as soon as you finish work for a holiday, your body decides to rebel and make you ill. I've been fighting a sore throat, coughing and a swinging temperature for nearly 4 days now and I'm fed up of it. Luckily it seems to be fairly low grade but its lingering and after having a severe viral throat thing at the start of the year that might have been Mumps, I'm not really keen on a repeat performance. Added to the fact that Scotland has been having daytime temperatures of 23-28 celsius over the past week doesn't really help.
I've decided to try and not feel sorry for myself as things are much worse elsewhere in the world and life is otherwise pretty good.
2 good things that happened this week were firstly my cousin Nadine had a baby girl on Tuesday and all is well. The second thing is that today is my birthday. My parents gave me some money which will either go towards some stitching stash or some thing for the new computer. My aunt bought me the DVD of the movie of Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy so I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
