On Wednesday my Mum woke up with a stinking cold, it seems nearly flu-like to me to be honest. She’d felt sneezy and nose-blowy the day before but just assumed it was her allergies. As it is she’s feeling chilly (this is the woman who walks around in cropped trousers and sandals in winter), her bones ache and she’s generally got cold like symptoms too.
She’s taking paracetamol and Step-Dad and I have been out to get her some cold remedy stuff and some more tissues. We’re hoping she feels better soon, of course, especially as she’s been moaning since Thursday about how fed up she is!
