Healing Sleep!!!

Well they do say that sleep heals and boy did I do some sleeping yesterday.
I fell asleep after lunch and Andy had to wake me for my tea which I managed to eat.
I fell asleep again after tea and woke up at 9:30pm, had another shower and watched a couple of things on You Tube.
Went to sleep again at 1am after reading for a while and woke at 7am for a cup of tea and then back to sleep and woke at 10:15am.
I really do feel better for it.....not quite ready for chucking myself about doing big jobs or anything but certainly a lot brighter so hopefully I have slept the bugs away and I am getting over it.

I did warn DDIL that I was germy but Ruby insists that she still wants to come today after school and I will be really glad to see her. 
She and Marlowe already have colds and seem to have had them all winter.

Andy has been a total star....seeing to meals and keeping me supplied with drinks and hot water bottles all day long.
I think it has shocked him just how poorly I have been as I have never taken to the sofa for so long before.

My reading session last night saw me finish my annual reading of Rosamunde Pilchers' Winter Solstice and I quite fancy carrying on in that gentle vein so today I will start on The Shell Seekers which I haven't read for a long time.
There is nothing new on my shelf at the moment so I don't mind going back to an old favourite.

Andy has just got back from town and is offering coffee so I think that and a look at the papers will do me for now.

Hope you all have a lovely day.

  4. I hope the sleep does the trick. Sometimes you need to hibernate through a cold. I also think a hot water bottle can do wonders. Also alcohol. The great debate in this house is whether it is whisky and hot lemonade or rum and hot blackcurrant that works the magic. Hope you feel better soon x

    1. The sleep has certainly made me feel better. Unfortunately I have to pass on the alcohol as I don't drink but the rum and blackcurrant sounds like it would be very good-x-

  5. I also read Winter Solstice each year starting around the first of December. This is the only book I purchased the first day it was available in 2000. I also love to read all four of her novels in order...Shell Seekers, September, Coming Home and Winter Solstice. I do this every few years. My favorite author! Nancy

  7. Hello Sheila, just catching up with your news over the past few days. Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. Touch wood I rarely get a cold but when I do, oh boy! I definitely believe sleep is nature's way of healing so it's good you've been able to rest when you've needed to. You've had a lot to cope with the past few months as well so your body is probably ready for a re-charge.

    It sounds as though Andy is looking after you well. Enjoy your time with Ruby. I bet you'll feel tons better for seeing her :) xx
