Adele has said she is still coming to terms with her Grammy wins - and laughed off suggestions she will take a five-year break.

The singer, who landed six prizes at the awards in LA at the weekend, said in a blog that she was swinging between laughter and tears as she recalled the evening, which rewarded her album 21.

And she countered a suggestion that she was planning an extended break from the music world, following comments in a magazine interview.

Adele wrote: "I've a few days off now, and then it's the Brit Awards here at home and then I'm straight into the studio. BOYYAHH! Five years? More like five days."

The Grammys - at which she won every award for which she was nominated - saw her make her performing comeback following surgery in the US last year. Adele had been warned unless she had the operation on her vocal cords she risked losing her singing voice forever.

The 23-year-old wrote that she was "flabbergasted" by her awards haul.

"In between laughing my head off, welling up, needing to sit down and trying to maintain an open fire (which is pretty much impossible huh!?), I keep having flashbacks to Sunday night.

"The most incredible night of my life. Thank you to you all, I am so overwhelmed, it's the strangest feeling. I have constant butterflies and goosebumps, it's wearing me out but I love it.

"I've been sleeping a lot but the minute I wake up I burst out laughing and it starts all over again.

Adele also thanked fans for their loyalty and word of mouth support for her album.
