Snapped this morning just after I woke up, from a prone angle, hence the skew-whiffy-ness.

I have such a painful throat, which is extending up into my dreaded left ear which feels full and heavy. Also whenever I've stood up today, or exerted myself at all, I've got that awful head swimmy 'I'm about to pass out' feeling. Not great.

It's blowing a gale now and things have taken a turn for the worse, weatherwise.
