Daily prompt: Frigid


This is going to be a short one. Frigid! I hate the word. It’s meaning has changed over the years from simply ‘cold’ to more serious sexual connotations. And a more sexist word I have yet to hear. In its sexual sense, it only ever applies to women. You never ever hear of a man … Continue reading Daily prompt: Frigid

Full of cold …


Yep, I'm full of cold. It started with a bit of a cough at the beginning of the week and it's now reached the 'messy' stage. Problem is, that on Saturday, we are all going for our annual 'flu jab'. I've been told, that with any prosthetic heart valve, the flu vaccination is a very good, … Continue reading Full of cold …

The ground frost never cleared at all yesterday, and it was quite eerie driving, early this morning, through the frost laden mist. Still hasn't cleared … Continue reading Cold !!!!!

A little more ….


   Today has gone very well. The cold that started on Friday has hit the ‘tickly cough’ stage and the runny nose and sneezing has all but gone. I should be fully fit(ish) by tomorrow. Youngest has been really good this weekend, with no real issues at all. In fact, he has been quite the … Continue reading A little more ….
