Shawls really are wonderful and comforting to wrap around you. I love my shawls!!
You really cannot crochet when you are feeling cross eyed. You will save far more time by just putting it down and waiting.
My favourite (if such a thing can be said, usual might be a better word) chemists website has literally hundreds of items for treating colds and coughs etc. How on earth do you decide which ones to take when you are in the grip of a cold? My answer, give up and just take whatever hubby has found lurking in the cupboard.
No matter how much honey you add to a lemsip (a cold medicine that you add to hot water, dissolve and drink) it will still taste disgusting. Hubby suggested that this is so that it makes your body get better faster so that it doesn't keep having to taste the stuff.
I am an incredibly bad sick person. You could not say that I "enjoy" ill health!!!
Marshmallows make a great throat soother when your cough medicine has gone out of date and has sort of dried up and gone crusty in the bottle. Nice and soothing as they go down! Not too shabby on hot chocolate either.
I am a very lucky person to have such caring family and friends and most of all a wonderful husband. Sorry if that is a bit sick making, but being sick makes you realise these things! I am very grateful! Thank you all for being part of that!!
My childhood ambition - when I was about 6 or 7 - was to be able to type without looking at the keys, just like my Mum could. A strange ambition that I have actually realised and for which I am grateful this week. It means that although I cannot concentrate enough to really read things online, I can still type because I don't have to look at what I am doing.
The cheap hot chocolate tastes much nicer than the posh stuff. Again, why can I not just learn this and stop trying to find the ultimate hot chocolate when the Galaxy stuff - still not cheap I realise, but cheaper than a lot! - tastes far better.
I fear that I am a moaning Minnie - and please don't feel that you have to be lovely and say that I'm not - mulling things over while not doing much else I fear that I moan more than I want to, should or is good for anyone to do. This year my personal aim has been too keep my mouth shut - which mostly I have managed - so next year it will be to not moan. A new years resolution made in the previous November. Does that mean something I wonder??
You really do need to keep a note of the Christmas presents that you have already gathered up for people otherwise you can soon have more than you thought. A good thing in my case as it meant that I was finished buying for someone quicker than I realised, but it could easily have been overshopping. Notes will now be made!!
I have been through three boxes of tissues in three days. Is that some sort of record? I knew that I should have bought shares in a cold medicine company.
As you can tell my sense of humour has returned - thank goodness!!! - and although I am still feeling grotty, I am SOOOOOOO much better now. Thank you for the good wishes, I haven't replied individually due to the cross eyed thing, but THANK YOU, I am sure that your wishes have made me better soon.
Today I ventured out to get some more cold meds - due to the failure of online meds shopping (see above) - and boy was I exhausted when I got home. I had a crazy idea that while I am sick I could make the Christmas cake so I bought the fruit that I needed, but was too darned tired to make the cake. It will wait - see housework!.
Still watching tv shows, I am really getting the tally down. Oh gosh I have recorded some odd stuff, mostly from BBC4 it seems. Although I am sure that our recorder records stuff that I have never set it to record. It used to do that with Midsomer Murders, we were often overrun with them for no good reason.
Ooopsssss, see, I am not good, I just pressed publish by accident before I finished typing. That must mean it is time to go.
So, Thank You once again lovely people. I am getting there and will return on Friday! With what I have no idea, but Five On Friday will happen regardless as apart from anything there are oddly still at least five flowers flowering in the garden so I can always photograph those!
See you on Friday! I hope that all is well with all of you!!! Look after yourselves!!
