I woke up the other day in a bit of a daze. I’d loaded up on cold and flu tablets and a healthy measure of cough syrup but had still spent the night coughing and spluttering myself out of sleep. I am not the best patient and will do anything to get over being unwell as quickly as possible, hence being full of medication, vitamins and garlic pills that probably do nothing at all.
When I did wake properly, I lay in my bed gazing at the wall. The shadows from the curtains looked funny. The large metal eyelets cast shadows that looked just like the tyres on two upside down cars that seemed to be parked on my wall.
