Morning comes around again!

I woke up several times in the night with a throat feeling as if it was full of razor blades, but this morning it does feel a little better but still sore.....a morning at gym will be a challenge - perhaps I shall develop my own sign language for forward rolls, cartwheels and handstands!  I have broken out a jar of special Jarra honey from Australia that a friend gave me the last time I had a cold, and it tastes like treacle, certainly very soothing for the throat.

The EFG sent me a very special parcel yesterday for my birthday tomorrow.  She asked the YFG to video me opening it, which we did when the YFG came home from school yesterday - but now the file is too big to email to her - whoops!  The gift is a Moonpig mug, and she has decorated it with pictures of all the family, including one of her with the FH when she was a baby!  I shall treasure it, but I SHALL use it - it won't just be put on a shelf and admired.

Tomorrow afternoon the Lincolnshire relatives are descending, and bringing food for a birthday tea, so I shall be spoiled!

Off to gym this morning - hope you all have a good day.  I am just about to hang out the first load of washing, as apparently it will stay dry today, fingers crossed!

What a lovely present, definitely one to be used and treasured, not just sat on a shelf. Can you try cloud storage to get the file to EFG? Hope the sore throat fades away, I gargle with 1 drop of tea tree essential oil mixed in a small amount of warm water, it's an acquired taste, but very effective. Tea tree used to be called a medicine chest in a bottle as it is anti viral, antibacterial & antifungal. Might help! Enjoy your birthday, Vee x

Hope you are spoilt and that the honey does the trick. What a great gift the mug sounds.
You've got some stamina even leaving the house with that bad a sore throat, I would hibernate until it had gone! Keep warm and well x
