We really have had a amazing start to the year, an amazingly sickly start to the year.
Saturday morning I was feeling half human, and was awake early, so headed out to watch the sky change.
It was all down hill from there though, I probably shouldn't have gone out at all but I'm sure the fresh air was good for me.
Mr Sparky, the poor fellow is now up to his third weekend under the weather. He even had to take time off work last week, and before we all start shouting 'man cold', it certainly wasn't one. I know because I was next in the firing line. It is always good to get the reassurance that we can deal with each other in sickness as well as health. Handy that.
I was feeling blah for a lot of the week but Friday I was the horrible coughing, spluttering, blocked sinus with whole head headache, queasy, temperature ridden mess. I didn't get it as bad as Mr Sparky but I think he took it one further by developing bronchitis or something.
I tried begging off work sick but that didn't go down well. I lasted half of my shift and then shifted myself home. I should have stood up for myself a bit more in that case.
Now it is Monday and we are both feeling better but not 100% and I'm off to work tonight, something I might regret.
Hopefully this means we've got the sickness for the year out of the way and can continue on in a healthy form.
In exciting news, family have booked in a visit in a couple of months. Yay!
I am wishing I could be thinking of heading south for a visit soon but I haven't planned anything and my lack of other job means things don't look good for it.
I was pretty happy to have managed a sunrise. They seem to be far too early at the moment. Maybe I am just far too lazy at the moment.
We were talking about how long the days seem at the moment over dinner last night. This was when it was still a bit light at 7:15pm.
Obviously our heads are still stuck back in the shorter part of the year.
I am looking forward to trying to get out of a morning a bit more. I better get my morning person on. That way I can greet the morning with with energy like these pretty fellows.
So, I hope the beginning of your year has been healthier than ours.
Are you an easy sick person or a hard one?
Do you enjoy greeting the morning?
I really do, especially at this time of year when it is the coolest part of the day.
