D & Alien

As you’ll know if you’ve read any of my blogs these last few weeks, you’ll know I’m taking various multivitamins in the hope that a healthy body will help lead me to a healthy mind.

On of the things that I’m taking is Vitamin D, this is something that the body will normally produce from skin exposure to the sun.  However, my shins are still smarting from the burning a few days ago, well itching, am expected peeling to start any day now.  And I’m not a great sun lover anyway, so taking Vitamin D supplements makes sense. Remember that vitamin absorption works best in combination – e.g. calcium is absorbed better in the presence of Vitamin D.

Today I came across this article from Vitamin D advice for everyone: coronavirus. It’s well worth a read (and not too long).

Remember there is not evidence that this will reduce the risk of coronavirus, but it will assist with general immunity and well being.

For me, this is just a reinforcement that taking supplements is the right thing to do.  I don’t think it make my immune system superhuman, I’m as vulnerable as anyone to coronavirus, but it can’t hurt to have the healthiest immune system I can.

Note: this is not medical advice, just what I’m doing.

As for today.  Is going okay.  Watched “Aliens” with hubby and daughter last night – on Alien Day.  Who knew that was even a thing?  Well apparently a lot of people are aren’t me. Turns out that they take it from the planet LV-426 so the day is April 26th.  Odd coincidence there.

Right now I have to go, I’m trying to concentrate on writing my 5th steampunk novel and concentration is not proving easy today.

Today I have been mostly finishing stuff.

I finished the washing, and got it out on the line, were if mostly dried.  There were a few bits that needed 20 mins in the tumble drying, but air drying is my preference where possible.  Of course, now I have a pile of ironing that I haven’t even started. I finished typing up my notes for book 5.  I finished the edits on one of my Locked Books from the proof-reader.  All I have to do now is make it available – one of the more useful things about self publishing, it’s easy to change the text if necessary.

It was such a nice day that I got to spend a fair amount of time sitting in the garden. Which was really pleasant, except that the neighbours had their radio on too loud and their choice of radio station is certainly not mine. It annoyed me so much that I ended up coming in just to be aware from it.  Though in all honesty it was also starting to turn cold, so I wouldn’t have lingered much longer anyway.

In a complete change of direction, jeans are a difficult thing to find with a decent fit, but yesterday I took a chance on buying a new pair from Tesco.  Today I’ve worn them all day, and they are so comfortable.  It’s lovely to find a pair of jeans that fit properly and comfortably.  The fact that they didn’t cost a fortune is also a good thing.

Right well, up for a movie night now. Aliens.  Got my pop. Got my popcorn.  Got my feet up.  That’s all now.
