Woke up around 6am, feeling slightly better than yesterday, but still not that great. I’ve got a bad flu/cold – have had it for a week. Luckily I manage to get a reasonable nights sleep. Downstairs for the normal routine – dogs out, tea made, computer time.
I don’t think I’ve been drinking enough water lately and read that you should have 80 oz. I found this great cup Kevin had been given at a conference and it’s 20 oz. So four of these a day….
I didn’t feel like proper food so made a chocolate protein shake for breakfast.
I helped Chrsity set up the TV so she could play on the PS3.
Not to0 many photos of the girls as they spent most of the day playing on their computers or watching TV. Amy is also unwell but Christy is okay.
After breakfast, and more time online, I had my shower and got dressed, then got on with my morning jobs of emptying the dishwasher and feeding the animals. I went out to check on the chooks and collect some eggs.
They have started laying well again and we’re back to getting 2-3 a day (not bad for 3 yr old chickens in the middle of Winter)
I then decided to clean the guinea pig cage as it was way overdue. Here’s Jasmine – our only remaining piggy at over 6 yrs old – who needs her nails trimmed.
I was feeling quite a bit better so made a snack to have while writing out my grocery list.
Then left the girls at home and headed to the supermarket.
Unfortunately by the time I got back I was feeling horrible again. Still I managed to get the groceries put away and hang out the washing.
I also picked up the back yard so the dogs have a clean area. It’s amazing how quickly the house falls apart when you’re out of action for a week.
I was glad to sit down again and have some lunch (and cup number 2 of water).
After lunch I did the last thing I needed to get done today – I vacuumed the floor
Just a bit better don’t you think.? 🙂
Even though it was only 3.30pm I decided to go have a bath. Christy had gone to the park to play with a new friend she made yesterday and Amy was watching TV. The hardest part of a bath is choosing which Lush bath product to use. Today I went with the comfort bubble bar.
I took in cup number 3, a towel to dry my hands and a book to read (by one of my favourite YouTubers). Bailey is always close by as he loves to drink bath water. Lucky the lush products are made from natural ones.
After my bath I got into my PJS (it’s okay to that at 4pm when you’re feeling yuck 🙂 ) and painted my toe nails.
The remainder of the afternoon was spent on the couch, painting my finger nails, using copious amounts of tissues and feeling sorry for myself. Kevin came home around 6pm, with the start of a cold. I made us an easy dinner of Quorn Dippers, sweet potato and corn. Which we ate while watching the first Harry Potter movie (we’re going to watch them all in the lead up to seeing the latest, and last, in Gold Class in a few weeks.
Oh, doesn’t Harry look so young and so cute?
We all started to crash around 8.30 so stopped the movie (to finish tomorrow) and tidied up downstairs before heading up to bed. I managed to finish the book I’m reading before heading off to snoozy land.
