No blog yesterday? Well, there was nothing much to report. I had a good nights sleep. I discovered a good sleeping position that meant minimal coughing and nose leakage (sorry!)
Since on Thursday I was sent home at 3pm and told not to come back until Monday, I had arranged a reliever to look after my babies for the day. I watched bad tv for most of the morning and went to the doctor. Diagnosis of hay fever that turned into a sinus and chest infection. That explains why I didn't feel that bad this week; It was only hay fever until the infection kicked in. I am on broad, strong, antibiotics for 10 days and steroids for 10 days. The steroids aren't too strong, so I'm not expecting a gain, but I may not lose anymore until I am off them.
After the doctor I had a naughty lunch from the bakery. I wanted a cream donut and I was gonna have one. Then I slept for 4 hours. I woke up, relocated to mums bed (she gets more channels on her TV) and watched TV and dozed for another couple of hours. I was so sick I just wanted to sleep so I didn't have to deal with feeling so terrible. My plan was to sleep until I was better.
I was supposed to take my boyfriend our for his birthday dinner, but I was so sick he offered to pick up burgers. I opted for the grilled chicken tenders and chips as a slightly better option.
Even after all that napping I was still ready for bed at 9.30pm. I managed to stay awake until nearly 11, since there was something on that I really wanted to watch, but I was napping in the ads. I still slept all night, and didn't wake up until the boyfriends alarm went off around 8am.
So, that was my sick day.
Today I am feeling much better. I'm still snotty and coughing but not as much as I have been. It is the boyfriends birthday, so I picked up his birthday cupcake and surprised him at work. I picked up a mini cupcake for myself (they are 2 bites, 1 if you're really keen) and they gave me 1 extra for free, so I had a little treat today! We went out for lunch, visited his parents and then came home to watch some TV and have a quiet afternoon. He is off out with the boys tonight, and it sounds suitably boring and geeky, so I'm staying home. Quiet night with mum, which is just what I need.
