As problems go, it's not the end of the world. Just a mild annoyance that sometimes you don't want.

Weights and Colds

Not long after returning to London post Christmas, Catherine got a stinking cold. On Monday, I ended up with it. Doesn't seem as bad as hers - I haven't been bad enough to take time off work - but it seems to help if I don't think too much, and I don't exactly have a lot of energy which makes burning off the quite frankly ridiculous half a stone of weight that I put on at Christmas, a little hard.

Festive Tooth

When you have a temporary filling, it's a good to avoid eating anything from a box of Thorntons scrummy Original Toffee. It's an even better idea to not forget that you can't chew on said toffee, on the right side of your mouth.

I've had a bit of a sore arm all day thanks to the annual flu jab, which I got from the doctors last night. I say annual - in reality it's the first one I've had in about four years as I keep forgetting, which usually results in being told off by my doctor. As I'm asthmatic, they seem to think these things are vaguely important.

Alas Poor Toric, I Knew Him Well

Sorry, you can blame Kirk for that title, but today the torric contact lens went back. Well actually not the original - I gave up on that pretty quickly - but a second type of torric contact lens.

Oh To See! To See!

Bar a brief dalliance with them on Saturday when I had a trip to the opticians, I've not worn my contact lenses for almost a week, whilst I wait for another type of lens to appear, for me to try.

To Toric or Not To Toric

After visiting the opticians the other day, I was given a new toric lens to try and counter the affects of a minor astigmatism in my eye. Or that's the theory. In practise, it seems to have made the problems I've been having with eye strain recently have just got ten times worse.

Can you just say that again?

One of the comments I've heard a lot of the last few days is "you sound terrible. Go home and put your feet up". Which is ironic given that overall, I'm feeling fine - it's just that I've completely lost my voice!

Note to self…

Always remember that trying to contact verbally with someone on the phone is pretty fuitile when you have lost your voice and can't particularly make yourself be understood very well even when someone is stood right in front of you, yet alone at the other end of a crackily phone line.
