Sick As A Mik

I was looking forward to this weekend.
I had spent most of last week being a designated driver and running people around. I covered hundreds of miles and on Friday night I had a bottle of wine with my name on.
On Friday morning I got into my truck as usual but the recently installed air freshener was overpowering and by lunchtime I had a bit of a sore throat. When I got back to base I threw the offending article away. My sore throat didn't disappear as quickly but I thought it wouldn't last. I went home and enjoyed my wine and after having something to eat I went to bed.
By 5am Saturday morning I was sweating and coughing and generally feeling pretty awful, luckily I managed to get back to sleep. As it happened I spent the whole of Saturday in bed feeling like someone had given me a good kicking in the kidneys.
I finally got out of bed at midday today still feeling battered. Although I don't feel as bad as yesterday I'm still not 100%.
I'm hoping this little bout of sickness is at most a 48hr stint. More than that I'm hoping that my kidneys recover some time soon. They've been working overtime.
