Following her US X Factor fiasco, Cheryl Cole has thanked fans for inundating her with messages and presents.
Writing on her blog to fans whom she described as "my little soldiers", the pop star admitted that it had been "the weirdest past few weeks".
But the feisty Geordie also insisted: "I am absolutely fine.
"I have had the time to just chill with my loved ones and do the normal things that I like to do.
"See my friends and family and be with my doggys :D.
"It feels long overdue and sooooo good, even my feet are happy to not have to wear a pair of high heels hehe."
The "loved ones" she referred to may include her ex-husband Ashley.
It's been reported that the footballer allowed Cheryl to spend the night in one of the 12 bedrooms at the couple's former marital home.
