Well, someone slept for most of yesterday - and it wasn't Eva!
I feel a lot better today; for one thing my throat no longer hurts and now it merely feels like my ears won't pop, which is a distinct improvement. This morning was a bit groggy from the night-time cold meds so I felt like my head was bobbling around on my shoulders like, well, a bobble head and I'm not sure I was making that much sense before I'd had my second cup of coffee. Fortunately I could limit most of my interactions with people to e-mail and that meant I could hone my words to make sure they made some sense before I hit send.
One very good thing about working part-time is that I don't feel completely exhausted by the end of the day, so when I got home I still had enough energy to play with Eva and read her a story. After that I needed to have a quick nap, but then Madam had a nice splashy bath and she went to bed like a little lamb. I, meanwhile, get to enjoy a glass of wine but I'm sure I'll be in bed well before 10.
