Less guarding

More sleepingToday is a bit over cast and grey, so this is how the guard dogs seem to plan on spending the day.
On Monday, I woke up with the head cold from hell. It was so bad, I didn't go to work until Thursday, in fact Thursday was the first day this week that I got dressed or left the house. I still don't feel exactly wonderful and I have the worst smokers cough, I sound like a 20 a day girl. You know the sort of cough, where you cough and cough and feel like to need to bring up a lung, and even then, after all that coughing, it doesn't help, you still feel like there is 'something' there. I have even left bad enough I have had Benadryl (not a useful link, sorry) That stuff is awful. I remember when I was little, it was kind of a dark red color and really, although it was hardly a nice drink, it really didn't taste that bad, for medicine, now however, it is clear and has a "great berry flavour" (sorry NOT true) it tastes like POISON! It has this awful chemical taste mixed in with the 'berry'. Not being a fan of either chemical taste or berry, you can imagine, I don't really find this stuff a joy to take. Mind you, the first two doses really did seem to be effective. Last nights? Not so much. Why would that happen to you think? Other than to give me the shits of course.......
Anyway, I have one thing on today, so until I have to go to that, I am planing on being very restful, like the dogs (who are now guarding again! (or at least two of them are)).

It takes a lot of pillows to make comfy Scotties. I am always amazed at the lengths Pippi will go to in order to get on top of a pillow.

There is nothing as comforting as a pile of Scotties!

Hope you get better soon!
