cough

MC came round late last night with what I can only describe as whooping cough. If I didn't know better I would swear he'd spent 20 years working down a coal mine. So I made him soup, did his washing and generally soothed him, and wondered exactly when I turned into his mother. Mind you I was so tired by the time we went to bed that at least I slept through the snoring, if there was any. Still, I was sad to leave him in my nice warm bed while I went off to work this morning - although I'm not missing the spluttering. Can a person get cotton lung from working on a website?

He's not a closet smoker?

Nope, but you can from a few boxes of Marboro Filters the night before.

Or maybe he's a more discerning smoker...cigar lounge visits perhaps?
Or the pollution in London has gone off the charts. :(

god knows where it's come from - he's not a smoker (partial to the odd cigar but not lately). however the joyful thing is that he has now passed it on to me :(

*splutter*

Thanks FA. Am sniffling through the day :(

Kab - vegetable and herb my dear! But the favour has since been repaid... I have been in meetings all day and when I got back to my desk I found he'd popped in and left a packet of smarties for me. yay :)
