Prepare for a grumpy post...


Yes- I have a horrible head cold.The sneezing, wheezing, hacking and snorting type. And worst of all- I have lost my voice.
Those of you who know me ( expat mum- watch it- I know where you live) will appreciate how awful this is for me. I can't communicate. I feel miserable: hot, sore dripping nose, tickly throat...
This has gone on since Tuesday night- and I am thoroughly bored with it. I have had two horrible broken nights sleep in a mediocre noisey hotel, and have worked through an industrial quantity of tissues.

Tonight I am going to be in my own bed,and at least I will have peace and quiet. All I can say is bah humbug.
I remember seeing adverts when I was a student where you were paid to be exposed to the common cold virus so that trials for cures could be done. Clearly the scientists didn't make much progress, and I cannot think of anything worse. Imagine volunteering to get a cold. No way!

awww soo sorry to hear this. being in your own bed has to help some though. how about a hot bath? A hot toddy? anything?
Hope you get better soon...no time to be sick.

Poor Jo,

Sounds like the bug I have. Yes, still have it but it has improved a bit. But my doc called it a sinus infection and has me on antibiotics. Hope you feel better soon!

Take good care!

LOL
hope you feel much better very soon.
cold's are awful.
:-((
my word verification is 'zerantem' which sounds very much like a cold/flu medication. take two tsps and call me in the morning. ;-)
