Tuesday, December 3
Last Wednesday, for no apparent reason I felt very lethargic and quite low. On Thursday I was craving for a chip butty with lots of butter and soft white bread. I should have known I was going down with a cold.
By Thursday night I knew, so on Friday had a good long session on the beach with Bing and dosed myself up with Day Nurse and went to bed where I slept for most of the day. Every 4 hours I would take my tablets, as stated on the packet.
Jon and I, together with a group of neighbours were all going out for a meal, so I wanted to feel my best.
The meal was a great disappointment and we didn't stay late.
Saturday saw me up early as I was marshalling for the Great Santa Run, raising funds for a local hospice.
The fresh air did wonders and I really enjoyed the day. You can read about it here,
On Sunday we had a great walk on the beach - I definitely think the outdoors is the place to be when unwell!
On Monday I was looking through some cookery books and came across on of my all time favourite snacks. Tinned Mackerel on Toast. For the first time in nearly a week I had a genuine appetite and have had 3 similar meals since.
I was so looking forward to eating it I just remembered to take a photo before I finished off the lot!
Perfect comfort food......what's yours?

Prior to our decorating project, the hall looked like this.
Now it looks like this.
We went with a grey carpet.
The landing before.....
A blue carpet in the main bedroom.
Colours used - Farrow & Ball Strong White for landing and hallway walls. Pavillion Grey for wall above radiator in hall. This can't be seen really in photograph 2 but the different shade can be just made out. We are waiting for the radiator to be returned from the sand blasting process and then we will finish it off with a mirror I spotted!
Watch this space!

The tea day I organised was a great success. Thanks to the lovely friends I have we produced some fantastic cakes and it looks as though we will raise getting on for £200 for Cancer Research. The cakes that were not sold are now in our freezer and we'll do it all again in December. Friends also made jams and donated raffle prizes.
