…but are more than happy to share their lurgies? I had David (aged 9) home from school Monday and Tuesday with a horribubble cold and this afternoon it became apparent that he has generously shared it with me 😦 My head is thumping, my throat is sore, and my sinuses are nicely blocked. No walkies for me today, I’m going to bed with some lemon tea.
Went a little over on points today, using up yesterday’s saved point and going into debt 1 1/2 for tomorrow, that should be easy enough to make up. I’ve cooked a huge batch of the Vegetable and Barley soup from The Really Contented Tummy Cookbook – 16 serves! My serving size seems to be smaller than the book’s so it works out at 1 point per serve, I’ve only had cooking tastes so far but it promises to be scrumptious!
I had a small FLYing triumph today. Usually when I’m in and out of the house all day I tend to look on the 20 – 30 minute blocks of time when I’m home as not long enough to do anything. Today I had a little voice saying “15 minutes” in my head, so I decided to see what I could do. In two 20 minute sessions I transformed my hideously messy kitchen into a merely slightly untidy but clean kitchen. I’m so glad I did it early in the day ’cause there’s no way I could have faced it after the lurgi hit this afternoon.
