in the doldrums...

I have a cold. Nursing it is a serious business involving lots of hot water with lemon and honey and a lot of reading and DVD watching. I have so far read Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher and Love Letters by Katie Fforde (one needs fluff at such times) and watched, My Sister's Keeper, four episodes of Doctor Who and three of Cranford. Love the BBC! Going to watch more Cranford soon.

Also have had cough lollies, chocolate, juice, a banana, lots of toast. Highly recommend the chocolate if you're feeling poorly! And the complete self-indulgence. The cold seems to affect me less badly if I rest while my body fights it. Though staying in bed or in an armchair for hours does get annoying after a while.

Hope you're all alright!

Feel better soon! Yeah, the honey (and chocolate) helps a lot.

Aww poor Mina. Though I am glad that if you have to be sick, at least you're sick now and not in a month's time - you're getting it out of the way! It would be terrible for you if you were sick in Sydney and couldn't enjoy Harry.

Which Doctor Who episodes did you watch? I do love Ten so very much.

I hope you feel better soon! I have 2 assignments left - I've finished the database and the 12,000 word report I had to write. Now just a 3000 word article and a 1500 word reflection to go. I cannot WAIT until it's November. Seriously. It's the only thing keeping me sane right now.

Hm, let me try to remember Thursday... The Sontaran Solution, The Poison Sky, The Doctor's Daughter and the one with Agatha Christie.

Took some remembering! My head's full of Richard Armitage now from watching half of season three of Robin Hood on Saturday!

Don't let the assessments get you down!

Love,
Mina

Thanks, Dex! Seems like it's finally on the way out now, pest of a thing! I hate colds!

Love,
Mina
