Real, proper sick. With aches and blocked ears and snot and coughing and a midden of used tissues building up around me.
I spent most of yesterday afternoon asleep, and slept until 11.30 this morning. Then I dragged myself out of bed to make magic soup. Can you feel the melodrama? Oh, woe is me.
Now I’m back on the couch, with a box of tissues, pawpaw ointment for my poor nostrils, vitamin C, a mug of hot water, my feet in a patch of sunlight and wishing I had a robot to make me cheese on toast. What cold remedies have you got that will make me better?
