Anyway, the cold is just about gone but has left a tonsil stone in my case and a perforated eardrum in my mother's. And at some point last night I punctured my hand. Small hole, lots of blood so it must be deep. I have a bandage on it and will check it later to see whether it has stopped bleeding properly. It's too small to be stitched so I'll just have to keep pressure on it.
On the plus side, the day that the management stole from us they have given back. huzzah!
