In amongst the fun of getting The Lemon fixed, both The Lady of The House and I have come down with the same ripper of a cold-in-the-head at the same time.

We’ve been a pair misery-gutses, I’ve been off work since Wednesday, the LOTH since Thursday. Today was an annual leave day for us both because the kids have day off school. We had been going to have a noice family day out somewhere. Instead, the chaps have been lying low while their Mum and Dad mope around feeling sorry for themselves.

Now Youngest Son says he thinks he has it on the way as well. I hope not, because it’s a mighty powerful one this. The Snot Fairy had extra strong magic in her wand when she cast it in our direction.

I feel like putting a sign on the door: “Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here”.

I spose it will be sorted in a few days.


Aww poor snot box. Nothing worse than man flu . . except perhaps woman flu. Feel better!

It’s funny how we forget just how bad a BAD COLD is until we suffer from one again…. If only we could find some kind of use for all that phlegm we produce…. Get well soon and both of you enjoy feeling miserable together!

“Snot Fairy” Excellent phrase. Sounds kind of “kiddy” upon first hearing but there is a subversive anti cutsie whiff about it. Thanks for a chuckle.
