On The Third Day Of Christmas….

On the Third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me…
Three French Hens, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear tree.

Well good morning once again world and thank you for taking another look at the WBFM’s blog….

Not much has happened for me to report on as I have spent the past few days feeling pretty ropey with this cold to be honest. I have managed to keep it at bay for a couple of days by taking the mandatory paracetamols which appears to be the magic ingredient of any cold relief but last night after taking the tablets, I have to confess I felt little or no relief from my snotty nose and body tiredness. Regardless of this though, I still got showered and took my germs for an outing to visit some friends, where there was more eating and drinking available at my fingertips, although I didn’t indulge in the latter.

I did however indulge in the former and wow! What a former it was!
My friend really knows how to put a buffet together. It was a total smorgasbord of bits and pieces. There were cheeses, cooked ham, roast potatoes, prawn bites (heavenly!) pickled eggs and onions, pork belly squares (oh my word!) and odds and nik-naks of all shapes and sizes to fill the tiniest crevice of the tummy.

After these delights we sat and put the world to rights, telling stories and forgetting past problems, doing what we should have done last night had I not had to leave early because of feeling a bit under the weather.
Suffice to say, I was soon forgetting my ailment but as ever the end of the evening came all too quickly after a night full of laughter and fun and it was soon time for Archie and I to come away home and try to get some rest ourselves.

Yesterday I didn’t manage to get my walk in but today I think I shall try a short version and see how that goes because writing this, I feel a good deal better so am hoping that this feeling is one that sticks…!

Thats all there is for today I’m afraid because due to a goodly amount of downtime, I find myself with little to say as I haven’t even had the inclination to turn on the TV and see what is happening in the world.

So ’till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

      Thanks Doc, I have done exactly that.
      I slept late (VERY late 9.45 am!!) then I got up and pottered about. Once everything was sorted I took Archie for a walk on a well used route. This would normally take 40 minutes but today was over an hour as I struggled. If I am honest the last half a mile was a bit too much but I managed it and have no ill effects.
      I have spend the rest of the afternoon doing a few little jobs that were not much in the way of exertion so were enjoyable for sure.
      Here’s to my continuing improvement….!

    I found myself suffering from strep throat the day after Christmas. Ugh! It is horrible to be I’ll but especially at the holidays. Here’s hoping we are on the mend in order to bring in the new year right!
