I've got a cold. I decided to try again with First Defence, this nasal spray that appears to be a high tech way of banishing a cold if you spot it early enough: then I researched it and it seems that all it does is wash away the bugs in the back of your nose by making your nostrils stream. Or maybe it's a bit more sophisticated than that...
Certainly, this hasn't been one of those knock-out colds but who knows whether that's because of the spray or the bug, but it's moved a lot faster than usual, from the tickly phase to the underwater-gold-fish-bowl-on-the-head effect, in three days. So on balance I'd probably use it again.
Meanwhile, discovered this weekend while house-hunting for the boyf, that doubling your budget (he's done rather better out of the property market than me in the past) doesn't necessarily make the houses any less scuzzy/dirty/badly decorated. They're just bigger.
As a result of the cold and house-hunting , and also because I have been monitoring the tutor group on my Open University course, I've got nowhere on writing this weekend. But this week will be quieter.
Lovely Link of the Day:
These guys have been hoping for a house price crash for ages. Hmm. Judging from what I see on the streets of London, it ain't happened yet. Still, it makes interesting reading.
