General diary entries


My phone has recorded a grand total of 1548 steps since last Wednesday!
The reason?
I have literally been curled up on the sofa watching TV or sleeping…. or at least trying to as my cough rears it’s ugly head every time I lay down.

I think I’m over the hump now and literally just feel like I’ve got a bad cold.
I feel like my head is in a bucket of water and I’m a bit congested, but it’s liveable!!

Typical, this was supposed to be a good week.
After a really busy week last week, this week, I had a fairly clear week.
The week should have gone something like this…..
Monday – Drop my final course documents at Uni.
Tuesday – Short shift placement in theatres.
Wednesday – Day off, maybe the cinema.
Thursday – A short late shift.
Friday – A night out celebrating a friends birthday at Esquires Music Venue.
Saturday – A meal out with the hubby and kids.
Sunday – Relax a little and maybe go to the cinema.

I was really looking forward to this week.
So what went wrong?

When I woke up on Tuesday, I felt like I had an annoying little irritation on my chest. It made me cough occasionally but I felt fine and got through the day with no problems.


By 10pm that evening, I felt rough and went to bed early.
When I woke up the next day I could barely move.
Hot sweats, shivers, congestion, hacking cough and when I was laying down I sounded like I had popping candy in my mouth.
There was no way I could go to work the next day so I had to call and tell them I wouldn’t make it.

I made the decision to sleep on the sofa that day.
My husband is on a pile of medication that suppresses his immune system at the moment and with pinched nerves in his neck, the last thing he needs to deal with is a hacking cough!

I have been on the sofa now for 4 nights.
All plans for the week have been cancelled.
No party at Esquires.
No dinner out with the family.
Even the chinese I ordered on Friday evening was disappointing. I just didn’t enjoy it because of this bloody cold!

Anyway, the plan is to go back to work tomorrow.
It’s only a short shift.
I have another short shift in theatres on Tuesday. This is a placement day that I CANNOT miss. If I do, I have to make the hours up in my own time and at this stage in the game, I don’t want to miss anything!!

So! Apologies to my work colleagues tomorrow.
I may be a bear with a sore head. I’ll be there physically but I don’t know about mentally. Be kind to me.

And how was your week?
