I have a cold. On Monday I was very bunged up, with a sore throat and feeling grim. On Tuesday I was snotty, blowing my nose every five minutes. Today I'm a bit less runny-nosed but coughing. I've had a mild headache on and off all week, and I'm knackered.
I don't have a fever and it's certainly not the flu. I get the impression quite a few people would go into work in this state: "it's only a cold". What do you think?
