I worked from home today because I have a touch of a head cold. This was excellent timing because for some reason our heat did not work all day. I had to call the maintenance people and have someone come repair it (which they eventually did). But most of the day was spent shivering under blankets with Neil and trying to copyedit with frozen fingers. Perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it is my belief that there is nothing worse than being ill and cold. One just aggravates the other.
To reward myself, I ate a single Jaffa cake (Neil was kind enough to get me box for Christmas). It was heavenly. I don’t know why I didn’t stuff my face with them when I was abroad. I could have, but I didn’t. I believe that all European candy (and specifically English candy) is superior to what we have in the U.S. My favorites include the aforementioned, Mars bars, Kinder, and Jammy Dodgers. Seriously. I love Jammy Dodgers.
In this time, where I cannot breathe out of my nose, nor really taste things as they should be, I like to pause and think of these foods and think on the future when I will be able to process oxygen normally again. Additionally, I will consume massive amounts of tea. Cheers!
Until next time. xx
