What a beautiful day! Headed out for a short walk, my first since getting the covid, I wanted to see how I felt as it’s nine days since I tested positive but it was good and I feel great. I’ll test tomorrow to see if i’m still positive – fingers crossed!
Well, i’m doing OK, not as bad as I thought I would be, it’s pretty boring to be stuck at home and not be able to go to the Co-op – thankfully Seonaid has very kindly brought us supplies. I’m still a bit bunged up and having pyjama days – i mean, who is going to visit the “plague house” anyway, and i’m not going anywhere. MisterT picked daffs and gorse from the garden and brought inside for me 🙂 Bless him <3
Feeling OK, I definitely haven’t got the covid as bad as MisterT, i’m feeling a bit tired and washed out and still a bit bunged up but nothing too significant. I was being very gentle with myself and sat most of the afternoon and crocheted.
Not feeling too bad, mostly a very annoying bunged up nose which is worse at night. I’m hitting the “garlic/lemon concoction” hard so I expect I stink haha – probably a good job i’m still in the spare room… Photo is my morning drink – overnight I steep an organic green tea bag and an organic Hibiscus tea bag in 500mls of cold water, in the morning I squeeze the juice of an orage and the juice of a lemon into it and add one tablespoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar, I drink this before breakfast and I also take vitamin D3 (in a spray form), I’ve been having this daily since returning home from having my op.
So, there you have it, I joined the covid club, a positive test, I feel a bit rough, not too bad though – everythings a little bit: a little bit of a headache, a little bit of a sore throat, a little bit of a snuffly nose, a little bit tired and achey but otherwise OK.
Not much doing today, Ian still feeling rough, i’m ok so far, a hint of a sore throat but testing negative for covid. I had a trip down to the post office to post a customer order – I wore my mask to go in, just in case… Beautiful late afternoon light…
Ian tells me he had a rough night and doesn’t feel much better. His covid test this morning is positive, hopefully he’ll soon be on the mend… We’ve managed to avoid this for the last three years, thankfully we’ve both had all our vaccines/boosters. I really don’t want this thing though, i’m only just over five weeks post-op and not sure how well my body will be able to fight it off. I think it’s inevitable that i’ll get it though 🙁
Ian has felt dreadful all day, he got up late, was only up for three hours, had lunch and went back to bed all afternoon – most unlike him, I’ve never known him to take to his bed before, he’s never ill, usually has the constitution of an ox. I tested him for covid this evening and it’s still negative. I don’t understand how he can feel so awful and not have it.
Meanwhile i’m still trying to do the best I can to avoid it, juicing fresh veg, taking my supplements and i’ve decamped down to the spare room, though it’s probably too late…
An early birthday present to myself – new swim boots and gloves – I really cannot wait to get back into the water once i’m fit again after my op 🙂
We left the Premier Inn at lunchtime and headed over to Ardeseir where we’d booked an Airbnb apartment looking over the sea. It will be a great place to spend some time here resting and recouperating before making the long journey back home (66 miles driving + 5 hour ferry + 50 miles driving). The apartment is lovely and has everything we will need for the next 10 days.
