“October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds among the staff and students. Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and Hagrid’s pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds.”—J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (via alvprinsessa)
I’ve had laryngitis and a very sore chest infection for over a week now and I still feel so unwell and tired. Luckily I’m not in uni until 3 today but I’m falling behind on uni work and I have basically no money until November. Trying very hard not to get the blues! I need some fresh air and a massive thermos flask of coffee.
