So I have another cold. No really. After spending all of December with a cold, I thought I’d shaken it, but no… I woke up this morning with streaming eyes & nose. Really, life is just so bloody unfair. I’ve been taking my vitamins & everything!

Yesterday was my birthday, so it feels darkly ironic that I apparently picked up some cold germs while I was celebrating. I don’t really appreciate kicking off my 39th year (I turned 38 yesterday) feeling rubbish.

On Saturday I went to York Hall Spa after the gym, with two BGWLC ladies, as a pre-birthday treat. It was fantastic & just what I needed (although maybe I picked up the cold germs there?!) I might start going for a spa afternoon more often, especially given how convenient York Hall is for the gym. I do have a sauna available in my “secondary” gym, but I’m only an off-peak member there so I don’t have as much time in that gym; I’m always rushing back to the office after a lunchtime workout.
