A few days back, I was reflecting on how fortunate I had been not to succumb to any of the assorted lurgies that have been doing the rounds. I reflected too soon, it seems, as it has now set upon me with a vengeance!
I think it's just a heavy cold, nothing more, but it's pretty rubbish, and I am working my way through oodles of tissues, hot squash with honey, and the occasional Beechams, as well as coughing, sneezing, etc.
It never ceases to amaze me that something as trivial as a cold has the power to make me feel unwell, when serious conditions and diseases are largely devoid of such symptoms.
A quiet day in prospect, writing sermon and Bible study materials I think... so long as I stop coughing for long enough!! Certainly can't be visiting anyone until I'm sure the infection is gone away.
