What Day Is It?

So my cold hit me on Wednesday full blast, I have been coughing and spluttering everywhere and DH and The Boys are staying away as if I have the plague!  They have been bringing me drinks and medicine but from a distance!  To be perfectly honest I don’t want them to get it either!  It is definitely a cold as well, I have taken the test.  I think that we all did so well last year staying away from each other because of Covid that we stayed away from everything so the colds are worse this year. 

I absolutely hate being ill, not only because you feel dreadful but also it makes me get behind with everything, just as I got on top with work and home jobs etc.  It makes me so cross.  It’s like getting half way round a board game and then your turn sends you right back to the beginning again!!!  The house looks like a bomb has hit it, the washing and ironing piles are in a race to see who can be biggest, I haven’t a clue what’s in the fridge, something might be alive in there (!) and Treacle doesn’t know if she is coming or going.  Speaking of which I have to be better before Friday as she has her spa day! 

I was supposed to be Christmas shopping with Jayne tomorrow but cancelled as I am sure she does not want me to infect her! 

Anyway this picture popped into my inbox and cheared me up no end.  My very good friend Susan sent me it, a friend of hers took it, and I hope she doesn’t mind me showing it you.  It is Reno where Susan lives.  It is an amazing picture.

And they have snow, on the mountains!  Saying that it is getting cold here, well cold for us, in that we are scraping the windows of the cars in the mornings.  Hopefully the cold will kill off the cold germs!!

I hope you lovely lot are all well and have a good week. 

Hugs & Sniffly Love, Susie xx

    So glad you enjoyed the picture! We’ve had some snow and later on in the season, there will be snow on the valley floor – Reno is 4,500′, so snow is normal. The downtown casinos do lend a festive air to the picture with all their colors, but I’m glad I don’t actually live in the downtown area!! I hope you are feeling better soon. I think you are right as colds hitting people harder this year…did all the protecting we did last year weaken our immune systems? I’ve been umpiring since April, no mask, near 60 people a night (even getting hugs)…I got the flu in September, but it was actually the mildest I have had it for years – just a week and I was back to normal! I would only wear a mask when forced to and I still saw people (heck, I was even in the hospital twice last year for diverticulitis). I hope your cold goes away because colds have a 7-day expiration date, right!!??
