On Saturday afternoon, I suddenly started feeling cold and shivery. I mean really shivering. Now, it had been a little cooler than of late, but it certainly wasn’t that cold. I then started to ache all over and feel totally worn out. Didn’t feel like eating much, and couldn’t even contemplate opening a bottle of wine (which I normally do on a Saturday evening). Watched TV till about 10:30, then went to bed.
Woke up this morning still feeling rough as the proverbial badger’s bottom. Had a cup of tea rather than the usual mega-espresso, and had to force myself to get out to the laundrette to pick up my washing. Got home, feeling even rougher and achier.
Sat around, read the paper, phoned my brother. All while feeling ewwwww.
Then I decided to get back to fixing the layout of this here weblog. Did that, and now I actually feel a lot better. Not 100%, but much better
I’ve had this kind of thing before. Some weird virus thingy, I guess…..
 I can’t say I’ve ever got close enough to a badger to confirm how rough its bottom actually is, but I’ll continue to use the phrase anyway
