((hugs)) to all those not feeling well at the moment.
Wrap up warm and mind yourselves.

Looksee - congrats on mowing the lawn, i have been thinking about mowing mine but like you it will be a hack job ... decided to leave it for another weekend. I did though tidy out the front and back and plant some lovely spring flowers so I am feeling virtuous.

Yessss, Jelly, I was awake last night - coughing almost continuously. So, yes, if you have a cure, please do share

The thing is, if like me, you cough for weeks, months, years, without there being any chance of you having a cold, get it checked out by a specialist, GP's don't really know until they send you to the top brass. Turns out I have reflux. Meds have fixed me up good and proper. Lack of sleep is my problem now but its great to be cough-free.

And aren't you gardeners the energetic lot, I thought it was too early to cut grass with frost and rain and wotnot about!

The grass never really stopped growing this winter, it has been so mild. It was gorgeous out today, a bit chilly but so nice to see the sun. I think there would have to be frost within a day or two to affect the grass when it has been cut, I've taken the chance anyway, it was really quite wet considering there was a good breeze blowing. If we get really cold weather now I'd say a lot of things will be n trouble as there is a lot of growth.

[QUOTE=looksee;77415819]There's a horrible cold with a cough and chestyness going - I am nearly 3 weeks into it, nearly gone now but still have an irritating little cough, not something I am normally subject to.
.................. QUOTE]

Jesus, I possibly got it of you looksee. Two weeks ago nose running and sneezing and sore from paper towels, then last week bad chest cough and the last couple of days very tired ......... so much that I could not go to daughter's birthday party last night. Today went out driving and after a few hours came home and hit the sack for two hours of sleep. Have been taking cough medicines, drinking enough water etc. Sometimes when I cough I think my head is going to take off. Could there be an O & O virus lurking in boards?

That's it Spread - especially the tiredness! I tried not to breathe on the keyboard, but it obviously got past my virus checker.

Hallelujah! All sickness has disappeared. Up early and not one sneeze, senior moment or salivation . And for this I thank The Lord, The Budda, Mohammed Mucinex tablets and bottle.

Goodnight and Good Morning

No, not for about 10 days. Was going to have a few quick ones to try and relieve the symptoms but decided against. Would usually have a couple of bottles a week. The only shakes are from the cold .......... -15C and have just walked one of the hounds.
