I’ve been fighting a bug for the last couple of days, feeling hot and cold by turns, shivery, achey and crap.
(As I wrote the above sentence, I suddenly got a vision of me standing up to a giant cockroach, poking it with an umbrella and forcing it back down into the sewer where it came from. Maybe I’m more ill than I think).
So my body isn’t behaving as it should. When you feel like this, though, it’s amazing how small things can make all the difference to your state of mind. At the moment I am cheered by the fact that I am:
1. Eating a Fry’s peppermint cream, one of my all time favourite chocolate bars.
2. Drinking a cup of coffee.
3. Looking forward to the weekend when we’re visiting our friend – who lives on a farm, complete with alpacas!
If chocolate, caffeine and a furry South American ungulate can’t cheer you up, nothing will.
