Getting back my breathing

Today Lofthouse's "Fisherman's Friend" are God. (They are one of three different cough drops I've got at my desk and they are making a difference.)

Other meds: Beechams Active (helping with the bad night's sleep) and Erythromycin. I haven't touched the cough syrup yet.

The Erhythromycin is making a positive difference. I am no longer doing nothing but suffering a cold; I am beating it back. I am now at "normal cold, fading" status, instead of "me, fading." I even walked up a flight of stairs on my way into work today. The feeling of pushing my way through clear gelatin as I walk down the street has passed. I am remembering I had bills to pay, a lease to deal with, shows I might want to see. Shows! I might see a show again! I may make plans for the future!

That said, I'm still taking it VERY quietly. The house appears to have fallen down around us in the last week and a half and we have a lot of work to do before Saturday just to catch up.

Ooh, and maybe today I'll have a real cup of tea again. Wouldn't that be a treat?

(PS: World falling apart? Elections gone mad? How about a nice article about spaghetti from the New York Times to cheer you up?)

Fishermen's Friends are great. And open to all sorts of seafaring innuendo.

I now really want bucatini all'amatriciana. You can buy guanciale from here: https://www.nifeislife.com/product_info.php?products_id=757 but I'm going to see if my local Italian place can get it.

Starving!

It's on Caledonian Road, at the Kings Cross end, right opposite the Tesco. Continental Food Store I think it's called.
