alternative title.....Spring is lovely, but she's a bi*** to live with.
It's hayfever season.
Trees are covered in blossom, the Jasmine buds are richly pink and getting fat.
Any day now, the Jasmine will bloom and my sinuses will be in trouble.
I've stocked up on antihistamines. Lots and lots of antihistamines.
I fear I won't have enough, since this hayfever season is predicted to be the worst we've had for quite some time.
Tuesday's strong winds kicked off my sniffles by blowing pollens in all directions. I woke up that morning with stuffy sinuses and have spent the entire days since then sniffling, blowing, sneezing. My nose is raw and my whole face aches from the pressure.
I've been taking double doses of antihistamine and I'm close to being a zombie.
This will pass.
Anyway, back to my original story.
I've decided it's time to update my i-pod playlist.
I'd deleted many of my favourite songs, since I only had the small 512MB shuffle, which didn't hold a lot of songs, then the old computer got retired and I didn't get around to loading many new songs into the new one.
Even though I've had it now for over two years.
Along with a third-hand 30GB i-pod.
I'm such a lazy-bones.......
I have an in between size i-pod, but it only works through windows media player. And it won't hold all my songs.
This week, I decided the time had come.
I climbed onto the small step-ladder and reached into my top-of-wardrobe section for my stored cds.
When I thought I had a good grip on the last handful, I sneezed. Suddenly and unexpectedly.
They're all stacked on the bookshelf behind me now and on the weekend the fun part begins.
Checking them off against the songs I already have in the i-tunes, so that I don't double up, then loading up the rest, and transferring them all to the i-pod.
Should keep me busy for the entire weekend, maybe longer.
