  • I still have a cough.  I've progressed to the point where I am no longer stupid ill with it, I just ... cough a lot.  I'm not getting enough sleep as a result, but I'm definitely getting better.  Just slowly.
  • I went for my quarterly bone marrow sample on Wednesday; it was probably the least-unpleasant experience yet.  I got the doctor who is particularly skilled at taking them.  I'm pretty certain if there was anything to worry about I'd have had a phone call by now, so I am not worrying.
  • The children had half-term off school, and we sent them to holiday club for 3 days and took 2 days as family holiday to Sheffield where the newest and tiniest cousin is.  As usual, the highlights of Sheffield for the children were, in order: a) trams b) Ponds Forge swimming pool c) their family (especially tiny cousins).
  • I took the children swimming twice in Sheffield.  Charles's birthday party earlier in the month was the first time I've been swimming since getting ill, and I had almost forgotten how much I like it.  Taking them to Ponds Forge is more walking-around-in-water than swimming, especially as I was solely responsible for non-swimmer Nico, but it was fun anyway. 
  • Between cough and holiday and sleep deprivation I am behind on everything and have an assignment deadline on Thursday.  Essay crisis ahoy!

Sympathy. I seem to have finally kicked my chest bug, only to promptly come down with a sinus bug. I am not amused! (Though it could be far worse, I'm just a little headachey)

I hope the cough goes away soon.

Persistent cough, following all and any minor colds...

It's a known symptom of mild asthma, and mine cleared up completely when I got a salbutamol inhaler.

This may or may not be true for you, but it's so common that you really do need to raise it with your GP.

I must catch a time in Ponds Forge when the fun bit is open but not so heavily populated with little children. I have been in the Olympic sized pool which is astonishingly clean compared to the other Sheffield pools I've been in, but it was 9pm and the rest was shut. Also I want to go and do some of the strength & conditioning classes they do there.

Trams never, ever get old. When my 35-ish year old friends come, they still want to go on the trams.
