I have so nicked this title from my mate. I probably could not have punned that on a good day. With all my neurones firing. And today I confused ‘ordinarily’ with ‘normally’ when talking to the Captain:
How many jars of jam would you get with this recipe, I seem to have more than I expected?
Well, normarily I get about one more jar than you have.
Fortunately, he speaks fluent me, so we were good. It even took a while for me to compute that I had conflated two words.
Today I have been grumpy. And nauseous. And tired. And nauseous. And cold. And did I mention nauseous? I have been tired too. Which is odd because given how much I have slept, I should have been gambolling about like a spring lamb. I slept all night till 7am, then another 2-3 hours this afternoon. And guess what? I am still tired! Where is this buzz I hear the steroids give you? Actually, I do get that. It is not pleasant. More of a jitteriness than energy I have found. I am managing the nausea better. And I think it is improving. Food is essential, little and often. I shall be the size of a barrage balloon by the end of this with all the nibbling. It feels very counterintuitive to eat but it definitely helps. And all things ginger are a must. Ginger beer, ginger nuts, ginger tea, ginger cordial, crystallised ginger, ginger water. If it has ginger in it, then I’ll knock it back.
Today I was hoping to investigate the possibility buying some Sea Bands but forgot at first, then felt too lousy and then was asleep. I should have just asked the Captain. But I forgot to do that too.
