With the recent gloriously hot days of late and temperatures reaching up to 24ºC, I am lucky not to suffer from hay fever as people cut their lawns or tend their flower beds.
Since visiting Doctor Happy and more or less getting a clean bill of health, I have actually been feeling a bit under the weather!
I had a sore throat when I woke up on Friday, and Hubby said it was because I’d been snoring. That figures actually, so I wasn’t too bothered. However, by the end of the day I had a tickly cough with it, so it was out with the Venos, the only cough remedy that works for me which I buy when I see it as it’s hard to come by.
Throw in the hot flushes in the early hours, and you get an idea how things are just now.
The cough and sore throat have sort of been responding, but this morning I woke up at 5.19 (we have a new digital clock in the bedroom) feeling ‘proper poorly’ as we used to say.
My nose was stuffy, my throat and head hurt, and my mouth was permanently salivating as it was the only way I could breathe.
In short, I felt like 5 h 1 t.
Hubby bless him got up and made me a hot lemon drink which contained paracetamol and told me to snuggle under the covers and go back to sleep. I tried, and managed some shut-eye for about forty minutes, then Maggie was awake and it was time to get up.
I won’t be doing much today apart from trying to keep in the same temperature and I’ve just had my second paracetamol drink. The throat lozenges are also out of the OTC box, and I have two full bottles of Venos in reserve should I need them.
Honestly, it’s almost summer, and I’ve gone down with a COLD!
