#TheOrdinaryMoments – A Wasted Weekend

Apologies for the backdated post – I was intending to write this post yesterday (as dated) but I spent the entirety of my weekend bed-bound with what I first assumed to be a nasty cold but soon realised was fully-fledged flu. 

Talk about feeling like a wet rag, I literally flopped on my bed and other than reaching for a drink, the thermometer, painkillers or a bucket I was no use to anyone.

After almost two days under a duvet, I finally got up, had a wash and got myself dressed. Though, by the time that I’d slapped on some foundation and had wobbled my way daintily down the stairs, I felt as if I’d run a marathon!

#TheOrdinaryMoments - A Wasted Weekend

It’s been seven years since I last had the flu, I clearly remember being pregnant with E and unable to take anything to stop or to slow the symptoms. Thankfully this time around I was able to ease things a little with a cocktail of paracetamol, Lemsip, and Beechams, still it’s really knocked me for six!

Having spent a further twenty-four hours resting and recuperating, I think (I hope) that I might just be ready to return to the land of the living come tomorrow.

Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    Oh no, flu is the pits. I hope you are feeling much better now. I can’t have the flu jab so I make sure that all my family do x
