I have an immense head cold. When everyone was dropping like flies before Christmas, I becan to feel quite smug as the weeks went by and I was one of the only robustly healthy people left in my organisation.

Joke's on me now. I cant be at any less than a 90 degree sitting position or my sinuses actually burn and my head feels like it's going to explode. I can't lie down. Standing up is best for being able to breathe but that gets old very quickly, particularly when you're feeling rough! Decongestants unfortunately make my heart race like I'm on speed so I am having to tough this out the hard way. Good job I am not remotely whiny or annoying.

My mother the angel came by late afternoon and brought ultrabalm tissues for my poor cracked nose, some Lockets, a smoothie and some Co-op Fairtrade dark chocolate. The Lockets actually help although there are some warnings on the packet about what too much menthol does to your digestive system so I'm taking it easy!

So much for my killer immune system and for claptrapping on to my colleagues about vitamin C, zinc and Echinacea making me invincible!

Hope you feel better soon. Dave had it bad over new years so I know how bad it can be
