I have been avoiding a potential visitor for some time now. I hear a sniffle, a cough, the look of someone who isn't at their best and think 'Let's avoid them like the plague!'. It worked so well but then at the weekend that all too familiar nose tingle began. The right nostril... no, I won't let this happen - followed by the left nostril... go away! Then a BANG on the door... the throat hurts, the fuzziness of a cotton wool head, the ears start to ache and the face feels like it's three times the size. Yes, the common cold has decided to visit me once again! My mood is as blue as this gorgeous grape hyacinth!
As you can probably tell from my posts, I am not a stay at home person. I am not a person who likes to sit down for too long, and if I do my mind has to be working. But, bleugh, I feel rubbish! Wearing PJ's and slippers out of necessity for some comfort.
The sneezing! Don't you just hate it when you are waiting for that release of a sneeze? You prepare for it, your tissue poised, you look up at a light, you take those sharp intakes of breath and then... nothing!... absolutely nothing! Unwelcome guest... Bleughh!
Or you give one almighty belter of a sneeze only to have the reward of wanting to do it all over again. Unwelcome guest... Bleughhh!
I look out of my windows and see the gorgeous blossom, but can't bring myself to go out and pick some of it, let alone try to smell it. Unwelcome guest... Bleughhhh!
The temperatures are getting a little cooler again, but I can't stand a warm house when someone has the dreaded lurgy - it breeds germs!! I need to be in the greenhouse and dealing with these new babies. Unwelcome guest... Bleughhhhh!
So, just a little post for you my friends while I try to recuperate and try to keep the dreaded lurgy away from my chest otherwise complications set in. Unwelcome guest... Bleughhhhhh!
Normal (happier and positive) service will be resumed once this uninvited guest (otherwise known as Person non grata) has decided to return from whence it came. The dreaded lurgy... Bleughhhhhhh!
Any tips or tricks on how to send this visitor off packing would be greatly appreciated. xx
Good luck with keeping the bugs at bay.
Take care... sniff, cough, atchoooo!
