Hmmm. Weird kind of day.
Not weird as in green skies, pink elephants and people wearing watermelons on their feet… but weird. Slightly odd. Missing the mark a tad. That kind of weird.
Woke up this morning (well, not that you could call it waking up, as I don’t think I slept last night. If I did it was for an hour… possibly the hour before I woke up) and I had a slight headache.
I think I’m still coming down with a cold or something. The spots have gone, so that’s good. The stiff neck is still there, and I am REALLY feeling the cold. And it has gone seriously cold this evening. Brrr. I’m feeling it.
Anyway, back to this morning. Woke up with a headache, filled my bath and started to get myself ready for work. Had a strange shimmering white light around my vision just after my bath, which I put down to seeing the reflection of my eco-friendly lightbulb in the bathroom mirror. The light had been diffused (if that’s the correct word to use… I’m cold and my brain isn’t working as well as it usually does…), and the blue colour was very clear at the bottom. The red was also visible at the top, but not as clear. And the white light in the middle was bright. Very bright. Probably my own fault for looking at it – which I didn’t do on purpose the first time I looked.
I managed to do my ironing with one eye, and dressed myself equally well with the same eye. I then went to work, and worked really hard. Me… working really hard. Something is out of sync here. The computer program was meant to be using Friday’s dates, but it was deciding that Thursday’s were better. So it wasn’t working right, and I had to see if I could work out why. I’m not a computer programmer, so I couldn’t. I just had to report that it was using the wrong date. Which it was, so that was a very accurate description, if I say so myself. Not in-depth, but accurate.
Headache lingered all day, over the left eye. The eye with the bright white light in was the right one, and this disappeared after twenty minutes or so this morning. The headache became stronger as I bent down for things, but went away when I stood up again. Apart from that, I felt fine.
For some reason, the girls in the office kept receiving flowers, cards and balloons. They must all have the same birthday is all I can think of (I’m not mentioning the other thing – bah humbug). The girls who didn’t receive any flowers, cards or balloons looked a little put out. And sounded it on the occasions when I heard them making hushed comments to other colleagues. I knew there’d be trouble.
Printer – out of paper. Pen – out of ink. All sorted, and then more work, until home time. The time went by quickly. It’s quite good, this being busy. I may try it again tomorrow.
Luckily, the headache is going now. And so’s the neck ache. And the back ache. Oh, the back ache came on with the cold. Which is why I think I’m coming down with a cold.
I’m off to bed now, with a lovely cold remedy, to sleep. And when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll be fully connected with the real world again. Unless the sky is green, I see pink elephants, and drive to work in my comfortable watermelons. In which case, I will turn back, return home, and go straight back to bed.
