Not well

All through the winter, when the weather was cold and the heating was broken, I was fine; healthy as a horse, in fact. However, now that spring has sprung and the temperatures are slowly but surely creeping up, up, up, I've come down with the mother of all colds. My head hurts, my eyes burn, my nose runs and my throat feels like it's made of sandpaper, and I have these minutes-long sneezing fits that wear me out while making everyone around me laugh because they say I sneeze like a cat (and why should that be funny? I don't get it). I doubt I'll feel any better tomorrow, but I don't want to be calling in sick on the first day of my second week on the job -- though equally, I don't want to be spreading my germs among my new co-workers, either. What to do? I wish I knew. "Eat kiwifruit", my friend advised; but I think it's a bit late for that. Though, come to think of it, I do like kiwifruit even without hope of benefit from their medicinal quality, so I'll put them on my grocery list for today anyway.

But first, the ironing! Oh, my weekends - how eventful they are!
