You lot are all going to suspect that I’m a hypochondriac soon. As true as daylight, my flu came back and hit me uspide the head. If I hadn’t been so ill, I’d have felt guilty of malingering myself. Any rate, if I’ve left offensive comments, otherwise caused umbrage because of neglecting a friend, or tooted Bohemian Rhapsody out of my undercarriage, I am sorry. I cannot be held accountable for my actions while I am delirious.
And it wasn’t half as bearable as last week’s flu, no Colin Firth this time. Nope, I got Peter Falk, which gave me a terrible fright seeing as didn’t he just die about a week ago? No dead people, thanks all the same, I sent him back wherever he came from. Instead I got Nurse Houlihan from M*A*S*H… Go figure, that’s the kind of luck I’m having.

And limping in for Side View’s weekend challenge; Friday marks the symbolic end to my daughter’s childhood; her thirteenth birthday. I’ve got a busy time ahead and I find myself introspective and sentimental. Time goes by so fast …enough soppy stuff,
here, have a muffin.

Hoo hah! Whatever you do, don’t Google ‘lame and infirm’ … seems it’s the favourite search engine term for the Hell & Brimstone Brigade!

      A little worse for wear, hopefully I’ll be ship-shape soon.

  2. bluebee says:

    Oh dear, Cin – being delirious is no fun at all, particularly with visitations from a cross-eye gumshoe and a… well, probably best left unsaid… glad to see you back on your feet 🙂 Enjoy the party planning (one day she will be your best friend – just remember that)

    1. theonlycin says:

      Hope springs eternal, bluebee 🙂

    After a glass or two of fine wine…I have forgotten what you said about one of my pictures…wait…who’s post am I commenting on…oh…never mind…feel better soon. 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      I definitely saw hands 😉

  4. Wawho, you have a hoot when your sick. What do u take? I want some. Great little muffin, looks yum.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I took some stuff that was like a horse sedative this past weekend, No fun.

  5. Oh gosh! Sounds like a horrible friend who is overstaying his welcome, Cin 😦 Hope you feel better soon. Those muffins do look yummy. Does that help?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, thank you Lee 🙂

  6. souldipper says:

    Really sorry you are having to deal with this horrid bug, Cin. I don’t know how moms get through these things…like being the dazzling (recovering) mom who produces the important birthday gathering.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank heavens for my husband this past weekend, I really have respect for single moms who have to cope alone.

  7. earlybird says:

    I wondered if you weren’t ill again. So sorry to hear you didn’t get a second chance with Colin Firth… hope you’re fully recovered soon. You must be feling pretty washed out.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, this one hit hard. Next winter I am going have the flu vaccine.

  8. adeeyoyo says:

    I have heard of other people getting it again, like an echo of the first bout. Keep strong. Teens! You will need all your strength, Cin!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I will always have merlot, adee …

  9. sue chef says:

    Glad you are on the mend, I tried ClemenGolds! wrote and post and mentioned you.

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s always a good idea to write and post … otherwise what’s the point?

  10. sue chef says:

    That was meant to be ‘wrote a post’

  11. Sorry you are feeling rotten again, sending over some soup, and thanks, I’d love a muffin! They look wonderful.

    As for your daughter reaching 13 – I have 2 daughters, both in their 20’s, and I loved the teen years! Teenagers are great fun, full of strong opinions and energy. One may feel sad at the passing of childhood, but the best is yet to come, I promise.

    Feel better soon!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I hope you’re right, Supa’s never came right …. *runs and hides*

  12. Sparky says:

    Get better soon Cindy 😉

  13. Tilly Bud says:

    You sure you’re not still delirious? Poor Cin. You must have got up too soon from last week’s sick bed; the body needs time to recover.

    Happy birthday to your daughter. Now the terror (I use that word advisedly, with its echo of France, 1789) begins. You’re going to wish you were still out of it all. 🙂

    Get better soon, and don’t feel the need to go rushing round the blogs, leaving comments. We’ll still be here.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m starting to think I may suffer from OCD 😉

  14. Tandy says:

    seems you have been hit sideways by the flu! I am hoping mine does not progress from the sore throat I have! I am looking forward to Friday …. Have a great day xxx

    1. theonlycin says:

      I completely lost Saturday and Sunday, have little recollection of anything 🙂

  15. johnlmalone says:

    man, Cindy, I’m just drooling over that muffin. and \I reckon coming from you it wouldn’t be a garden variety one but something special 🙂 funny I’ve had a bad cold the last couple of days and had a flue shot: the doctor said I wouldn’t even notice any possible side effects as I already displayed flu-like symptoms

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s a regular old bumpy choc chip muffin, John 🙂

  16. Steffi says:

    I hope you feel better soon!Your little muffins looks yummy!Have a nice day!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Steffi, I’ll be around to visit in the next while, just working through my emails.

