Morning all - lovely sunny day here - am going to give myself 2 hrs off from my 'to do list' to go and do some tidying outside - need some fresh air.
Best wishes to Mr & Mrs C for tomorrow - hope all goes well and hope the lesson goes ok too Wonky - hope the pre Christmas traffic isn't too bad. Had to queue to get into Waitrose car park yesterday - 1st December - more than 3 weeks till Christmas - not a market day - at lunchtime when it's usually quiet - what on earth is going on?
Re Clari's cough. I have had a dry tickly cough since - err - July.
Had a really horrible virusey thing then - a bit like a cold with really bad sore throat & a bit achey but no snotty nose. Really bad chesty cough for about 2 weeks which slowly dwindled to a dry tickly one.
Then at the end of September (just as the cough was subsiding) I had exactly the same virus thing again and yet another touch of it a couple of weeks ago.
It's flipping exhausting cough cough cough all the time - and things like phone calls have to be carefully planned with a glass of water by my side.
I have been to the doctors and had the full spectrum of chest x-rays, blood tests etc (God bless the NHS - all done the day after my GP consultation) and there doesn't appear to be anything horrible going on.
I have bags of sucking sweets in every room and handbag, boxes of herbal teas, and honey and lemon and just keep trying to soothe & control it. It is slowly getting better but, meantime, it is very, very irritating.
