Ballymaloe Day 75: A day in the leaba

The last thing you want to happen in cookery school is to be sick on one of the final cooking days…

Over the past few days, I’ve felt another wave of sickness hit me. I don’t know whether it’s something I ate, the cold weather or just a thing that’s going around but anyway, to cut a long story short, I’ve been in bed all day.

I woke up this morning feeling very stuffy and then had a tight stiffness in my upper body, along with a massive headache, so combined I was far from feeling 100%.

Heading back to the house, I pulled on my pyjamas, nabbed a hot drink and water bottle and slept the day away. I didn’t rise until about 5.30 pm.

Since then I’ve been battling with a headache that just won’t shift, but thankfully I’m stocking up on plenty of vitamin see (I love you oranges), and water. Food is much needed…

Fingers crossed that tomorrow will see an energy boost and less of a chill…
