sorry guys/gals

I haven't posted for awhile and just want to write a quick note to let you know that I haven't been kidnapped or killed.  I have been ill.  The doc's opinion is its Ross River Virus.  I have only just had the test  and am still waiting for results.  Alas, testing at the time of getting crook is useless as 'ross river' takes up to six weeks to show up.

Feeling achy and tired.  My eyesight is deteriorating and can be depressing for crafty people who like to hand sew!  I am finding it rather difficult to focus up close.  Doctor diagnosed me with 'Surfer's Eye'.  Not internet surfer but wind surfers.  I have sun and wind damage.  Playing on the internet does make my eye go blood shot really quickly so have tried to give my eye a break from the computer for most stuff except quick email stuff and facebook keeping in touch stuff.  My eye became much improved with pain and redness from the break.!

But I have made some bags!!  and will take some photos soon as I find my camera!

Take care.  I am going to try and have a massive catchup on everyones blog real soon (and most likely cause my eye to play up and become sore again!)  I am going to have a beeper near my PC to remind me to have a huge break after 30 mins. maybe sooner.  Or program my PC to shut down after 30 mins/hour and not let me back on till I have had a break!  Any opinions?  Does anyone else have eye problems that using a computer worsens?

Glad to see you back blogging, all be it in short doses whilst you recover. Hopefully it's not Ross River as there's no treatment for that is there? Does surfers' eye go away or is it permanent? I hope for your crafting sake, it's a temporary thing. Now if you're still online....GET OFF and go rest your eyes. Hugs Naomi

I've been thinking of you lately and told myself I'll write to you if I don't see any blog post by this week! Good to know you're back. So sorry about your ross river virus and eye problems. I hope you get better. I suffer from dry sensitive eyes and I use eye drops which do not contain preservatives. I also pre-wash all my fabric before using them. It's a must. My eyes will get inflamed if I don't.

So great to see a post from you. Sorry to hear that you have been so ill...I hope that you start a speedy recovery soon. Sorry, I have no tips for the computer. Although, I like the one about the beeper. The alarm on my stove does not go off until someone hits it. So if I need to get off the computer that is the alarm I use. :-)

I hope you get well real soon. You have been missed. I hope your eyes let you do some browsing but we all know how quickly time goes by when you are trawling around your favourite sites. Take care Kylie.

Hi Kylie! I was just thinking of you this week and was going to e-mail you to check in with you. I am sorry that I didn't...was so busy this week getting ready to leave for our vacation. I am so sorry to hear that you have been ill. I hope the eye problem is not permanent? You do what you need to do to be well, my friend! We'll always be just an e-mail away!

Can't wait to see your new bags, too!

Take good care of yourself, and I'll be checking in with ya soon!

Yay! I'm glad you're back! Take care of yourself. Sometimes I just stay away from the computer, it's a big time snatcher and my eyes do get weary. Look forward to seeing your bags!
