Hubs and I have been knocked sideways with a virus, he didn’t go to work on Tuesday last week because he looked like death, went to the doctors on Wednesday and got signed off work for the rest of the week. I went to work on Friday, we had a new starter on Monday and I needed to get his desk ready. As soon as it was done, I went home, crawled into bed and metaphorically died too.
In and out of bed all weekend, went to work to greet new starter on Monday, I dug out his laptop from where I’d hidden it and went back home to bed. Tuesday I managed till 10am, today I’m hoping for the whole day. Fingers crossed.
Neither of us are sleeping well either which doesn’t help, we’ve had two nights back to back where we’re awake in the wee hours. Last night I saw 12:30, 2:30, 3:30, 4:30 – when my alarm went off at 5:30, I was so deep asleep I felt like I’d been yanked out of bed like a back tooth.
On the bright side, I now know that there is a difference between ice dancing and ice skating and got the proper giggles at a god-awful commentator when she noticed that the Russian lady in the ice dancing had her shoulder taped up; “It’s a really strenuous sport with all the lifts they have to do.” I wish I could remember what she said properly, as I was laughing so hard, but alas I don’t have the energy to trawl back through the sh!t-house coverage to find the exact quote. I switched it off in the end the coverage was truly shit-house, if you’re showing a sport that is scored, don’t cut away from the scores to talk about something else!
Mind you, I loved this story about Elizabeth Swaney, competing in the half-pipe for Hungary, bit like how Vinnie Jones was able to played football for Wales. Bill Murray did ask for a normal person to compete in the Olympics so we could compare how good the athletes are, now we’ve got one the outcry is hilarious.
I’ve not been able to track down the BAFTAs ceremony online, I watched a live update and punched the air with joy when Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress. She’s fabulous. Apart from that, I did my usual reading of HE Bates Darling Buds of May series and watched the first episode of the ITV adaptation (remember that?!) with David Jason, Pam Ferris, Philip Franks and Catherine Zeta Jones.
Here’s hoping it shifts soon, I’m running 15km with Kath in a few weeks, I need to be out pounding the tarmac, not nursing a sore throat and sneezing.
