Man flu

Today is the first day since the 5th January that I have felt good enough to get up and make early morning drinks. It feels great to feel almost human again. I had a bit of a blip and went downhill on Thursday and Friday, so took yesterday off and rested. It has paid dividends. I still have a bit of a headache but it's like the fog is lifting and can think again. Now I can get on with my OU work, the course I have to write, and catch up with all the bits and pieces that I haven't done for what feels like ages.

The sad thing is that my Beloved now seems to have it. He started with the headache yesterday and is not feeling so good today and looks very peely wally. Sadly plastic soup is not his thing and so it will just take time and resting for him to get better.

It's a strange thing though, as in this house there seems to be a bit of a juxtaposition. When we get ill it's me that gets the man version while he always seems to get off quite lightly, so I'm pretty sure it won't be too long before he feels human again.
