The 26th of September.
Ughhh. So much phlegm. Bad night, full of coughing, sneezing, bleugh. This morning I wrote up a blog post, then it was time to try on more jumpers. Yes, more jumpers. I don’t know when this saga with my arm will end and Zara have an abundance of large-sleeved clothing so I’m taking advantage. I do at least know that I will be getting a better compression garment on Monday – Jemma from St. Giles rang and said she’d spoken to Andrew, who says it’s fine to have one, so maybe one that fits properly will actually help?
This afternoon, I’ve been crocheting the first of my little wintery chaps, Woody the Pine Cone. He is adorable, but he still needs some arms.
It seems Christine is poorly too. She is also on the Strepsils and doing all the coughs. Hopefully she is tolerating it better than I am. Stupid germs! I’m pretty sure it’s just a virus, not bacterial, as the phlegm that’s come up hasn’t been green and it can’t be the pneumonia again because then the phlegm was too viscous to move.
I miss Dean a lot today. I keep expecting to see his name pop up on my phone screen, thinking of things I want to tell him. Maybe it’s finally hitting me.

Another bad sleep, but I’ll just have to expect that while I’m ill. My throat was less sore, but that’s probably because I was awake in the night and had Strepsils.
I think my nose is less runny today, but the coughing is much worse and more painful because all my ribs and muscles ache. Christine went home at lunchtime today so she is obviously not feeling great either.
More crochet and TiVo. I finished Woody and started on Simon the Snowman, who currently looks like a tooth. The wool I had ordered to make Chloe’s seal came today so I can do that next. Can’t believe I had run out of light grey.
I had a break from the crochet when we went to collect the kitties from the very after their neutering, chipping and vaccinations. Henrietta is sulking but the kittens are fine. We’ve got a couple coming to see them tomorrow and there’s no way they won’t fall in love with them so I’ll probably have to say goodbye soon.
