Feeling sorry for myself! I've got a stinking cold and my throat hurts and if I'm not coughing up junk it's pouring from my nose. It must be flu jab time as I always get a cold when I'm supposed to queue up with all the ill people to be injected with the virus I'm trying to avoid!?
But! No matter how blocked my nose is I can still smell the awful stench that is permeating its way around our house. We've just managed to get rid of the stink of fish which we blamed on the neighbours but happened to be a light fitting at the top of the stairs! The previous owners of the house had used the wrong size fitting plastic part at the end of the light flex and subsequently when the light went on the bulb heated up the plastic and the smell of fish wafted around the house.
Now we have the stench of rotting cabbage not dis-similar to the smell when black cat brought a mouse into the house and it died behind the fridge. I can't find where the fuck its coming from! Arrggh! The phone guy is coming round sometime this morning between 8 and 12 so I'm stuck indoors. He's going to think I'm crazy sat in the rotting stench house with all the windows open wearing my coat and hat.
Where did I put the Valium?
