Winter cold

December 12, 2007 at 11:44 am 4 comments

I’m not impressed. I seem to have got myself one of those nasty winter colds, with coughing and sneezing and generally not feeling very good stuff going on. I started last week, and I was off work in bed for 2 days. I made it out of bed on Friday night (hello? Christmas season? Parties to attend!) and was not able to do any justice to the good wine on offer that night. I hibernated for the next few days and made it back to work on Monday. But I still feel less than 100% and my voice is missing in action.

I’m confused. I don’t know where this has come from. I’m normally healthy. I’ve been eating loads of tangerines recently so I’m full of vitamin C.

All I can think is that I am having a throw back. My body has realised that I haven’t had a nasty winter cold in 4 years, since I moved back to Jamaica. And has decided that it is time for me to have one to recollect every winter in Britain.

Maybe I need to go and lie on the beach this weekend, to remind my body that I’m back in the Caribbean and that this winter cold needs to move on out of me.

    I’m sorry you’ve been under the weather. Hope you feel much better soon. Continue to load up on the Vitamin C.

    I hope you feel better soon, because you are right, there are a lot of parties going on this season! Seems you picked up a bug, just keep taking your vitamins and fluids.

    I agree with Esteban. My grandaunt used that on me once.
