The Voice

No, not the BBC programme; my voice.

This week I had yet another parents' evening and it was really hard work.  Despite having a bottle of water on my desk and constantly sipping it, I lost my voice a couple of times and by the end of the evening my throat was burning.

The following day my throat was still sore and I had a hundred children to teach.  No chance to rest my voice.

On Friday I was beginning to worry that I'd done something terrible to my voice, which is, after all, my job and my hobby, and something I can't afford to damage.

Then yesterday, in the beautiful sunshine, I took daughter for a walk in Dunham Massey and whilst we were walking my chest tightened up, my throat went dry, I started coughing and then I started sneezing.

Uh oh.

Another bug.

So I went to bed at 6.30pm last night and I'm currently tucked up on the sofa with a blanket and a packet of paracetamol.


There's still two weeks and one more parents' evening to go before the Easter Hols.

Maybe chocolate will help?

Chocolate's bound to help! Hope you make it through.

Definitely chocolate. And a glass of red wine. And no housework for a month!

Oh dear! I hope you recover quickly. Chocolate may help, or try this:

By the way, I took a course of propolis this winter and have not suffered from a single sniffle or cough. I took 20 drops with a bit of honey in the morning and it was pretty yummy too. :)
