I don't think I had a cold in the years 2013/14. I am now experiencing my third cold this year. While it is not so messy discharge wise, oh the aches. The jets of water from the shower head hurt my skin. I was about to work ten days without a day off, but I have reduced that with at least today and tomorrow off work. I am really too unwell to go to work. I tried to see my doctor today for a sick certificate for work, but he is on a week's leave. Every other doctor was booked out today, I am thinking by hungover people after Melbourne Cup Day. I will see my second favourite doctor tomorrow. My first favourite is Asian and my second favourite is Irish. One must always choose an attractive doctor and more importantly, one who is a good bit younger than yourself. I have had a doctor die on me when I was younger and his desertion of me made me quite cross. So inconsiderate. My current fave doctor is competent and does not harass me about life style choices, just occasionally and gently reminds me that I am looking a little porky. I've probably been seeing him for fifteen or more years.
I am not sure what made me do it. Maybe the thought of some extra time off work and a chance to recover from a computer disaster, but today I downloaded and installed Windows 10. It is a little different but I can cope with it. Nothing seems lost and the world did not end. It took about one hour thirty minutes from go to whoa. Too early to judge if it is better, but I am not having problems.
Funny, last Sunday we went to the big Gerry shop in Moorabbin with a mind to buy a new desktop computer, but that is a story yet to be told.
