2013 has been a great year in many ways, but I do seem to have had a lot of minor ailments. As someone who hardly ever gets sick except for the occasional cold, I am beginning to feel irritated with myself.
Or I would, if I didn’t feel so unwell. It’s a sore throat, congestion and queasiness today. Nothing a two-hour afternoon nap and a shout at the Hub can’t cure, I’m sure.
Thank you to those of you who have sent jokes in exchange for the hope of a box of Maltesers. There’s still plenty of time to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking for a good ‘un for Joke 1001.
I signed up for another creative writing class which began last night at the local high school. It must be my fourth in as many years. They are a great stimulus to writing, a way to make friends (you can never have enough friends; especially when you have a birthday coming up), and jolly good fun, too.
However, I forgot that we have to do fiction writing and I don’t like fiction writing, except about my life (you didn’t really think the Hub was happily married, did you?). I have to create a character for next week and even I can see he’s cliché-ridden and a bit of jerk (sorry; I was daydreaming about…no, I’m not going there: it’s my birthday next week and I want him to be speaking to me).
In an effort to stave off the worst of this bug and lose weight at the same time, I have overdosed on Vitamin C today (too much Vitamin C acts as a natural laxative, apparently).
I had lemon juice in hot water but it tasted salty. Does anyone know why?
I do hope it’s not that the dishwasher isn’t rinsing properly.
On the other hand, that would explain my general germiness.
