Oh no! How did that happen? How does one get The Sniffles in lock-down?
It began with A Sneeze and quickly turned to successive sneezes, bunged nose, gritty weepy eyes, a cough and headache, and a bit of chest discomfit.
A perfectly Normal Cold to go with the change of seasons and usually I wouldn’t think very much of it. But it has been five weeks since I last set foot off our property. I’ve not even been for a walk down the street, and both son and grand-daughter are healthy.
So how did I “catch” this thing?
Not that it matters, really. Having a cold is quite common, yet somehow it now makes me feel slightly guilty, like I have been doing something dreadfully wrong.
I know that if I was out in the community people would be looking askance at me – probably cross the road even! – whereas before nobody would have taken any notice.
How times change.
Today my Sniffles are much improved and I went for a short wander around the garden and photographed these flowers. Colour cheers up even the dullest of days.
Be happy J
