Under the Weather.

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?

  1. Pasta is my comfort food (or toast if feeling really off colour.)
    Hope you feel better soon. I think you might have overdone things a bit.
    Take care.

  2. Sorry to hear that you've not been well. You did well to carry on as normal almost. The mackerel on toast looks very tasty. I might try it myself. My favourite comfort food has to be beef stew and dumplings, although not if I'm feeling unwell. Then it would probably be hot milk and crumpets or toast. I'm glad you're feeling better again. The Santa run looks fun.

  3. So glad the outdoors improved your Under the weather feelings.
    Comfort food...sometimes ice cream and pasta will helps the gloominess most of the time.

  4. So happy you seem to be on the upswing now. Nothing worse than a miserable cold! You're looking great with Santa! Oh my comfort food is always chocolate chip cookies...yum.
