Counting the cost !!

Hello,J/Folk

Late doing my entry today,I have been to work,nothing out standing happened,unless you count the library man when he came into the office,saw me and said "Your not normal".........No says I, I dont do normal!of course he meant to say your not the normal lady,as he explained all embarrased,to ease his embarrasment I told him I knew what he meant,but I still dont do normal !

I think the cold has gone,well I feel a whole lot better than I did  at the beginning of the week.Set me thinking ,how much even a cold can cost,........paracetamol,tissues,honey&lemons.Jelly sweets (because Im poorly)chocolate in case I dont fancy the jelly sweets,chicken soup because a journal friend told I should, a little vic thingy you stick up your nostril and inhale.And then storys attached to colds,My Mother used to say ,it will take its course,and ,they are three days coming ,three days here and three days going,and then of course you feed a cold and starve a fever.My Mum always kept a little pot of goose grease to rub on our chests when we were little,it stank!!,Any way Im off the danger list now!!                  So the weekend starts here P O E T S DAY.>push of early tomorrows Saturday!!!

           Have a good one folks  Jan xx

I have never done normal. Yes, everything costs these days even stuff for a cold, glad you are feeling better though.

I remember all that and the Vic vapour rub that was rubbed in religiously to the point it used to make my eyes water!!!! I don't think it is as strong as it used to be!
Glad you are feeling better!

My Mum told me of goose grease lolol and I've heard of those saying's.  I use Olbas Oil, it's quite good but I remember Vic very well on the bridge of your nose to ease it.  Very glad you're feeling better xxRache
