Dammit, we both appear to have 'flu like symptoms' which could cover everything from a bit of bad cold to the ebola virus according to NHS direct. I was awake for most of the night, alternately shivering and feeling like my eyeballs were melting (and not in a good way).

I perked up in the morning after a couple of ibuprofen for breakfast and managed to make it round the snowy woods with the dog and do a bit of OU work (cat permitting) before I had to go back to bed again this afternoon. I felt so achy that I had to turf Frank the cat off of me because he was too heavy for my fragile bones. Yuck.

As long as you don't start actually bleeding from the eyeballs, then it's probably not ebola. I'm very sorry you're feeling poorly, and I hope you both get back to good health as soon as possible.

" feeling like my eyeballs were melting (and not in a good way). "

IS there a good way?

Feel better - maybe I should write "Feel better" in the follow up post to this, with you feeling still poorly but in a whole different way, but I'm already here.

So, feel better.

From somebody who lives in the land of Tequila and Mezcal, you shouldn't need to ask about good eyeball melting experiences ... :-)

I'm feeling much better now, thanks!
