
