No I think it was flu

having not felt this rough in years I feel I must have had a bout of the flu. For those that know me, staying in bed is not a practice I keep, however I spent most of Sunday asleep in my bed and when I got up I couldn't even pick up my knitting needles, needless to say the husband was shocked. I dragged my bones into work yesterday to be told you look awful go home, so rather than argue I did. In fact I've given myself today off too just to make sure I'm better. My head still feels a bit spaced out but the aching in my bones has gone. I plan to take myself for a walk later to get some air then continue with the zig zag pram blanket that I'm currently knitting.
