Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been getting some thoughts & feelings, exasperations and the odd happy moment down on the blog which helps my sanity and, I hope, provides a little entertaining read for you for a couple of minutes!

Right now I am mostly concentrating on getting through a rocky financial patch which I really hope will be cleared (all being well) by the end of Summer 2013. In the meantime I need to concentrate on continuing to do well in my "new" job (actually got it in Sept 2011 but it still feels new!) and living my life as frugally as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and if you leave me an encouraging comment, it'll make my day. :-)

Can't Afford to be Poorly!

Evening all, I hope you're all feeling better than I am right now.

Started with a dry, sore throat in the middle of last week which has not got any better and now my nose has started to stream, I'm sneezing and coughing too.  I had aches & pains yesterday (slightly eased off now with the help of a hot lemon drink earlier) and generally right now I feel a bit crap.

Really want to get better soon....can't afford sore throat sweets, soft tissues for avoiding a red raw nose and all the rest of it!  I do have a throat spray left over from about a year ago which I am eking out and luckily I have lots of paracetamol in the medicine tin which I can just have with hot cordial if the aches come back.  My nose will have to put up with my cotton handkerchiefs and a bit of lotion rubbed in should it start to chafe! 

Have drunk so much today to try and keep my throat from driving me mad and just finished off a little ice lolly as well!  I am not sure I'll be at work tomorrow especially as I work in a hospital and very near to a ward full of elderly patients who've had falls and broken limbs.  I am sure the last thing that is required is a load of germs making them feel worse.

If I am off tomorrow, if I am not sleeping, I am going to be taking stock of a few things I think and looking at ways to improve certain areas of my life.  The work is sorted (touch wood) but life's never a smooth path, there are always bumps and potholes along the way from one thing or another aren't there? 

Bye for now all.



  1. Oh dear - sorry to hear that you're not well. It sounds like you're doing all the right things already but do take it steady. Hope that you feel better soon. Jx

  2. Look after yourself. Hope you're better soon.
