I am ill

Last week whilst on holiday in France, I fell ill. When either Biscuit Boy or I go on holiday it seems that one of us is ill. Last time, it was his turn. This turn it's mine.. although cup cake started it all off by coming down with a sore throat the day we left for our trip.

So, I managed a few healthy, germ-free days, and then I came down with a horrendous sore throat .. followed by runny nose, achey head etc and did I have any meds with me ? No. Well, Nurofen, good for a headache.. but not much else cold-wise. So, I spent the rest of the week feeling OK and then not OK. The sore throat subsided but as me and a million other asthma/chest-problem people will know the illness 'moved south'. So, a sore throat and sniff turned into a lovely cough and wheeze, but I've had worse... So then I start sleeping badly keeping Biscuit Boy awake with my alternate coughing/snoring routine. Just what you need on holiday.

Now we're back, so I'm back on the blog. The car journey back was fine and yesterday was Ok too, I was still coughing and blowing the nose, but I figured I was over the worst and not so wheezy, so I went back to work today. BIG mistake ! Had the awful sick-inside feeling and felt weak 'as a kitten', blurry-eyed. ew... Lasted it out, and after all that, made the doctor's appointment for tomorrow ...


  1. Hello, Cookie Girl, and welcome to wonderful, frustrating world of blogging!
