Winter bugs, go away!

And also can the rain go away too please.

Although luckily we are not flooded here- I hope everyone else in the UK is doing OK at the moment.

Anyway, I just have not been back to my normal self- after the week of feeling dizzy (well nearly), then getting a cold (which was fine, just annoying) this wee I managed to have a little stomach bug too. I was OK Monday, but went to see a friend after work so didn’t have a run (plus I did the 8.3 miles on Sunday so I wanted a little rest)- but then feeling poorly meant I missed aerobics and Sweatshop ( yet again). I am going to forget all the routes we run!

I have been having tea (as usual ) to stay warm- I was sent this Twinings stuff, which smells lovely, but does not quite taste as nice as it smells- it tastes quite watery. I think I might try it in porridge or something like that. Or maybe in a spiced tea bread?

Anyway, I have been managing to get into the Christmas spirit a bit. I have iced the Christmas cakes now too, and I am starting to think of how to decorate them. I am looking to do a robin on my parents one- something like this one perhaps? Cute!

Talking of Christmas, Ffion has a super Hotel Chocolat giveaway at the moment- check it out πŸ™‚

Β Feeling Christmassy yet? Only about a month to go πŸ™‚

  1. Hope you feel much better now. Must say I am feeling Christmassy as well, rather early for me, usually I’m a right bar-humbug until the last minute πŸ˜‰

    1. Well thanks for hosting it!
      I think Andy might actually leave me if I buy more tea at the moment! But I might look out for it later on πŸ™‚

  2. That’s horrible, have you been to the doctor? Hope you feel better soon x
    I’m not at all in the Christmas spirit yet, need to get on it! I would be if I’d been icing Christmas cakes though, especially with that gorgeous robin πŸ™‚

    1. No, not the doctor, but they are all just little bugs- so many going around at school at the moment so no surprise I picked some up. Feeling better now though!
      I know the robin is so cute- I think I am going to attempt it.

  3. I still don’t feel too Christmassy but I am finding all the decorations/songs a bit more acceptable now that it’s nearly december ha! I did buy some mince pie filling this week to make mince pie oats, so I guess that was festive πŸ˜› Hope you feel fully better soon πŸ™‚

  4. The weather has been seo crazy this year. I though maybe we were going to get some down time with it but, no, more ridiculous rainfall arrives! It seems so ludicruous now that we were ever in ‘drought’!

    Hope you feel better. There’s definitely some nasty stuff going rounf this season, I wonder whether the relatively mild temperatures have let things fester more than usual? I think a wee cold snap is in order to kill everything off!

    Totally feeling Christmassy now! I walked past the Natural History Museum this morning and they have assembled their outdoor ice-rink and it was so pretty with Christmas trees and little penguins…I’m excited for December!

    I must be so cute in school towards Christmas., although a little bit tiring with all the over-exicitment!?

    1. Penguins! Fun!
      Yes it can get tiring- not too bad right now but nearer the time the kids get very hyper indeed!
      I think you are right about the temperature- they do need a cold snap to kill them (the bugs).

  5. Feel better soon!
    I love Twinings green and black teas, but I find a lot of their fruity ones quite watery – it should be good as an infusion for cooking though!
