Some time to breathe (raggedly) and a non-OOTD catchup!

Back to a normal(ish) Thursday today.  I made it to Slimming World, even if I was half-dozing through group, and then my Pilates class got cancelled ’cause my instructor is also ill, so I’ve been able to have a nice quiet afternoon – and finally had the chance to read through my entire 120,000-word NaNo novel.  Looking forward to getting stuck into the editing over the next couple of months!

I’ve got a totally quiet weekend coming up, so hopefully I’ll finally have the chance to get over my cold properly.

I did want to get caught up with my OOTDs for the last few days, but honestly, I’ve just been wearing my ’80s jumper collection with jeans and leggings because I feel so rotten and need comforting jumpers on, and have been taking ill-looking selfies that nobody needs to see.  OOTD pictures to return when I start feeling better!

Today’s earworm playlist:

Queen – We Are The Champions
Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill
Ozzy Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne – Changes
Duran Duran – The Chauffeur
Dean Lewis – Be Alright

Gradually getting my admin back on track

Now that I’m no longer at a music festival (now, that was well timed with being so ill!) I am really feeling the effects of the weekend, and am very slow and groggy.  It took me until eleven to crawl out of bed this morning, as I was just feverish and dozing up until that point.  Once I’m up, though, the Lemsip Max Strength really helps, and I was able to get a bit of admin done today.

Tomorrow I might even catch up with my OOTDs.  They’re all a bit sickly-looking though!

Today’s earworm playlist:

Duran Duran – Come Undone
Culture Club – Victims
Ariana Grande – Santa Tell Me
Soft Cell – Say Hello, Wave Goodbye
The Human League – The Things That Dreams Are Made Of

A non-sick day

I’m not feeling too hot at the moment.  The bad cough I had over the weekend has turned into a full-blown cold, and so I feel shaky, drained of energy and generally rubbish.  I’m also ravenously hungry all the time, for some reason, which is not helping me stay on plan SW-wise.

Unfortunately, freelancers don’t get sick days, so I had to work today!  At least I got to do it from the comfort of my own sofa, wearing a giant cosy jumper and putting my feet up, so it’s not all bad.
