Sorry I didn’t post anything this weekend, my laptop fan broke and it was off being fixed. I haven’t done a kind of chat style post yet, so as I have been a bit unorganised and don’t have any content to post yet, I thought I would just update you on how I am felling today – which is crap haha!
In general I am really enjoying life at the moment apart from right now I have this annoying cold taking hold of me, turning the nasal tap on as well as blocking it at the same time and draining me of all my energy. I think it was just waiting to happen after August having been such a nonstop busy month and me not giving my body enough time to recuperate maybe.
So yesterday morning I started to feel a bit under the weather and could have done with an early night, however my housemates had planned a dinner and film evening. Anthony and Roop had cooked dinner and invited some friends over too so when I got home from work at around 8pm there was 7 of us sitting down to a yummy Indian/Lebanese dinner which was then followed by a lovely evening chatting and playing games instead of watching a movie. It ended up being 1am before we said goodnight to each other which was far too late for me because as the evening progressed and my nose got stuffier I knew I was definitely in for a full blown cold. I really should have gone to bed at 11 at the latest as I knew my body needed rest but I was having so much fun in really good company that I decided to not pay attention to my body.
Well only getting 5-6hs sleep definitely didn’t help because today I feel terrible. Nevertheless I have had a lovely day off so far. Jessica, Roop, Anthony and myself continued last nights socialising by having brunch together and playing more games, Code Names and The Settlers of Catan being the favourites. Then all of a sudden it was already 3.30pm and we all got up to get some work done and have a bite of lunch. I cleaned the house a bit, put a wash on and now I am writing this blog post. It’s not exactly been a productive day, but a much needed chilled one which has been perfect with me not feeling well. Sadly I am missing yoga tonight however, I just don’t feel up for it and want an early night to rest my body and catch up on sleep.
The one thing that has really pissed me off today though is the timing of my cold! Tomorrow my choir is backing four-time Brit Classical Award winner Russell Watson at the Gala Theatre in Durham and with this cold I won’t be able to participate – argh! I mean there is no way as I can hardly blow my nose on stage every five minutes! I am so annoyed to be missing this opportunity! I am popping the cold and flu pills and have been drinking so much tea to stay hydrated and help flush out the cold I am running to the toilet every two minutes aha; but sadly I don’t think that will improve my cold enough for me to be able to participate tomorrow evening – I’m absolutely gutted!
Anyway, I’m off to make myself a bowl of soup now and if I haven’t fallen asleep yet before Jessica get’s back from yoga I might just watch an episode of Game of Thrones with her. She’s never seen them before so I’m re-watching them all with her which is good fun.
Well have a nice evening beautiful souls!
Love Carina xo
