I was glad to get to our day off, as am feeling somewhat geriatric: sore throat started on Saturday along with aching joints, and by Sunday morning they had been joined by runny eyes and nose and cough. 😦
However, I was taking the service, and as I’d put it all together with a powerpoint and had been preparing with children’s clubs for several weeks, it wasn’t something I could just hand over to somebody else so I could stay in bed and feel sorry for myself 😉
I got through it OK with prayer and paracetamol, and actually it seemed to go well! The kids stayed engaged and enjoyed it, then off they all went for their day out. Rosie handed me a Locket in the middle of the service, which I sucked while the kids were doing a king-sized collage (11 ft long, and no, I don’t know what it is in that foreign measurement we’re supposed to be using). I staggered home for a cuppa and to mollycoddle myself ;D
Anyway, today I decided that the cold would probably benefit for a walk in the sun, so Hub and I tootled off to Hanbury Hall (National Trust) where we could get a cup of tea (with paracetamol …) and the biggest decision I had to make was, should I have cake with my tea, or pudding with my lunch??? :.
Then we had an elderly totter from Hanbury to Jinney Ring, which I’ve enthused about before – a scrummy lunch and paradise pudding – well, they do say you should feed a cold :))
We were intrigued to find maybe a dozen skewbald horses tethered along the verges of the road. I looked around to see if I could see any travellers’ caravans, but there were none in sight … :??:
Then back home, posting packages en route to family who have forgotten things from last weekend’s visit, or need things from their boxes in our attic … :**:
Hot and sticky here. I’ve opened all the windows. Joints still aching. Wonder if I can get out of staff meeting tomorrow … |-|
