This morning the sun was shining beautifully outside but it was still quite nippy. Both my wife and I have had an absolute stinker of a cold for around 2 weeks. So much so we have not been feeling too well at all. Well this morning I did feel better or so I thought. I got up showered dressed shoved a load of washing in the machine made coffee and posted on mylot whilst I drank it. One thing turned to another and before I knew it it was around lunch time. I am still off my food but my wife had something. I thought right I will tackle the kitchen and afterwards make a banana cake. Yes I cleared the kitchen out and washed down all the cupboards and put it all back all neat and tidy. Great now for the cake........erm no I was far too tired in fact felt I had done 2 rounds with Mohammed Ali. Perhaps I was trying to do too much too soon. Oh well never mind the cake can wait its not important. I will make that tomorrow. I do hate having a cold it really takes it out of you. Something that would take half an hour or so to do takes an hour and half. Oh boy never mind! I hope you have had a more fruitful day than I have!

Hope you can take it easy and get over this cold. They do tend to linger.

The colds are really horrible aren't they! Well we have been dosing ourselves up with lemon and honey! I think we are over the worst now. Thank you!

Sorry to hear both of you are under the weather! Christ help and heal both of you! Take it easy. I like chicken noodle soups, mushroom soups, extra vitamin c when I get a cold and seems to help you get over it faster to me. I like to take vitamin d3 for protection from diseases too to build up your immune system. Take care and get well soon!

No Gary, I had another exhausting Sunday. We went to Milan to continue to clear my mother's apartment. There was a dense fog early in the morning and I dislike being on the road with the fog. We worked about 7 hours in the apartment and finally came back home to relax.

OH dear I heard it was very foggy yesterday and apparently this morning too. I have some friends in Italy who are skiing at the moment, They just sent me a message to say it is very foggy this morning! The clearing of your mums apartment must be quite difficult Anna. Sadly it has to be done.

@garymarsh6 Today the fog is less thick, it rains a little. As you say I have to empty this apartment, the sooner the better.

@LadyDuck Yes once its done then it is time to move on. All the time it still has to be done it is like a great weight on your mind. Not pleasant but necessary! Wish I could help you. It takes time Anna!

Take it easy. I hate having colds. That's why I try to avoid it as much as I can. I make sure I have enough vitamin C for protection.

It sounded like you had quite a productive day considering. We will be getting our flu needles soon and in the meantime we don't spend a lot of time in the middle of crowds which probably helps.

I can not take the flu jab it makes me so ill. plus I am allergic to eggs so it is not advisable to have it. I quite enjoyed it to begin with but found it increasingly tiring. Never mind I did it! Good luck with your jabs!

There are so many colds/flu going around lately, I don't really know anyone who has escaped it. I was ill for about three weeks when I got it over Christmas, and for some reason the rest of my family didn't get it. But now they've got it big time, so I hope they don't give it back to me. I hope you are over the worst Gary.

Yes I am Janet but it has been a horrible cold and lingered for just over two weeks. I know my elderly aunts have had it and they have been quite ill with it this time. Usually after a couple of days you start to feel ok but not with this one this time, OH well onwards and upwards eh!

I used a spray thing and started at the top and worked my way down. My wife washed the floor once I had finished, Tomorrow I will do a bit more and I am determined to make the cake as the Grand children will come in the afternoon! Good luck with your cleaning too!
