Occasional Brilliant Flashes of Sunlight.
Feeling a bit better, my nose is not running nor have I got a thumping headache or an added tightness round my chest.
Nice to be rid of that 'I feel like I'm dying' sensation, good to not have to be taking paracetamol regularly through the day.
Think it will be this time next week before all the symptoms of the cold have really gone and I am ok.
Nice that I can breathe better today, it was dreadful trying to breathe through my mouth and eat or drink.
Have never had to give this much thought before, what a nasty shock when I had such problems breathing and swallowing at the same time.
The only way to cope is to do everything slowly, which is no big deal, but did take me a moment to get the hang of it.
Weird to have to swallow so carefully but the alternative was not pleasant, noticed that getting a drop of liquid in the lung takes ages to clear.
Sleeping was also not so easy either, again breathing was not easy, could only take small breaths through my nose before I would have to breathe though my mouth.
Getting very fed up of hearing about Cheryl and Ashley Cole on radio stations and reading about them in the newspapers.
These shock horror stories about what celebrities do when they are away from home such as John Terry, Tiger Woods and now Ashley Cole really are so boring.
Shock horror young over paid and over pampered stars have sex with willing participants.
Who cares as far as I am concerned all I am interested in is the sport and not what they do in their own time.
Golf to me is not a sport that I have any real interest in, not like football, used to love playing hockey at school.
Playing in a team, operating well and being able to use the skills and abilities of the members of the team is what makes team sport so interesting.
Liked that aspect in my work on the Service Desk and at the Help Desk both jobs were as part of a team.
Good to know who your fellow team members are and what their qualities are, the team now is smaller.
But nonetheless effective, I know that Richie will always find a solution to most problems that is very comforting indeed.
Love to see him look at things very holistically and come up with solutions, this is so very reassuring for me.
Going to stop now so that I can find pictures and then popst this piece for today, nearly forgot to mention that my friend Toos will be around for a quick visit of 30 minutes.
Be nice to see Toos at 15.30.
The weather is changeable today, mainly grey and misty with occasional brilliant flashes of sunlight.
