Speaking of ruins

Foggy and damp. Water on the ground suggests it may have rained in the night, although I must have missed it. I do have an excuse, and I only wish the excuse is that I was fast asleep.

After a night of coughing and vomitting, tummy pains and headaches, a night when the Calpol didn't work, the Paracodina ditto and the Ventolin barely, the nurse-(always)-on-duty is a bit frayed around the edges.

Thursday is cancelled.

You poor thing. Not the flu I hope. I'm up late waiting for my son from college to come home. Wish I could go to bed as his train won't get in till 2 a.m. Rest well today.

Thanks, Sonia...I'm sure you have had your fair share of this -- it's the lack of sleep that gets to me. I barely get enough as it is!

LadyFi said...

Oh, I hate ruined nights like this! I hear you about the lack of sleep... even the brightest day is dulled when you don't have enough...

Hugs!

Who is ill? you are ill? so sorry. You have my deepest sympathy and Colin's. He's been coughing and sneezing for more than a week now.

The best remedy for coughing: Two lemons, three teaspoons of honey, boiling and a good amount of tequila.

Louise said...

I'll take the tequila!

Christine Gram said...

Ah ha! The last line cracked me up. I've had nights like that. I hope you all get some good sleep soon.

May your immunity system build the necessary antibodies through this illness and you all be in perfect health tout de suite! Wishing you a solid night's sleep to refresh!!
