    I have just got over a nasty bout of the lurgy and a chest infection, just getting fighting fit again and now OH has gone down with "Man Flu"
    I feel I am getting another cold
    It is a nasty wet and windy morning and I can't wait for a nice hot sunny summer. I am fed up to the teeth with winter

    Moan over, sorry, now to get on with the day as best I can

    I feel for you.. I have had a bad chest infection for just over 3 weeks now, it has really knocked the stuffing out of me.
    As for this weather, not 2 mins ago i marked my status on FB saying, roll on summer, i hate winter.:)

    Luckily, I seem to avoid colds and bugs etc. although most around me have succumbed in recent weeks! ;)

    I must admit though, I am more than ready for Spring to arrive!

    Just poked my head out the door and it's chucking it down and very windy :mad:. I'm not really a fair weather walker, but I can't say I'm too sad today that Jack still seems chilled on the sofa at the moment instead of chomping at the bit! :D

    Not heard from you for a while and wondered about you. Hope you feel better soon, it does knock you back I know

    Onwards and upwards to summer, I need a good dose of sunshine, as you do I should think

    Chest infections really knock the stuffing out of you. I haven't had one for a few years now, but I still remember how horrible it was. I'm glad you are on the mend.

    At work, people are dropping like flies with some illness or another. So far I seemed to have escaped catching anything really horrible.

    Good to hear you are both feeling better.

    Took me and hubby ages to get over our heavy colds over Christmas. He hardly ever gets ill but this one laid him out.

    March signals the start of my allergies :( eye drops, nasal spray and antihistamines, spring is rough but I still look foward to the end of winter.

    Yeah! My OH huffs and puffs, constantly when he is poorly. Drives me nuts! :D

    Glad to hear you are now feeling better, not a nice thing to have. Makes you feel really lousy, hope your OH is soon feeling better.
    Both of us had it in the new year, took almost four weeks before we started to feel better.
