Sick Days & Common Ground

I have been off work this week with a yucky cold and a sore throat.  Got onto the antibiotics today (for the sore throat) so should be feeling tippity-top very soon.  However, taking sick days so close to parental leave has given me a lovely insight into those few weeks I'm going to have at home before this new baby arrives.

I have been enjoying sitting on the couch, watching bad daytime TV and knitting.
I'm knitting myself a cardigan - a Common Ground.  It's knitting up really quickly thanks to the 12 ply Bendigo Rustic and I'm looking forward to wearing this little number really soon!

That is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing you wearing it!

I have a cardi I would like to do but know I will not get it done by this winter so it will be a summer project.

Oh, and a little nursing tip some of my Dave senior nurses have passed on to me ...

When you're sick & want to shake it off quickly, overload on vitamin C, quadruple your normal dose, and repeat for 3-4 days :)
