  1. Staying cool. A week off work - went to my lovely doctor this morning as supposed cold won't depart and still feel like merde. Getting too stressed - prescribed rest and relaxation in garden and a magic bullet to get to sleep at night for three days. Still feeling merde though - lots of water and healthy food, as normal. Grim when you get sick despite doing all the right things - doctor did have a laugh with me!

      Feeling guiltless reading in the shade! This sodding virus is laying many lower than me it seems...

      Nasal passages like sand paper and a cough to wake the dead. It was the inability to sleep that got to me...

      I've been bad too Spike. Started with sore back of nose then spread to rest of throat before a mild fever and the usual aching limbs, runny nose etc. Just trying to clear it from my chest now.

      Sounds like the same bugger. It has put a few elderly folks in the village into hospital - can barely take Mylo for a walk, let alone run. Running is banned by doctor for 3 days but Mylo doesn't get that. Happy side is I'm otherwise extremely fit from all my sports - blood pressue 103/70 and lovely resting HR 0f 56. Mylo currently chilling in the shade after we watered the veggies. That was enough exertion for today...pup can exercise himself. No way - I'll be out throwing ball albeit staggering!
