There’s not been much sewing going on lately. I’ve had nursing duties to perform. Soothing a fevered brow, offering encouraging words, and keeping the hot drinks coming. Poor Robin is feeling poorly. With a sore red nose, watery eyes, a raised temperature and a head ache, he seems to have caught a dose of Man Flu from our friend Geoff. Of course, it’s not really flu, as we are vigilant about having our flu jabs every year. Just a nasty cold, which can leave the patient feeling rather grotty, especially with those restless nights and not much sleep. Perhaps I can offer a nice lemon and honey drink? Our baby lemon tree has just produced it’s very first lemon!
My patient does seem a little better today, but the poor dear was really quite miserable over the last couple of days. I hope those germs realise that Man Flu is for men only, and should definitely not be a trans gender disease and jump over to me! Oh well, it must be time to put the kettle on again. Would you like a nice hot drink and a home baked cookie, dear?
