it is normal to get some, but you could try and beef yourself up a bit. it is hard to prioritise yourself. I was always being ill but cut my work hours down to get some me time and it made a huge difference.I tried to improve my diet, took extra vitamin c at the first signs, healthier diet and tried to do some exercise also. I think i went to see a homoeopath too! It can get worse when they are at school, so try and chill a bit (LOL)

not sure if it's relevant but was recently advised to gargle with either salt water or listerine twice a day to kill bugs/viruses, as they hang around in your throat and nose for a couple of days before starting their dirty work... also was advised to swab the inside of my nostrils with the salt water though I have not taken it up yet...

Children are a health hazard, they come home with a sniffle and cough and you collapse for the next two weeks in a feverish coma. Yes candj we have all been there.


The only year I had no sniffles etc was when I swam every day, I guess the chlorine (mixed with the schoolkids urine) must have given me some kind of weird protection.

Thanks for sharing your experiences. I have been contemplating a four day week, so womanofdulwich's advice seems particularly apposite. I did work a four day week for a couple of months earlier in the year as a way of using of holiday. I have to say, I felt like a different person during that period.

    • A quick Google found this, amongst other things: "Social impact models are frameworks or approaches that guide how organizations or initiatives address social or environmental problems."
    • "If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it must be a duck" comes to mind Unfortunately, a large number of cyclists do exhibit selfish amd anti social behaviour which, regardless of how many good cyclists there are, is seen as the norm.  It's a bit like one car driver jumping a red light and all car drivers getting tarred by the same brush. Perception is the issue and if cyclists all obeyed the rules, everyone would be less anti them but unfortunately that isn't the case 🤔
    • Crikey. How did you know it was Immigration Enforcement? 
    • Saying cyclists are the most antisocial people in London isn't helpful.  Nor is the Standard referring to cyclists as lycra clad louts  Yes we can have an adult conversation.  But emotive knee jerk nonsense is not going to achieve this and just plays into the hands of those wanting a manufactured culture war
