I have somehow managed to catch a cold. I have no idea how I picked it up as I am fanatical about hand washing, wiping down surfaces etc. It's a bit dispiriting to say the least that all my obsessive precautions were all for nothing.
Like all of us, I absolutely dread chest infections, my temp goes sky high and I feel really ill. My breathing was awful for weeks after the last one and the cough lingers on for a very long time.
This time, miraculously, no chest infection. This is the sixth day and all I have left is a stuffy nose and a very slight cough.
I've been racking my brains about anything I've been doing differently that would possibly stop a cold developing into a nasty bout of bronchitis and I can't think of a thing other than the weather.
I wondered if anyone else had an explanation
