Head Cold, blaaaaahhhh…

It’s official, I have a head cold. But unlike other colds, for some reason I am not coughing at all, just sneezing so much so I am sure I could blow my shoes off. At first, I thought it could be just allergies in overdrive, especially since I was in and out of the kennels, and add to it pollen, and that could have been the recipe that did it, but, I have taken my allergy tablets, and nothing has changed, and my nose is running like a dripping tap. Because I have this I cannot visit M’s mum at the home as they don’t want colds in there as it tends to kill off some of the weaker elderly residents, so I cannot complain. I am sat in his Dad’s kitchen at the table watching the spitting rain outside, trying to get the dogs to eat their dinners, and not spread my germs everywhere. The dogs are not interested in eating, so I guess if I cannot get that done then the probability of me not spreading my germs will be very doubtful.

I decided to cook for everyone and made cottage pie. I could taste it, but not as much as usual, which is a shame as I love my cooking. Needless to say, it went down well, and clean plates all around.

I had a power nap this afternoon when M was visiting his mum, and I am ready for bed now, but it is only 7:30pm. If I was at home, I would have taken myself off to bed and slept through it all. I am crap as I can’t stand being fussed over when I am ill, big or small conditions, I like to get on with it, and get it over with. Fingers crossed it will be gone tomorrow and I can get back to normal.

Yes, I love Calvin & Hobbes!
