Under the weather

The day started miserable and I woke up cold so Hubby put the heating on for half an hour. I’d gone to bed last night with the tail end of one of the worst headaches I’d had in years. Sugar didn’t seem to fix it, so I fell back on plan B, which was salt. Any excuse for a bag of crisps.
I didn’t have that good a night, and woke up with a sore throat, but no headache. I had a lemsip with my breakfast and trying to drink loads, but it’s painful, as is talking (stop cheering!).
Luckily, we have a good supply of throat lozenges in the first aid kit, so I have been sucking on them for most of the day, took two paracetamol after lunch (and hours after the lemsip) and have now had some hot water with honey.  I am not feeling myself (or anyone else actually) so signing off for today. I think I’ve got all the pingbacks and comments sorted.
Back tomorrow.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    HOpe you get well soon Di! Bad headaches are miserable. Caffeine seems to help mine, but if you want to sleep, that won’t work.

    Ohhh, my Di, I am praying for a swift recovery. No need to reply to this comment, lady, just REST! (You may try the equivalent of a Starbucks ‘medicine ball’ if you can… it is their Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea, Peach Tranquility Herbal Tea, hot water, steamed lemonade, and a hint of honey. If you’re really stuffed up, add a little peppermint as well. I also get it with LIGHT lemonade, otherwise it is too sweet). Hope that helps a little, love.
