Thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday. They cheered me up no end. It's amazing how a bit of kindly sympathy helps, isn't it? I think (I hope) I have responded to them all but not necessarily individually.
As the day progressed, the aches diminished, I kept dropping off to sleep and I feel much better now with just an aching arm. I had a great sleep overnight too, finally waking properly just before seven. Incredibly late for me but I must have needed it. I'm reckoning it was the pneumococcal innoculation that caused the reaction because the flu jab has never been any bother before.
In fact, I feel so fine, I want to pop out for a swim, something I haven't done for a couple of months and intend to remedy! Don't worry, I won't overdo it, but I need to get out and move a bit!
Because I haven't been swimming for a while, I needed to go through both my swimming bag and my costume basket and thank goodness I bought a couple of cossies in a sale three months ago a size down because I couldn't wear the ones I used to wear now! The one I wore most is only fit for chucking but the other two are in good condition and I think I know who might be able to use them!
I didn't do much yesterday apart from knit, sleep and watch telly. I'm still catching up on Christmas recordings. Once I get back from my swim, today should be much the same but without the aches. What a lazy so and so I am being this weekend with another week before the busier life starts again.
I'll stop now and get the other blog written up and posted too. Have a great day everyone,
Later edit: Well, I went to the gym only to discover that they're had heating problems and the pool is five or six degrees below what it should be. Er - no, I don't think so. So I'm home and will try again tomorrow when they hope it will be back up to temperature, fingers crossed. :-)
Glad you're feeling better, Joy - a restful day and lie in was clearly just what you needed. So enjoy a restful day today too! I'm not planning on doing much either.ReplyDelete
So glad you are feeling better antibody building really makes you feel awful. Be lazy it is allowed.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to read you're feeling much better today, Joy. I'm currently aching all over, as having been very lazy this last week, I thought it a good idea to try going for a run yesterday. I'm paying for it now. Enjoy your restful day. XReplyDelete
Great to read you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
Have a good day! xx
Sooze, you have a lovely restful day too. You deserve it.ReplyDelete
It wasn't nice, Diane, but I think it was important to have the innoculation so you just have to go with the flow, don't you?
I hope the aches go away quickly. Jules. It's just too easy to let things slip a bit, isn't it?
Thanks, Annabeth. It's fine today, just an achy upper arm which is fine.ReplyDelete
I’m waking up in the night due to being too warm, but know that colder weather is coming so don’t want to change the duvet to the lighter one. Shame about your swim-I’d have been into the cooler water as I sometimes find pools too warm. My jigsaw is abot half done now but I am finishing it before I start anything else!!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that you have been poorly, Joy. My aunt had a really bad reaction to her flu jab even though the doctors told her that it was unlikely to have been the cause. She is adamant that it was.ReplyDelete
3lbs is not so bad. I do the weighing at my group and I know that there will be some massively bigger gains than that!
I'm joining you in the 'back-to-normal-eating' club! X
SInce losing weight, I feel the cold a lot more now and appreciate the one hour setting on the electric blanket very much indeed.ReplyDelete
The jigsaw is going well, isn't it. They can be extremely challenging!
I do hope you're now well and truly on the mend, Joy. Just a thought, but might you have picked up an infection from the pool? When I used to go to our local pool, donkey's years ago, with husband and sons, I invariably ended up with some kind of infection - well, it's just a thought.ReplyDelete
Well, I didn't get into the pool so no danger there. No, it was just a reaction to the jab. I'm fine now, thank you very much for asking.ReplyDelete
Glad you're feeling a bit better. Sorry you didn't have your swim. I don't blame you - I wouldn't have got in either! Hopefully they'll have it fixed soonReplyDelete
