sick of being sick.

oh my gosh, i am so behind on this blog thing. i have excuses though! like i spent a chunk of january trying to finish a zine in time for Weirdo Zine Fest (on 31st january) and i did it! (more about that later) and then after that i was trying to finish a crochet stormtrooper pixel blanket for carl’s birthday, which i also did! go me! and then i’ve been sick all this week. still fucking sick. actually had three proper duvet days on the sofa, would’ve had one on friday too but carl decided to have a day off and there’s not enough space for him + me in duvet mode on the sofa. so i stayed in bed until like 2pm or something. not that it’s really helped, i currently sound like i am drawing my last breath with this coughing fit. well not right now, but when i cough. i do get some respite from nasty coughing fits but it kind of feels like i’m getting worse. i’m at that extra gross lots of flem and snot and dirty coughing. ugh. i’m going to attempt going to the doctors tomorrow after or before work, fingers crossed there’ll be a convenient appointment when i call them at 8am. i dont want to go on my day off cos i have the fear that i’ll go there and they’ll just tell me to take paracetamol and drink hot drinks. and i’d be like GEE I HADN’T ALREADY TRIED THAT WOW I LEFT THE HOUSE FOR THAT STELLAR ADVICE THANKS A LOT D: going outside is extra awful right now. i don’t have high hopes about tomorrow though. it’s like the busiest time of the year cos everyone’s got some variation of a cold. but honestly i’m starting to suspect i have bronchitis or some other form of chest infection and that’s an antibiotics kinda deal, isn’t it? (must not forget to mention i’m allergic to pennicillin…)

yeah i had a big project to do list for when i finished the zine and when i finished the blanket but the whole duvet days thing has kinda put a damper on those. i’ve watched lots of films though! i dont know if i ever mentioned it but i’ve been trying to keep track of all the things i watch / read and here is my list for this year. and last year’s is here. (it’s not entirely 100% accurate though, i didnt always remember to write things down. still don’t but i’m trying to keep notes in my diary. we’ll see how long that lasts..)

i’ll show off my new zine & stuff and the blanket and stuff another time when i feel a bit more human again. carl’s in the kitchen making us meatloaf (recipe) he’s made it before so i know it’s gonna yummy as heck. that’ll be the highlight of my day <3
