Boy did it get me good!
And I wasn't strong, calm, and elegant in the face of it. Nope, not at all. I was a grisly mess. I demanded attention, ordered hot lemon and honeys left right and centre, expected my tissues to be topped up at all times....what a nightmare.
After feeling pretty rotten on Wednesday evening, things quickly got worse. No sleep on Wednesday night meant a tired, grumpy, snotty start to Thursday morning, and by Thursday lunch time, my nose was a continuous stream, my head throbbed, and work sent me home!
I took Friday off and due to a lot of lounging about, watching Sex and the City and getting a manicure/pedicure from the BF's wonderful sister by Saturday morning I was feeling much better. Oh apart from the HUGE coldsore that appeared sometime between Friday 10pm and Saturday 8am. (It really hasn't been my week...)
Luckily, I am on the mend and now only have to blow my nose once an hour, and have had a lovely, relaxed weekend which consisted of....
- Booking flights to NZ!
- Coffee at THIS gorgeous cafe on Saturday morning
- Watching the new Alice in Wonderland (seen it? what are your thoughts?)
- Sushi and cocktails at my FAVOURITE restaurant, D-Fly
- Winning Trivial Pursuit
- Hot Chocolate and Salmon Bagel at Moka for lunch on Sunday
- Buying SCRABBLE and playing all afternoon
I'm so pleased I'm feeling better and this cold didn't hang about, because although it was just a cold, I really felt miserable with it! Fingers crossed my coldsore will be gone soon too, and then I will be right as rain.
Busy week ahead, starting with a netball game with a new team tomorrow night - hope it goes well.
Off to have some home-made Mississippi Mud Pie for pudding, yum yum!
Hope you have all had wonderful weekends and haven't been dealt Autumn lurgies!
What did you get up to? x
