Face ache @ 19:10

Today, according to the Days of the Year website & calendar, is Popcorn Day. At this moment in time I feel like I've been carrying around a face full of popcorn so the thought of eating any turns me off.

I'm currently on day #23 of Nasty Cold MMXVII which on Monday decided to embark on the fever and chills phase so after coming home from work I thought the best place for me would be bed. Something I was very close to repeating on Tuesday.

Yesterday, following a 40 minute steam session in MEGASHOWER, I managed to cure my sinus related faceache in a manner similar to how Jesus cured the leper. Unlike the bearded wonder though, I could only maintain my miracle cure for a short 30 minutes and eventually the pain returned. This morning I felt great though. Feeling slightly smug with myself having thought I had beaten the lurgy. But then at about 11:30am today the pain slowly started to seep back reaching zenith at about 2pm. Now faceache is just lingering, in the background. Like a thug just waiting for me to dare to step out of line one more time.

If you would like to experience an infection of Nasty Cold MMXVII, please send me your address and I will gladly send you one of the many crusty tissues I seem to have accumulated since Christmas. No charge.

Awwww - you poor lamb. I suffer with sinus problems if I get a really bad cold so know how bad it can be. On one particular occasion I'd lost my sense of smell so I did the steamy shower bit too! It worked!!! Suddenly I could smell things again. Ecstatic, I shot out of the shower, rushed downstairs in the altogether and grabbed an onion and sniffed joyously! However, by the time I had got back upstairs all I had was goose pimples and I was back where I started and couldn't smell anything once more. Also when I spoke I sounded as if I'd walked into a door and as for sneezing - it was sheer h*ll!

Much as I adore, love and admire you . . . please don't send any tissues!!!

I think I should get money for the crusty tissues seeing as I've been paying for boxes and boxes of them
