Today I got up and got dressed. Believe me, after the last 10 days, that was a massive effort. It seems like everyone I speak to is getting sick, is sick or is trying to get over being sick. I'm not sure what's going on but it's a super busy time for cold and flu tablets, chicken soup and lemsips.
I came down with my supercold when we were in Hong Kong. It's always fabulous getting sick while you are on holidays - when all you want is your own bed, your teddy and endless repeats of Martha Stewart, all you have are starchy sheets, housekeeping trying to make your bed and CNN. It's not really comparable. As such, I got off the plane and got into bed and stayed there for almost a week. It's only today that I am starting to feel semi-human...
I thought I should actually leave the house - I despite having the supercold I was starting to get a bit stir crazy and some fresh air would likely do me the world of good. It did - other than a bit of a headache (I think due to pollen, it's hayfever season) I am feeling really quite good. I caught up with a friend and her cuter than cute son for a coffee and a walk at the beach and it was so nice being out in the fresh air. Fingers crossed tomorrow I am feeling even better.
