The good things in life …

  1. It is a beautiful spring day and my cherry tree is in blossom.
  2. I ate breakfast [OK, it was in bed.]
  3. I had a nap.
  4. I had a shower.
  5. I have clean hair!!!!! Not sweat-soaked spikes. [This post may get a little graphic.]
  6. I weighed myself. One of the [few] benefits of having no appetite fro 10 days is that you lose 4 kilos.]
  7. I got dressed. In clothes – not night clothes.
  8. I came downstairs.
  9. I ate lunch. At lunchtime. With two courses. [Soup and yoghurt.]
  10. I though about doing some homework to make up for the college session I missed.
  11. My finger nails are longer than they have been for years. Cheshire’s beauty tip – for beautiful nails, lie down all the time and don’t do anything. [I think the coughing is an optional extra.]
  12. Wensleydale has been the most brilliant nurse.

The bad things in life…

  1. I still cough my guts up every time I move – and at random times in between.
  2. I’ve pulled a muscle through coughing which makes it even more painful.
  3. Despite a longing for a bacon sarnie, I can’t have one. Eating food with edges leads to coughing and unsightly spluttering. My diet is restricted to porridge, soup, bread if I soften it in the soup, yoghurt, grapes, water, orange juice and tea.
  4. I’ve thought about homework, but can’t work up the energy to actually do any.
  5. Despite drinking the contents of a small reservoir over the past 10 days, my skin has the texture and colour of an old dishcloth.
  6. I still can’t talk.

Still – the good points outnumber the bad points. And I’ve got clean hair!!!!!

Thanks for all the kind messages you’ve sent. [Not sure about the ones in Chinese [?], so I rejected those.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

My husband needs to lose 4 kilos in 3 weeks but I don't think I'll recommend this particular treatment to him ;o) I can sympathise with the pulled muscle as I did the same thing with my cough and it certainly hurts. Sorry to say it took several weeks to settle down. Well done to Wensleydale for being a perfect nurse.
