The air of January is chilly, the ground is covered in a thin layer of snow, and the health of many is deteriorating fast. I myself have been struck by some kind of bug this past week resulting in a day off from work.

The cold temperatures and bitter weather conditions are a constant battle. Wishing everyone affected a speedy recovery!  Stay safe and warm!


It seems to be that only when I am ill do I appreciate my usual good health. For the past week or so I have had a sore throat coupled with intense coughing, and more recently aches and pains, as well as general cold symptoms.

These symptoms normally come about around the last couple of weeks of my university timetable (November/December). To me they signify stress, a weakening immune system and buckling under university pressures. Hopefully I can recover before doing my exams!
