It would seem that a flu jab doesn’t stop you from getting flu so what’s the point?

It also turns out that I’m Covid Negative so that’s good news but I still have a horrible flu-ey cold so am indulging myself with a day of rest with a Welsh Terrier as a nurse, not a good one admittedly but a nice cuddly one.

Now, let’s get cosy…

My first cold

For the first time in two years, I’m ill. Boo!

All the symptoms, violent sneezing, sore throat, swollen glands, blocked ears, aching face and no sleep. I forgot how miserable having a heavy cold can be.

I think the worst cold I had was in December 2012. I walked into my new job and immediately came down with a filthy London cold which lasted for two weeks. It wasn’t the best start.

Yesterday I soldiered on through a major presentation at the same company surreptitiously blowing my nose when I could before finally logging off at 7pm and collapsing in a pathetic blob.

After a rotten night with no sleep, I’m still feeling dreadful and may even have to take a covid test. After bragging for two years that I haven’t had it, perhaps my day has come!
