i blame public transport

I’ve been bedridden for the last two days with an absolute killer cold.

Fortunately some sort of truce was called to comfort me.

You know how it goes – you rarely get sick and bask in your superior health while your somewhat less-healthy colleagues fall one by one.

On Friday I could feel *something* coming on, but I persuaded myself that I could overcome it through sheer force of will – and confining myself to low key activities. This kinda-sorta worked until Monday when I spent most of the day sneezing and working my way through a box of tissues.

But yesterday. Ugh! Woke up feeling like my whole head was being squeezed in a vise, accompanied by all sorts of bodily aches and pains.

Today was only slightly better – so I made the executive decision to take another sick day and lazed about in bed enjoying my new flanelette sheets. I was previously scathing of flanelette sheets, but they’re actually kind of brilliant**. Perhaps I’d only even had super-cheap shedding ones before?

I can’t even remember the last time I had two sick days in a row, but gosh it was nice – despite the unwellness.


** Another of those occasions where Don and Joan were right

I’m sorry you’re sick but I’m sure a good dose of kitties will help a lot!

I have learnt the hard way that you should always rest when you are unwell. A day in bed with Netflix or BBC iPlayer, a good book and lots of tea cures most things. I understand that for some people cats are also essential.

Glad you’re back on the recovery road
