In three days, I will not be very popular.

That is if anyone can actually tie it back to me.
I know exactly who gave it to me, and when.
Saturday, at the hospital out of hours surgery, an old lady arrived in a taxi and booked in.
As she took her seat, the cleaner addressed her by name and we all got to know what was wrong with her.
‘I’ve got one of these ‘orrible flu bugs,’ she announced proudly. ‘Headache, chesty cough, temperature, sweats. Feel bloody lousy, and I’ve had me flu jab too!’
I’ve had a tickly cough for a few days. This is not unusual for me when the weather changes, so I’ve been taking the occasional dose of cough mixture and doing OK.
Monday I wasn’t feeling too bright and had a sore throat, but I’d had a bad night, and Hubby said I was snoring.
Last night was the same, so out came my mate Vic and I slept pretty well for a few hours.
This morning I awoke with a horrendous headache, sore throat and my cough was worse.
I took a couple of paracetamol and felt better, but I have possibly infected the darts team (luckily we don’t have a match next week, but sorry girls), and although I was very conscientious when I coughed, I have probably passed on this ‘orrible flu bug to everyone in the doctor’s surgery today.

Hubby is keeping his distance, but it won’t do any good. We share everything, so he’ll go down with it for the weekend.

Tomorrow we shall be stocking up with the flu remedies as what we thought was a second pack in the OTC box was in fact plasters as that box fitted better than the original in the space available.
Oops on more counts than one.
Sorry folks.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Let us hope you don’t, now, add bedbugs to the bad bugs!
    Sad that it is universally known as flu these days. It used to be such fun to trot out the corny, ‘You opened the window and influenza!’
