Ready for bank holiday weekend

It been a strange week. My sore throat and cold, unfortunately turned into sinusitis and I was very unwell over the weekend, but today I am feeling better than I have felt for over 2 weeks so things are looking very much up. I did a lot of steaming because my doctor friend said that it was a better cure for sinusitis than any medicines, suits me, and it seemed to do the trick.
However I have possibly broken my finger. We're not sure if it is a break or a very bad bruised joint, but it is strapped up to the one next to it. Comes to something when the first thing I worried about was the fact that I might not be able to do any gardening when I get back with a dodgy finger.

So the good news is that I am coming home for the weekend this Friday evening. I have 3 days off, so probably won't have to come back to London until Monday afternoon at the earliest. I can't wait, I can tell you. I am sure I will come back to grass that needs cutting, more rain, a cold dusty house and some dead plants here and there, but I will love every single moment.

Sorry that my posts have been few and far between and probably a bit miserable and self-obsessed, but I will be back on track soon with more plans and more interesting things to talk about, I hope, bear with me.

My dress rehearsal is on Friday and opening night is on Monday 14th and I'm looking forward to both.


  1. Oh no! Sorry you are going through all that. No worries about your posts, I can't speak for everyone but I do enjoy reading everything you've written. Glad you are on the mend.

    I thought it was 'break a leg', not a finger? Hey, I thought maybe a laugh would help. LOL!

    You'll feel so much better at "home", even if only for a few days.

  2. Yes your posts have been few and far between, I was going to say 'get your finger out' but it seems a little inappropriate now.
    Anyway, hope you get well soon and enjoy your short trip back home.

  3. For sinusitis, try sniffing up each nostril with warm salty water. It is SO disgusting I know but it's the only way I clear the blockage in my face. Try it in the shower every morning. I have had every medication known to man, but this is the only relief I really get - the sinusitis triggered off trigeminal neuralgia - SO painful.

    The finger - can't advise on, only commiserate.

  4. Have a good and relaxing break!!!
    Love from Mum

  5. Good to hear you are on the mend, finger and all. Nice for you to be able to return home for a little while. Enjoy your brake at home!!

  6. Sorry to hear about the broken finger - ouch. Hope you have a very relaxing weekend back home - enjoy that garden.


  7. You poor thing! Hope the finger is ok.

    Hope you have a fantastic performance-not long now!

    Have the most wonderful weekend.

  8. I don't mind when or how often you post, because you always have something interesting to say. I'm sure you will find a way of gardening with one finger less, hope it gets better soon. I want to come and see your show now, but I don't want to go to London. Can you tour with it please?

  9. I use neti pots--I get sinus infections all the time and they work a treat.

  10. Thanks everyone, sinusitis is gone, thanks to steaming and sniffing very expensive seawater. Finger is still strapped up, but not giving me any pain or trouble and going home for the weekend has put a smile on my face.
