It’s only Wednesday and I am completely shattered!
I told myself the fatigue was probably because I’ve allowed myself to go full throttle this week on the work front. I have been taking it slightly easier than usual at work because I’ve been recovering from a nasty throat infection (which I ignored at first because I thought it was hayfever!). Monday morning was my last dose of antibiotic and the prescription meds seem to have worked. My tonsils don’t look so huge now (I did say at one point that my tonsils were so big they needed their own post code!) but every now and then I still feel a twinge of pain and I must admit, I am worried that I haven’t quite kicked the infection yet. I must remember to book an appointment to see the doctor again, to just check.
I got home slightly late today because a teenager stupidly drove his motorbike through the railway. Just as the train was passing through. He wasn’t hurt but was obviously shaken. I think he was thrown from his bike. Because when I looked out the train window, his bike was lying VERY near the tracks and he was about 3 feet away from said motorbike. He also looked very afraid. Afraid enough to yell at the driver, in a very worried voice, “I’m sorry!” Even through the closed windows and doors of the train, you could hear the tremor of fear in his voice. He suddenly looked very young, ringing his hands and his face flushed bright red. The poor thing. It makes you shake your head really. Why do kids do stupid things like run a motorbike through a railway track?
In other news, I have broken the unofficial baking embargo by baking tonight. It will be coconut and jam slices. I am excited! I am baking again!
