In the end I didn't get very much done at all yesterday. I didn't feel too good when I woke up but thought I'd get through the day okay. However, after a very late breakfast I started to develop a bad headache and was feeling shivery again. I made the really-important-must-be-done-today phone call to confirm the hire of practice rooms for the band for May, something which should have been done ages ago. We can't have our usual rooms for the next two weeks but we will have access to an alternative room which will have to do and is better than having to cancel the sessions.
Once that was done I sort of gave up and went back to bed to try to sleep off what I thought was the onset of a migraine. However, when I woke up later there was no sign of a migraine but every symptom of a rotten cold! I haven't felt this ill with a cold for a long time. I'm fairly sure this was a gift from the children at one of the schools - anyone and everyone seems to have a cold at the moment so I suppose it was inevitable that I'd get one. It won't stop me feeling pathetic and sorry for myself though ... and it's a good excuse to pamper myself ... chocolate is a cure all for colds, isn't it!
