Awake with a coffee after a pretty rough night.

Lots of coughing and sneezing. My heat feels like it’s throbbing and twice its usual size. And yet… I still feel much better than the last (and first) time I had Covid. So I’m grateful for that.

Obviously, I’m going to stay indoors again today and rest. No need to leave the apartment tomorrow either - though I wish I could go to my Japanese class. More importantly, I need to be able to fly to Dublin on Wednesday night for work, so my main focus is on getting better by then.

In more positive news, my partner returned from dinner at a friend’s last night with a care package for me. Tupperware full of turkey, mashed potato and other treats. And as Covid hasn’t put a dent in my appetite this time, I’ll be tucking into that later today.
