Having fought off a cold since the beginning of December with extra vitamins, hand sanitizer and a refusal to be ill, Christmas Day was unfortunately accompanied with a very heavy head cold. It had won after all.
I soldiered on through the day with breakfast, presents, walking the dog and a delicious lunch and then it was game over as I sneezed and sneezed and sneezed and everything seemed to ache.
It’s fair to say I wasn’t the most fun and with nothing in the house except for a few soluble aspirin which barely touched the swollen glands, it was all a bit of challenge.
It was an early night with no sleep due to a temperature and an aching head and with Boxing Day rain, a day on the sofa.
I was not much fun!
