I have still not recovered from the walk on Sunday and I have been struck down with the most appalling ladyflu. Naturally I am being very stoical and only talk about my sore throat, (thanks for asking, like swallowing barbed wire) about 70 or 80 times per day.
It started while I was ankle deep in mud on Sunday and has got steadily worse with every passing hour. Unfortunately I am too busy at work to take any time off so I have been forced to travel in rush hour sharing my sneezes with my fellow commuters and shedding snotty hankies behind me. Obviously this makes me very popular. I had to go to a meeting this afternoon which lasted for 3 and a half hours and only managed to get through it by drinking a litre of water and eating an entire packet of cough sweets. I cannot begin to express how sorry I feel for myself.
This also means I have to postpone my new, superfit healthy lifestyle which involves walking a minimum of 10,000 steps a day, running three times a week and eating lots and lots of fruit and vegetables.
I wonder if chocolate is as good for your throat as strepsils?
