Hi Everyone. I'm new but have been on a lot today. I'm snuggled up with a bad cold and this is really helping so apologies, but I'm at least having fun. 🎅

I’m home with a bad cold and cough as well Molly, a million things to do and no energy to do them!

Mollymalone6 Fri 20-Dec-19 13:22:40

Awe Sara I can really sympathise (passes box of tissues). Here's hoping we're up and at it tomorrow smile

Welcome Mollymalone

Hope your colds are better tomorrow Sara and Mollymalone.

Sara65 Fri 20-Dec-19 17:46:37

Thankyou Smileless.

I’m worried about passing it around at this time of year, and spoiling people’s Christmas’s

Hi Molly. I hope you and Sara are better by next week.

Mollymalone6 Fri 20-Dec-19 17:55:15

Thanks Nina and Smileless. Like Sara I'm lying low to avoid passing it on. Fridge is empty but not hungry anyway. Maybe tomorrow. Hope you two avoid it tchsmile

Thanks NfkDumpling what a great name smile

It’s rather more apt than I’d like it to be Molly!

Mollymalone6 Fri 20-Dec-19 18:13:34

I can only guess (nfkd) but I admire your spirit in choosing the name 👌

Hi Mollymalone

Beware, GN is addictive ....

I can pop on ‘for a bit’ then I look at the clock and 2 hours have gone by. I might need help ...

Hi Urmstongran 👋. I'm laid up today - hoping I'll be (not) addicted but really appreciating the chat and banter smile. I'll help you anytime tchwink

Welcome, and hope you feel better after a day of lounging! Nothing like rest and hot liquids to make you feel better. It is a great forum to visit.

I pop in and out when i get a chance. I'm in a much different time zone than most of you since i am on the west coast of Canada.

Mollymalone6 Fri 20-Dec-19 18:39:05

Thank you CanadianGran. Yes to hot liquids- I'm planning whisky and honey at bed time lol tchsmile

Hello, fellow suffererssmile
My damned coff'n'cold has just celebrated its 4th week birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY(not) coff'n'cold.angry
Apart from paracetamol,etc. I can't do much about it, but registering here has helped pass the time between coffs and sneezes,
Do you remember the saying back in the day "coughs and sneezes spread diseases"? So I've conscientiously isolated myself - very admirable but.....I'M Lonelysad
Really appreciating the chat and friendship I'm finding heresmile
Get well soon,everyoneflowers

Poor you Alishka.
4 weeks coughing in quarantine - you’ll be going stir crazy! We can all keep you company now & again.

Many welcomes to Mollymalone6 and the hot toddy sounds perfect, hope it worked. At least you'd sleep well grin

Like CanadianGran I'm also in a different time zone, in fact I'm in a different season, it being well into summer here in New Zealand.

Christmas dinner will be a BBQ supervised by my son and although 24th and 26th are supposed to be sunny and probably will be - rain is forecast for Christmas Day.

Soggy salad anyone? grin

Hi Mollymalone

Ditto what Urmstongran said...addictive😊

Hope you feel better soon.
