Sometimes I hate the human body!

I've had the most awful cold for the past week and a bit. It's one of those really annoying ones where you think it's gone and the next day it's back with a vengeance.

It also keeps making me sneeze, which is really annoying.

It was terribly frustrating because we had booked to go to Amsterdam for one night last week and both of us felt rotten. We had to go because we'd already paid for everything, but I fear it was not as wonderful as it could have been. The people were lovely, the museums were awesome, but we only managed to do a fraction of the Rijksmuseum that we wanted to do because we both flaked out.

I am way behind on my NaNo thanks to this cold as well because it seems to diminish brain capacity to half. All I've wanted to do is sleep. I've had all the creative drive of a small sack of potatoes! This week I am trying my best to catch up, but I'm not sure I'm going to make it. Today (once I have finished this) is going to be NaNo day only. I am going to turn off everything else and just try and get words on a page. Even if they are bad words! Wish me luck.
