Nursing Duties

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?

Oh dear, man flu is a terrible thing.
Hope he feels better soon
