Achoo, Achoo!

Please Mother Nature, give a girl a break here! It's cold, the fire is blazing & according to the calendar it's still officially Winter until tomorrow. So what's the deal with these miserable hay fever symptoms I'm experiencing. The sneezing, watery eyes & a pounding sinus headache - this is way too early in the season for this to be happening. If this a sign of what's in store for me this Spring then I'm out of here & taking that Territory Manager's position I saw advertised for Antartica!

  1. Millie I hear you loud & clear. We all suffer from allergies & it does not seem to matter what time of year it is. Hopefully this is not a sign of the Spring to come for you.

    Be well my dear xx

  2. I know what you mean ... I have chronic sinusitis and in Spring it's just AWFUL for me in DC.
    Hopefully, It won't be that bad for you in Spring.


  3. Hi Millie,

    Sorry to hear that you are suffering from allergies.
    Yes, Spring tomorrow and hopefully you will feel better.

    Hope that you are having a lovely week

  4. Awwww...sorry to hear you are battling all of those yuckies! Here's to them scooting out of the way for you really soon! :)

    Hey...btw, I added you as one of my inspiring peeps on my side bar pages. You really are inspiring. Hugs!

  5. Wow, when I first read that tomorrow was the last official day of Winter I did a double take! I forgot for a moment that you are in Australia! I am in the US, we are just winding down our summer, though after today I wonder if it is winding down. It was nearly 100 here, with 98% humidity, yuck! I am sorry you're not feeling well, I understand completely how you feel. I have allergy issues in the spring and fall. No fun at all! Hang in there!

  6. I hope you are feeling better, really really soon.

  7. Hope you feel better soon Millie. I completely empathise with you though as I believe I live in the allergy/asthma capital of Australia. Hope you are dosing up on the antihistamines, pain killers and nasal spray!

    Even though I too suffer, I HATE the cold so yay for Spring! I can't wait.

  8. I hope it warms up for when I get home in a few weeks time. I am trying to plan it so I leave Sweden as it gets cold and arrive in The Adeladie Hills as it is warming up. I think it should work. At least Stirling is a beautiful place to enjoy the winter and cosy up in the mist.

  9. Hi Mille,

    Yeah! You won my giveaway! Drop me an email with your shipping information and I will send it out to you shortly!

    Congratulations! I am so glad you won!


  10. Winter lurgs finally caught up with me big time! Hope you dont get the Antarctic Post, it would play havoc with your fine complextion. They can send me instead - I'm half dead already!

  11. Did you say, young gorgeous and fun??? too bad I'm married!

    Ok DC restaurants.
    Kafe Leopold is a must in Georgetown. Very charming, Austrian food.
    Cafe Milano in georgetown ... Hip place, Italian food
    There is a great Belgium restaurant called "Et Voila" in Palisades neighborhood, reservation recommended, since it's a small place.
    Bourbon steak at the Four seasons hotel is great in Georgetown, has a fantastic bar.

    Hope I was helpful. Let me know if you need any other info.

  13. Hi Mill's,
    Perhaps you are getting it all over now and have desensitized yourself and the summer will be a breeze !! .....OR....perhaps not.
    Hoping this comment finds you feeling better.I'm sure that MOTH is bringing you antihistamines and boxes of man sized tissues !!!! At least you have Spring and Summer on the way. I can feel Autumn in the air. XXXX

Without a quickening of the heart.
