Not covid

 When I got up yesterday morning, it was still stiflingly hot indoors, especially upstairs.  However, when we went shopping around 9 am, it was noticeably cooler outside, certainly much cooler than inside the house.  Having most of the windows open all day and a strong breeze blowing did cool the house down a lot by the afternoon.  We had a few very brief showers during the day, but not enough to perk the garden up.

Both the top up shopping and the fuel husband put in the car have gone up again.  It's getting totally ridiculous, as well as concerning - when is it ever going to stop?  I dread to think how much our energy bill and heating oil are going to cost during the coming winter.  Fortunately, we're able to cope alright currently, I don't know how long that will last if prices keep going up the way they are though.

By late afternoon I felt decidedly unwell - in fact I have done for 2 or 3 days.  Covid levels are rising again, apparently, so I did a test - negative thankfully.  I suppose it could just be the heat of the past few days - I don't cope well with heat, and especially humidity, at all.  Or maybe a virus, I don't know.  I went to bed early anyway.  Not feeling much better this morning.

I'd made a meatloaf yesterday, to have with salad and home grown new potatoes for dinner.  I only had a small portion as I didn't feel hungry at all.  Husband pronounced the meatloaf "very nice, very beefy".  It was lamb, mint and apricot actually.....😒


  1. Hopefully you are feeling better today Sooze and it isn't the dreaded virus.

  2. At least it isn't Covid. Small mercy I know. I hope you begin to feel better soon. Sending healing vibes your way. xx

  3. lol give him the benefit of the doubt Sooze…he might have meant to say ‘very meaty’ and it came out as ‘very beefy’ 😊
    You’ve probably got loads to do but rest up as much as you can… many people are feeling crook - test negative- then a couple of days later, bam it’s positive and ‘death’s door time’ (not literally but really really sick)

  4. I'm still giggling at the 'very beefy' comment - men, you've gotta love 'em, haven't you? He enjoyed it anyway. As for you - ease off all the jobs while you recover from whatever ails you. I do wonder if many people have had some sort of Covid-like virus without knowing exactly what it was. Rest, drink plenty of liquids and give yourself the chance to recover.

  5. Beefy sounds more robust than lamby, lol. I hope you feel better soon.

  6. Thinking of you and hoping you feel loads better very quickly. xx

  7. I had to laugh at the 'very beefy' remark, typical man eh!! I hope you soon feel better and that it was just the heat and not the dreaded Covid.

    Alan has had to fill and then top up his fuel tank this week due to working away and visiting family in Scotland and it cost him over £150 ... bloody hell, it's ridiculous and his car is super economical on fuel.

  8. Giggled at the "very beefy". As others have said take it easy and perhaps test again in a couple of days. My friend tested negative after her hubby tested positive, but tested positive 2 days later. Hope it isn't what happens in your case though.

    God bless.
