Apparently once it is in your house and on your couch there is no safe distance and come the weekend I was starting to feel the symptoms, even though we both regularly take Echinacea, we were both still felled by this germ. It never ceases to amaze me how unwell it can make you feel. It went straight to my sinuses giving me a terrific headache.
I spent the entire day on Sunday on the couch, after a very feverish night's sleep, in my dressing down under the duvet feeling very sorry for myself. I couldn't even be bothered to knit, that's how lethargic I felt. So as son was on the road to recovery it was his turn to play nurse and pander to my every whim.
However it is now Monday morning and I am feeling a lot better, and will struggle into work like a good soldier.
