Still coughing myself sick, but ...

I'm trying to soldier on (grin) and not concentrate too much on feeling sorry for myself! I did go back to the doctors today - she thinks my coughing attacks at night are related to the sinusitus which hasn't completely gone away. She gave me a prescription for Prednisone (oh no, I hate that stuff!) to take at night just for a couple of nights, which she feels may stop the irritation etc ... Whether I'll be able to sleep at all taking that stuff I forgot to ask! Maybe if I don't fall asleep I won't be waking up with those coughing fits and that's how it works! Kidding, but ... :)

Anyway, what she said all made perfect sense so the little niggles in the back of my mind have been put to rest again.

So - what else? I've spent the weekend tidying up the house for an impending visit by my Aunt (England) and cousin (Mozambique). They're arriving in Brisbane on Friday and I'm having them for the weekend. I sometimes need something like this to stir me up to clean/tidy the house! Specially when I've been sick for so long ... The last time I saw my cousin Caroline was when Angela and I did a sort of farewell tour of England and Scotland before moving back (me) / emigrating (Angela) to Australia - 1988! 20 years ago this year ... In one way it seems just like yesterday, but in another, another lifetime!!

My yoga practice (and any exercise) fell into a big hole over the past few weeks. I finally did a short yoga practice at lunchtime last Friday, and hope to continue doing that at least 2-3 lunchtimes this week. But I don't think I can go back to a class for another couple of weeks. Apart from the continuing sinus problems (which affect any standing forward bend poses), I normally go on a Saturday. And I can't go for the next couple of Saturdays because of visitors this Saturday, and then the big choir concert the following one.

I'm also thinking of starting back at Curves (gym) after work today - we shall see what I feel like at the end of the day.

Went to have brunch with some friends yesterday, up their almost '4wheel drive car only' track! Luckily they'd had it graded recently and it wasn't too bad. We had a lovely time, sitting and talking on their front deck. They used to have a lot of chooks, ducks and goats, plus a horse. But since they got rid of all that livestock, they seem to have wallabies almost as pets! I saw a couple lying around behind their house ... :)
