Feeling better

Am off to work now, feeling much less cold-ridden than yesterday. This is obviously the time of year for colds - I quote Samuel Pepys' diary entry from 27 September 1663:
At night to supper, though with little comfort, I finding myself both head and breast in great pain, and what troubles me most my right ear is almost deaf. It is a cold, which God Almighty in justice did give me while I sat lewdly sporting with Mrs. Lane the other day. I went to bed with a posset, being very melancholy in consideration of the loss of my hearing.
I don't think I can put down my cold to anything more exciting than the rain in London on Monday!

Well, I hope you went to bed with your posset anyway.

Glad you are feeling better!

Never be tempted to go do anything with a posset. Milky and yucky! Excellent for gumming up the congested chest.

I wonder how Mrs Lane was feeling?

Cor blimey! Of course any Pepys fan knows the whole saga that started in October 1668, but it's fascinating to hear that the relationship went on after he stopped writing about it! I bet they met up for the occasional reminder of times past as well.
