    I've got [STRIKE]flu[/STRIKE]...

    ok, ok, it's a cold..

    but it really really hurts! :boohoo:

    (or maybe I'm 'virtually hung over' from our virtual party on here last night following my first WI!! :p)

    throat like sandpaper, swollen glads, nose like a babbling brook, head going boom-didy-boom-didy-boom...

    and I want lemsip, lozenges, mashed potato, my douvet and enough painkillers to knock out a small horse :D

    ... it has been very lovely having CD chicken and mushroom soup... chicken soup is the best solution the world over! :D

    ..and I tell ya..sneezing with this much water inside me isn't funny!!!.:sign0007::rotflmao:

    ok :( pain relief, and an early night, but I'm telling you - if that doesn't work, I'll be going to either my nearest farmer or my nearest large city and researching access to ketamin!:eek: That's a horse tranquilizer, right? :D

    you poor thing .. i went to your party and everyone had gone to bed ... :cry:sorry to here your not well, if your glands are swollen you may have an infection, other than paracetamol you could have ibruprofen.. good at reducing temp and swelling.

    aww.. Sarah Lou, thanks for coming.. you must have got there just as cloony et al were in their marigolds doing the washing up! :p

    I've gone for ibruprofen.. had the same rationale you went for.. guess I was really posting on the off-chance that KD would point out the CD small print about being allowed mashed potato on CD if you're dying of FLU!! :character00264:...Actually, I probably couldn't taste it, and wouldn't fancy it... besides the thought of driving to the shop right now has never seemed so far fetched!

    right folks.. i'm off to bed.. night night..

    it was nice knowing you all.. If this cold kills me off, I've had a good life... tell my family I love them very much.. and keep the virtual funeral simple and elegant..

    Thanks for the support guys..

    This is great - I get to moan and feel sorry for myself, and noone's obliged to listen!! Hahaha - and, I can laught without my throat hurting!!

    I've completly lost my voice, and can't even say 'hello' without my throat killing me...

    ...and yet I can chat away on here :D ..and my throat's fine with me gabbling away! :D :D :D

    off to bed and hoping i'll be a bit better in the morning...

    if it's worse not better, I'll finally take people's advice and not go into work, but so far I've kept up with everything I need to do... including reading up on presentee-ism and the cost to businesses when staff are attending work when they should be off sick!! Haha - how ironic!

    nar.. they'll appreciate me being there in body but not speaking!!! :D What a very rare treat!!! :p

    Ok.. finally sent home cause I now have no voice, swollen glands, cold sores.. The LURGEY!!! :D

    On penecillin, Aciclovir TABLETS (didn't you could get zovirax as tablets!), and should probably have taken time off before this afternoon...

    (What they don't know at work, is that I went in super early and dealt with all of my client work so that there's not a single client who'll even know I've been off:angel09:)

    So.. afternoon in the sunshine - Here - I - Come ! ! :D
