Brought to my knees by a damn cold

Actually, I was fluffy till I went flat, yesterday! I've been knocked out by the common cold. To be more precise I've been infected during the latest mandemic.

I'm aware that this particular strain of of the cold is extremely dangerous, and I'd like to take things easy today, but I can't. I have to go out, which is stupid and puts me and other men at risk, but I have to do it.

I'm feeling very weak at the moment, but I'll try and keep you up-dated on the situation. Thanks for all your emails of support.


  1. Tim, you have my deepest sympathy, i have had this so called man flu off and on now for months, my wife swears it is only a cold and insists that i carry on as usual, but like you say if we venture out whilst in this condition we are only infecting other men and in turn getting re-infected ourselves, why dont these women understand that if we where allowed to languish at home for a few days being waited on hand and foot we might get better ! get well soon.

    I'm wondering if Mrs. Opart has offered to crack open a window yet? You know, just for fresh air.

  3. The non-word word/code your site required me to type in so that I could post my last comment was MENCENTH, perhaps as in, "Oh no, Tim caught that manflu for the mencenth time!"

  4. I hope you feel better soon!