  17. thestonemaidendiaries says:

    Bly jy is soveel beter. 😀

    1. theonlycin says:

      Ja, nou hoef jy nie jou beste begrafnis tabbert uit die kas uit te haal nie!

  18. granny1947 says:

    Shame doll….get better soon.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks my friend 🙂

  19. MissChris says:

    Jy werk te hard vriendin!!! Time to slow down and smell the roses perhaps??
    Take care and look after yourself!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Going to smell some good Merlot, methinks.

  20. Tes says:

    Get well soon, Cindy 🙂

  21. nursemyra says:

    Of course I had to google “lame and inform”. You’re currently 4th on the results list

    1. theonlycin says:

      Oh, fourth on my list is: Surgeons, Smallpox, and the Poor: A History of Medicine :O

  22. nursemyra says:

    Oops I meant “infirm”

    1. theonlycin says:

      Lame and inform sounds like an pirates term … like stand and deliver …

  23. mairedubhtx says:

    Hope you are better now.

    1. theonlycin says:

      On the mend, thanks Fatima 🙂

  24. Hope you get better soon!

  25. SuziCate says:

    Thanks or for the muffin. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Up and down, SuziCate 😦

  26. Jy sal maak dat ek vetsug kry van al jou lekker goed hier 🙂

  27. Linda says:

    I should think several of those yummy muffins would fix you right up!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Some days are worse than others and I feel so sick I think I ought to be in hospital.

  28. nrhatch says:

    Feel better, kiddo! Great week for celebrating birthdays! 😀

    1. theonlycin says:

      Happy one to you 🙂

  29. Jamie Dedes says:

    Wow! You have had a time of it.

    Soppy is a natural state for a mother! I defend us to the end. No apologies.

    Lovely cupcakes. Yummy! 🙂

    Happy Birthday to your “dort.”

  30. “tooted Bohemian Rhapsody out of my undercarriage,” – that’s the best thing i’ve read in years

  31. So sorry to hear this flu is taking time to shift, Cindy. I thought your rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody had artistic merit, but I have to say Her Majesty did let slip afterwards that your crescendo towards the final section was a little de trop. I’ve blamed the flu, don’t worry.

    Thanks for the muffin. Yum.

    1. theonlycin says:

      That Liz Windsor can’t keep anything under her hat …

  32. Pseu says:

    Happy Birthday for your daughter….
    you know on your 13th birthday you have to have chocolate cup cakes: muffin else will do

  33. Tammy says:

    Happy Birthday to your daughter and get well to you! Her’s to muffins.

  34. Kathy says:

    So sorry to hear you’re laid up again. Seems like once you get the flu, you’ve got it for awhile. At least that’s how the one we dealt with here over winter was. Happy 13th birthday to your daughter — I bet she’s excited beyond belief. Get well, and don’t push yourself too hard.

  35. Keely aka The Richest Girl in Bondi says:

    Sick as a dog and still thinking of others (by giving them muffins) – you are lovely. Hope you can kick it to the curb soon. A 13th birthday party – is that when the fun ‘kid’ birthdays officially end? No more fairy bread and party bags?

  36. You do well for someone not feeling well. Hope the birthday planning is going well! Xxxxx

  37. Aah, you poor thing. We had that earlier in the year – I called it our “trampoline virus”. Every time we seemed a bit better, it would bounce back and smack us down again. Get well soon, and happy 13th birthday – I reckon we get to share them with our kids, since we’re the ones who actually gave birth! 🙂

  38. dearrosie says:

    Right now I would do anything to have even just one bite of that muffin. I can’t tell whether it’s chocolate or bran, but I don’t care.

      1. dearrosie says:

        Can you hear a tapping on your kitchen door? that’s me…

      2. theonlycin says:

        Please come inside, the door is never locked 🙂
