19 December 2014
Well. After a good few months of double shifts & moves from Gems to Rocks, finally finishing 90% of the house we’ve been renovating for nearly 3 years and general life stuff, I can safely confirm that I have well and truly got the lurgy. Bronchitis that just won’t go!
However, I can also confirm that the old wives’ myth re. Vicks VapoRub on the soles of your feet, with a pair of socks, at bed time, does actually stop you from coughing! ‘Tis true!
It’s so close to Christmas day and because of the lurgy, I’m so behind on gift buying and wrapping.
But, I’m also of the mind set that, it will all be fine. No stressing needed.
I’m going to take some time to reflect on 2014, while I’m sleeping off this bug & blowing my nose into what must be the 20th box of tissues and swallowing antibiotics. Nothing like the lurgy to stop you in your tracks and force you to stop.
2014 has been hectic and distant. But, necessary to get the derelict house we bought 3 years ago, *almost* finished.
2015 will be calm, present and full of the right things: family, friends & time to appreciate what we have, and look further forward to 2016 and beyond.
Don’t stress over the next few days. Easier said than done. I know. But those who matter will want your presence more than your presents.
