The best laid plans ......

Oh well , Wednesday was not good after all . Not sure whether it was partly the fault of the higher dose of BP tabs or not but shortly after my last post I felt faint and giddy and never quite recovered so went back to bed and texted boss. As the day rolled on I got worse - shivery , achy coughing and sleepy so rang surgery - only managed to talk to triage nurse who told me ( she must have a pretty strong crystal ball is all I can say !!!!) that I had a virus and it wasn't the tablets and to rest and take plenty of fluids - having relayed this to boss , I stayed in bed . Felt worse Thursday and stayed off yesterday. Dave had to pick Ellie up early fromn school as she was sick - triggered she said by watching her friend spit a small pony into her bag !!!
I am still coughing and my BP is low . Ellie is also coughing and Dave still has his cough. Jamie told me that he and girlfriend Rosie have decided to have a break for a bit as she 'needs some space''' Ah , well , 'young love'.
Managed to get a bit of sewing done yesterday as my eyes didn't feel as if they where aching from the eyelids in.
Playing catch up on computer now as you can see.
I found my cashpoint card under the computer desk ( I cancelled it last Thursday as I thought I'd lost it and reordered one which still hasn't arrived)
I might have won the eurolottery last night if I'd got my numbers in in time - ah well c'est la vie- at least I'm registerd for tonight !
Dave's away at hockey so I'll crack on with the stitching.
Appetite is minimal as my taste seems to have gone awol so I may have managed to lose a tad although I wouldn't recommend it as a diet.
The weather is forecast to get bad tonight with gale force winds and rain then temperature drop from tomorrow. There's loads I want to do but just can't get up the enthusiasm to do it.
Got my letter from The Sampler Guild with details of the retreat at Muncaster in March - really looking forward to it .

I hate it when these nurses reckon they are doctors! That bug is just horrid - I had it before Christmas and my dh called the doctor out on a Saturday and she came (miracles of miracles) and I was given antibiotics - if you are coughing up green stuff you have what I had and it won't go without them. I do hope you feel better soon. Lots of Love Patti xxx

Hope you're feeling better soon. I'm getting exhausted watching the little hamster on your blog!

Lindsay sends her best wishes to Jasper.

Thanks Raph - just got the cough now.
Thanks Patti - not really coughing anything up - it's just irritating. You have to fight for an appointment at our surgery first past the receptionist , then the triage nurse - if you finally get to see a Dr the surgeries empty - wonder why !!!!
Hi Barry , thanks for visiting - if you feed the hamster by clicking it calms down a bit , Jazz's settled by (on !!) my feet at the moment - the winds really picked up outside and sounds quite wild.
Thanks for visiting Maggie - got a good book and my sewing and settling in till work on Monday.
Thanks for the hugs Clare just need to shake this cough now
