A head full of socks.
I have had the mother of all colds this week; I have been off work and scarcely able to get out of bed for the last four days. I know that there is a lot of it about, but I have been astonished at how truly horrible I have been feeling. It is not Flu, but it is at the very heaviest end of a straightforward cold. Since Sunday I have spent and average of 15 - 17 hours per day wrapped up in bed with the radio for company. Not pleasant at all. I have been spending a lot of time in that hazy world between awareness and a fully dream state. My slightly befuddled condition has left me in a state of mind that I refer to as a "head full of socks". You know when you do the washing and after emptying the machine and hanging up your clothes, you often get left with a pile of mismatched and half remembered socks. If you are anything like me, you tend to put off sorting this kind of thing out and coming back to it some time later - this is what my mind has felt like for much of this week.
You may wish to tune in to local free radio station WNKR this Sunday; they are resuming broadcasts on 1476KHz medium wave and they are always an entertaining and informative listen.
Ian forwarded me the video clip below; it pretty much sums up what Bexleyheath is like. See what you think and maybe post a comment?
