I'm not sure whether it is getting better or not. This morning it is very difficult to swallow drinks or food... trying to eat porridge as I won't get through a morning of french horn teaching if my tummy is rumbling!
I was ill before Christmas - think it was a chest infection as I had a horrible cough that lasted... well is still not quite away. As I was home over New Year Mum and Dad came up with a herbal cold-blasting remedy and sent me back to Glasgow with 'Echinaboost' which are echinacea in tablets you chew that taste great - sort of licorice and fennel flavour which is a bit like a weak Fisherman's Friend and Vitamin C & Zinc tablets.
Needless to say when I got back to Glasgow, to work and tax returns, I stopped taking any of these..... Next thing I know my cough is worse and it's topped with a sore throat.
So I'm going back to the herbs & I'll see if they help more this time!
It's nearly 8am now so I should really get ready for work. I like that for the Saturday morning school I'm allowed to wear jeans as it makes this process loads easier. I have to remember not just to pick up last night's clothes though as I spilt my first pint of lager down my front in a grand show of grace and poise.
