It's what I need but it's not happening.
Young Jimi, who is reluctant at the best of times to share his toys or anything belonging to him, with others, has generously shared his rotten cold with me, his Mum and other Nanny. What a parting gift.
I say it's a cold, because I was sneezing and sniffing all through the long day travelling yesterday, but it has become gradually worse. It's more like flu. I absolutely ache all over. There isn't one bit of my body that doesn't hurt...right down to my fingers.
I'm dosing up on all sorts of flu remedies, but I really need sleep more than anything, and I just cannot get comfortable.
The weather is glorious at the moment. It reached 30 degrees today, but being outside makes me feel worse so I have been taking shelter in the bedroom.
Mr A went off to the hotel hamam in Bodrum today, although it seems like a bit of a wasted journey. There are no customers yet, and won't be until the 10th, and even then there will only be a party of school children, hardly customers for Turkish bath. I don't know why they couldn't tell him before he left home instead of insisting he started on 1st May.
He is really not sure this job is going to work out. There seems to be a distinct lack of organisation. However, instead of wasting even more petrol and money, we decided he should stay there, at least for the next few days. He has accommodation and food, and because there is nothing to do, he will use the time to look around the area for more suitable employment. He has already arranged to see another hotel hamam tomorrow morning.
Before I arrived home last night, he had cleaned the house (not to my standards but sufficient enough), and he has stocked me and the dogs up with food. He also collected 4 paraband collars from the vet, as it is now tick weather, so my four kids (as Mr A calls them) are now protected.
I have no need to set foot outside for a while. I can just relax. Now if only I could actually sleep!
