It's been more than a few days since my last post and I haven't been ignoring all my blogging friends - as if I would? It's just that 'the man' has a bit of a cold. Now if I said that another woman had a cold you'd think nothing of it but because the word 'man' has been added I hope you all understand what I'm dealing with. The cough is 'the worst', so too are the chills, the temperature, the aches... Being the wonderful man that DH is he also took the chance to share his bug. Of course my chills, cough, temperature couldn't possibly be as bad. I mean, how else would I still be able to cook, clean, do the laundry and work in the shop?
I think what has really got to me about all of this is the problem of getting some of the over the counter remedies for the symptoms. Just a few years ago they were no problem, but now -huh, almost impossible unless name, address etc is recorded by the pharmacist following a short interview. All because some rotten sods have decided to use or should I say, abuse the effective ingredient.
So, if any of you have a magic remedy for 'man flu' PLEASE send it, and maybe this 'woe man' might get better too.
