This is pretty much me at the moment:

I'm full of cold (since Thursday) and feeling a bit crappity-crap to say the least. CJ has just been out and bought me eight - 8, count 'em! - boxes of Kleenex Balsam Tissues, bless him. The rate I'm going through them, they'll probably be gone by this evening.

I hardly slept a wink last night, and I don't even feel like I've got the energy to write a longer post. I just felt like coming here and having a little moan.

That's all.


  1. Oh dear! There do seem to be some nasty colds around. I recommend a hot bath, hot toddy and then snuggle up under blanket to watch favourite film....tissues at the ready! Get well soon xxx

  2. Oh yeh, I know exactly how you feel, I am just at the tail end of it, was feeling less than all week. One good thing, you know you will get better....:) Take it easy, lots of fluids, you know the drill.

  3. Thank you both - I hope you're feeling better Sandi!

    I'm feeling a bit better today, think I'm over the worst of it now. I've done the hot bath, but also the hot shower because I get a lot more steam with that, which I thought would help my breathing. I've discovered honey in hot water is a pleasant drink, but we ran out of honey so I started using Golden Syrup - I don't think it has the same medicinal qualities as honey though! I've been snuggled up under a blanket, sometimes with a cat sat on my lap like a furry hot water bottle! Haven't watched a film, but I did read The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult, and I'm now racing through The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. At least having a cold means I get to just sit and read all day without feeling guilty and thinking I should be doing something else!

  4. Hope you're feeling better now! x

  5. Gah - it´s awful to have that kind of cold! You have my sympathies for sure..!

    Thanks - I do love to see them so sweet towards eachother too, they have always been like that. I was slightly worried when I got Elsa since she´s a terrier, but she is the kindest dog when it comes to our cat (other cats however...)! :-)

  6. We recently discovered a new Innocent smoothie flavor that has ginger and honey in it and its nice cold or hot. Hope you feel better soon!


Thank you for leaving a comment - I love reading them!
