I have the lurgy and I feel terrible. For the past few weeks I’ve been feeling a bit ‘off’ – like my body has been fighting off a bug or a virus. It was doing a great job until last night, when I started with a sore throat… today it hurts to talk, I’m tired and I’m getting snottier by the hour. My inability to stop and relax is being challenged to no end as my mind wants to keep me going, and my body says no. The weather is lovely and I’m stuck indoors… there is LITERALLY NOTHING WORSE. Ok, so that’s a bit dramatic but I hate being stuck on the sofa on days like today. I want to go play in the sun.
I’ve blogged about this before. The only none medicinal thing I have to hand that can make me feel better when I have the lurgy is lemon and honey in boiling water. I’ve done my research and although it doesn’t actually make me better/cure my lurgy… it soothes a sore throat and helps with the symptoms of being full of cold.
Lucky for me, being ill means that Dan is in change of the kitchen. I’ve asked for either cottage pie or Italian meatballs for tea so I’ll see what he comes up with.
Anyhow, that’s all you’re getting from me today. I’m off to sip on honey and lemon and watch trashy Sunday afternoon TV.
