Day 2425 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The head cold edition #lovinlifelinky

This post is brought to you from my bed.



Like most people. I don't cope well with cold and flu.  I really dislike that feeling of phlegm and gunk and sinus and a scratchy throat and the hoarse voice and the cough that brings stuff up and the nasty breath.

 It doesn't help when it's windy and grey and raining and cold outside.

It also doesn't help when the house is crowded with people and dogs who are refusing to go outside (how rude!) which makes me feel a little claustrophobic.

I'm saying a lot of "ands" aren't I!  Yep, well, I'm whining so it comes with the territory.



Anyway, today is not about whining, it's about Lovin' Life so today I give you the head cold edition.

Today I am loving that I have a king size bed with a lovely warm doona and a fluffy comfy blanket.

I'm also loving that I have a TV in my room with a Foxtel connection which allows me to watch movies.

I've got a book beside my bed and a pile of unfinished magazines.

There's my new Samsung phone of course with angry birds and yahtzee to muck around with.

Plus each member of my family comes in to keep me company from time to time and watch some TV with me.

Oh, and there's also some pretty decent painkillers available for when it all gets a bit too much.

So while I have a severe case of man flu and a possible case of cabin fever, there is still plenty to love.

I'm due to head to the movies this morning and then to lunch on a family date.  I will need to see how I am after a shower, some vitamins and a cup of tea before we determine if that's going to happen.  Coughing all over people isn't a good look.

What about you?

What are you lovin' about life today?

    1. I did end up going. Even managed lunch and a drive by one of our city damns to watch it overflow. Cold tablets have worn off now. Back to bed ...

  5. Hope you are on the mend and feeling better soon. I'm exhausted after a night of no sleep. Surprisingly, not due to the teen sleep over here last night. That went off without a hitch. More the attempted break in, while we were all home (& the sleep over girls being really loud) earlier in the night.

    1. What!! That's terrible. Someone tried to break in while you were home? Scary!

  6. Ugh... I have to admit I ran home to my mother's last year when I had the flu. I battled it for a while but mine lasted for ages. I'm hoping the 2016 strain isn't as virulent! I did - however - have a flu shot this year.

    It sounds as if you've got everything you need, so take care and rest up!

    1. I haven't had a flu shot for years. Might be time I start given this darn ageing process and all.

    1. Thanks Di. I'm not one to lie around usually and I get cabin fever, but after a morning out I am now very happy to be crawling back into bed.

  11. Cold and flus are the worst. The rest part we need to get over them is such a hard thing to do these days. I hope it passes soon for you.

  12. Hope you get well soon! I hate cold and flus...I had the flu shot so no flu yet this year but of course, it doesn't prevent colds. I'm still coughing a week later. Sigh!
