    First day, horrendous, cant get off the bed. MONDAY

    third day, can come out of bed for soup and maybe light brekkie, back to bed.
    fourth day can eat normal food and binge watch game of thrones under blanket
    with intermittent non interrupted naps

    Personally I know I'll pick up maybe one, possibly 2, headcolds in a year. I accept it, but equally I tend to throw them off in a couple of days. I think that's because my immune system has had plenty of practice

    The only thing I now actively try and avoid is the flu. I've never had it, but now take the view I may as well have the jab, which I've done for the past 2 winters. It does not guarantee anything but even if you do get the flu I'm told it is likely to significantly ease the symptoms

    Hot whiskeys are great. After being flat out drinking them for 4 or 5 days your cold is gone and you can't remember having one

    Brilliant, thank you. Actually have tears from laughing :D
