Rotten cold day.

I really wasn't fit to go to school today.
I phoned in sick at 7.30am but had to leave a message on the normal number as I don't know the direct "sickie" number.
This has cost me a brilliant attendance record & a day's pay.
I saw G off to visit JR, in the lotus, got up & went to Coleshill for a paper & milk, planning activities for the remainder of the day. By the time I got home I was knackered & apart from a couple of loads of washing (compulsory on fine days) I did nothing, apart from sit in the conservatory, read the paper & attempt to do the crossword.
I have to admit to "doing a Grandad & filling in all of the answers to yesterdays crossword from today's paper. I do manage the "quick" one.
We haven't had a daily paper since I retired - one of the economies, plus the lateness of delivery - we have just taken out a six month subscription, which costs little more than the Saturday paper. Only snag is that you have to fetch it!

I've got through half a box of tissues & a number of cold cures today.
They haven't worked.
I'll try the alcohol with honey & lemon & go to bed.

Well, I stay up late to post a blog, despite poor health, & no-one is interested enough to comment.
I shall go to bed early, sniff, cough & read,
