I escaped

Last night I kept the whole house up with my coughing. I tried everything, but as soon as I laid back down in my bed, I coughed and coughed and coughed.

We all watched ‘Diners Drive Ins and Dives’ at 2am and I remained on the sofa sleeping every now and then until 7am.

I’m anxious that I’m due back at work on Monday and have barely left the house for the last couple of weeks. Now I know that my job isn’t physical but it’s a busy job and I like to be on top of things. I don’t want to return and be all flustered.

Today I escaped with the help of dad to Starbucks in Barnes for coffee and cake. It was great to get out for an hour although I felt worn out when I returned home.

My ear is still blocked but I have rested on the sofa instead of in my bed today.

Small steps.

  1. I’m suffering with the snuffles too. I was out of work for 2 days. Today was my first day and I’m exhausted and will probably spend most of the weekend in bed. I wish you a speedy recovery.

    • Thanks Jim, I’m returning to work on Monday after nearly two weeks off. I hope you haven’t got what I had but I wish you a speedy recovery. Lots of drinks and paracetemol worked quite well for me! Pru

  2. Oh Pru! I’m catching with you after having been in a tunnel trying to finish my latest project. You poor thing. You’ve really had a go of it with this one, haven’t you? This sounds like what we had a couple or years ago when the swine flu made an appearance, except my son and I had it a month or two before anyone was calling it that. I hope you make it through the day at work tomorrow and are starting to feel better. Take it slowly and rest when you can. I’m thinking of you.
