On your advice and because I feel crap have taken the day off and have been ordered to stay in bed. You will need to entertain me today as my head hurts too much to read and I can only take so much daytime TV.

bellavita Mon 15-Sep-08 09:01:29

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 09:03:27

you are wierd and possibly sicker than me.

Sorry I just sneezed all over the monitor, hope I have not infected you.

bellavita Mon 15-Sep-08 09:06:07

Mmm keep the germs away please!

Right, I am off to do some errands now, can I get you anything while I am out?

Bless you! Here - have a tissue.

A spoonful of honey makes lemsips more palatable.

Get thee to bed!!! But first, take two paracetamol, two ibuprofen, nice comforting hot drink that you actually like, and sleep whilst your white cells fight the nasty viruses. Or stay and natter. As the first might help physically and the second mentally!

I am on the sofa under the duvet on the laptop.

I have manky cold and a chest infection today, and am working from bed. Sort of. On the basis that I am feeling too grim to be downstairs in my office, but a bit too well to not do anything.

Big sympathy - am going to have a really hot bath in a minute

Gosh, how can you look at a screen if you are feeling this bad? Not being admonishing, just astonished as I find looking at a pc screen very hard when ill.

Are you alone in the house? I find illness the perfect time to wallow in favourite dvds.

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 09:16:50

Dp has just said the same to me actually DDG.
Dp is at home as he works from home.

DumbledoresGirl Mon 15-Sep-08 09:18:55

But no children at home? Go on, indulge yourself! There is something wonderfully comforting about watching a favourite film (or actor!) when ill. You may well drift off to sleep half way through, but as you have the remote right next to you, all you have to do is press a button and go back to where you last remember watching. (I am a woman of simple pleasures!)

DumbledoresGirl Mon 15-Sep-08 09:22:31

Shhhhhh! I think she has nodded off. wink

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 09:22:43

am going to sleep now.

DumbledoresGirl Mon 15-Sep-08 09:23:49

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 09:25:03

DumbledoresGirl Mon 15-Sep-08 09:26:13

Is it clean? wink

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 12:29:58

DumbledoresGirl Mon 15-Sep-08 13:57:54

Hoorah! Feeling brighter for having slept?

DrNortherner Mon 15-Sep-08 14:00:00

I am at work and feel a bit shit. Headache, hot, sniffly and sneezing.

Have spin clas boked at 6.00pm and thinking I should cancel.........and do a sickie tomorrow...

twinsetandpearls Mon 15-Sep-08 14:17:57

please don't do a spin class, they are bad enough when healthy.

I felt better for a while but feel awful again. I am so hot and my head is banging. I may have to leave you all now and go back to sleep.
