Still sniffling but at least I got out and about today. There was a dog to be walked, groceries to be purchased and photos to be taken. I did pull out of the proposed photo meet-up at Knockabbey Gardens but hopefully we'll do it again some time.
It always amazes me how miserable the common cold makes you feel, while at the same time, it makes me appreciate the fact that overall I enjoy good health.
Of course, one can't reach for a tissue these days without being asked if one has swine flu. There's disinfectant gel at work, in public buildings and schools. Not wanting to underestimate the potential seriousness of swine flu, I can't help thinking that it was a great 'silly season' story and hopefully it won't turn out to be as bad as was predicted.
