coughs, sneezes, ribbon and wrapping paper


Well, I've been ill with a throat and chest infection the last week or so (now there's a cheery Christmassy note to begin on) but the doctor prescribed me some new meds yesterday and I swear they're kicking in already. So I've been a recluse the last few days, sitting by my Christmas tree, too weak to even munch on a mince pie. And that's the way life is isn't it? Just when your diary has reached full capacity and you should be darting here there and everywhere around town you're feeling like crap and sat on your settee under a blanket with your pajamas on. So you roll with it, wrap a couple of presents, watch Love Actually (suggested by Emma), listen to the She And Him Christmas album on repeat (think I may have OD'd on that one now) and wait to feel better again. 


And though in a prefect world I'd be busy as a bee in a mad Christmas social whirl I can be grateful for a cosy chair by the fire, a very lovely family and some twinkly fairy lights. 


Hope you're not letting the winter coughs and sneezes dampen your Christmas spirit! XXX
