I feel dreadful today which is such a huge improvement as to how I have been feeling the past week and a half that I am damn near jumping for joy. I know this is a little rigid but I hate people who have the cold. Well, I hate when people who have the cold insist on coming out in public and treating us all to a blow by blow account of their suffering. I simply can’t bear the sniffing, spluttering, gasping, coughing and groaning. So of course I have been driving myself nuts with the sniffing et al, and the other day I caught myself apologising to myself for the annoying noises. I am happy to say that I didn’t reply.
