    I'm coughing and sneezing again as I've got that damned cold back again ! Thought I'd shifted that last week.

    Anyone else suffering with this man flu' ? :p

    Half my office (and certainly half this department) has some form of coldy flu-y type thing.

    Me and Martin have also halved it. I have a headache and a sore throat, he has a cough and a runny nose :)

    Heeey! You could have at least rhymed that - was looking forward to it! :D

    Something like:

    It was the Friday before Christmas and all round the house not a creature was stirring - not even a mouse ...

    ...but then UKdarkstar opened his mouth - let out a great roaring sneeze that rattled and rumbled and ....please don't pass it to we ...er..people on CF...

    :blink...hmmm...yeah can see why you gave up now - lol!

    Get well soon!

    We have got a whole department out today of about 8 people. My manager seems to be at deaths door a little. The parents at home are also at the same door, so i am isolating myself at work and at home so i dont get dragged into the same thing.

    Yuk! :)

    If that's a 'she' she's fed up with your man flu already and wants you to get a grip lol

    If it's a 'he' then it looks like he's suffering from the same...

    (doesn't look very 'cheery')

    Sometimes I get an outstretched paw trying to stop my hand on the keyboard !

    Lol - Hopefully with no claws.
    My queens claws can be really sharp when she swipes you during play - she's an outdoors cat so is always sharpening them in the woods!

    LOL :)

    I had it last week, I felt like **** all week long, heavy legs, bad head, knackered throat, runny nose, hot & cold all the time. I just have a bit of a blocked nose now. My recommendation for cure 2 boxes of sudafed tablets, curry & cigarettes :D

    It's going around everywhere it seems.

    I started to get a cold a couple of weeks ago. I downed a few vitamin C capsules every two hours and in a week, the symptoms (which were relatively mild anyway) had completely disappeared. I feel fine now. :ducks for cover as all the sick people throw their "used" tissues:
