Over the weekend, I discovered a downside of moving to the country… hay fever. Not 10 minutes after we had arrived, my eyes started watering, the back of my throat started itching, and my nose started running. I have always had a little bit of hay fever in the spring, but this was crazy! I took a tablet, but it made absolutely no difference at all.

I didn’t take a photo of my eyes, but if you think red, itchy, and swollen, you will get the general idea. I have been told that there are desensitisation injections you can get, and though I don’t love the idea of injections, I am off to the doctor as soon as possible. Nearly every second person tells me of some alternative medicine cure for it… so I am probably going off to see all them too!
All because of one silly little yellow flower!
