Hay-fever!

Sneezing, itchy eyes, coughing, I hate hay-fever. And it’s been dry and windy today…. I’m really suffering, I took my tablets and used a spray, but it’s warm tonight and I want a window open.

The forecast is for very high pollen levels because its being broken up by the wind and making it smaller apparently. That means more can be inhaled and can affect sufferers more. The hay-fever season is at its height and the weather has conspired to make things worse with a lot of grass (usually Timothy grass) shedding pollen at the same time.

Sorry for the awful cartoon, I just wanted to express what was happening.

One hour!

That’s how much sleep I got last night. My hubby has a cold and was coughing and snoring. He hurt his leg a week ago and can’t get comfortable. I think I’m having another attack of gout as my feet and hands hurt. I couldn’t get comfortable and as I’ve cut down on the central heating it means the bedroom is cold at night. A fight over the duvet ensued. So I came downstairs and read for a couple of hours. I knew I was supposed to get up and go somewhere. That didn’t help. In the end I fell asleep at about 9am then woke up at 10am. I should have been out at the meeting. In the end I gave up and sent my apologies. I went back to sleep at about midday and woke up just after 3pm. Another night of insomnia! Is it any wonder that I fall asleep in the day!

Showery skies

There was a very heavy rain shower just before my friend and I went out for our afternoon walk. I always wear a mask when I walk even though we are socially distanced. Today I was glad I did as a couple of people (without masks), were coughing as they walked past. My friend noticed I was holding my breath and I explained that I’m always wary of people coughing, or jogging and I will hold my breath for a few seconds. I even notice if the wind is blowing from the cougher towards me.

On a nicer note, the skies were washed clean by the rain and wind. I tried to take photos of the sunset, and although it appeared quite bright the colours really show up in my pictures. X

Coughing and spluttering

_20191107_235110

Yesterday, at choir practice I started with a tickly cough. One of those ones you get sometimes when you hold a note for too long. But then I started wheezing… Lovely… Now this morning the coughing, sneezing, and spluttering has started. I hope I’m not in for a bad bug or anything. I’ve got stuff to do, people to see as they say. X

This picture of me indicates how muzzy headed I feel. Now you know. X
