Sore throat

After the last post about mental illness it feels like a very long time since I had a physical illness and here I am feeling very sore and poorly with a sore throat. It came on suddenly on Friday night after I had a very long evening doing a party-plan type party at someone's house and suspect that I caught something from one of the models. The product I was demonstrating was skin care so I was working on people's faces.

Yesterday was completely wiped out whilst today is rather busy from early afternoon. I'm going to be like a Japanese tourist and wear a face mask as I have treatments to do that people are wanting and can only fit in today. What I'd rather do is to curl up and not go anywhere today. I think though that I will text each in a while to give them the choice. I know I would rather cancel than risk bringing unnecessary bugs into the house.

On the plus side, yesterday there was one of those 100 best TV programmes during the day which was about Christmas TV moments. Cue the Christmas tree. Ours is a gorgeous pencil slim tree so not too big or heavy but I had to keep stopping to rest my aching arms - and they still ache. It was a rather nice few hours to put that up and looks gorgeous all decorated though it stands alone without any supporting decorations in the room. Not up to those yet.

I have drunken so much herbal tea and regular tea this past day. At least I am well hydrated.

Joy to the World!

I hope that you're feeling better soon. I had to chuckle as I read your post. I've been drinking glasses of water all day today to get rid of cystitus. I think it's on its way out (!) I don't mind drinking water, but when I have to is a different story.

I've nearly finished my work for the day and I'll be decorating my tree.

Look after yourself

Thanks Anji - here I am 5 days later and still crud. Mr Doris has finally succumbed. Oh dear.

I hope you're better by now. I had mine last week.

Happy Christmas to you and your family.

Thanks Anji and I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I finally saw the GP this week and he reckons I'm on the mend and no point having the antibiotics. I'm still coughing at times. Not much fun but Christmas was great. x
