colds and flu

Is it just us or has every household had its fill of winter colds etc this Xmas? We’ve been pretty lousy with it for days. My daughter R’s been the worst; she’s had a terribly sore throat and incessant cough which has prevented her from sleeping properly for nearly a week now. I took her to the doctors two days but they prescribed nothing for her but recommended sleeping sat upright and having her head over a bowl of steam. Not especially helpful particularly as she was very nearly sick in the waiting room after a coughing session. I’ve had a streaming head cold which has been truly annoying. It’s not so bad now but I’ve one really sore nose through all the wiping. Really sore. Go on, I know what you’re thinking, pathetic men. True.
