For what it's worth, I believe that the OFT will make a decision based on the state of our banking system and not on whether it is fair or not. So sit tight, I believe that they will rule in favour of the banks.:eek:
In the meantime, stay in bed, take plenty of paracetamol ...... and an old Irish cure, rub Vicks on the soles of your feet and then put socks on and stay in bed .....it works (honest!!):A
'How many people can I give flu for Christmas'?
The world will not stop turning if you stay in bed looking after yourself and therefore everyone you would have come into contact with.
Hope you are well in time for your own Christmas celebrations.
It sounds like you have flu (real flu, not man flu;))................and the best place for you is at home, resting and recovering. If you try to get out of bed and go to work, at best you could infect others and at worst you could end up in hospital............*wags finger*.
Work commitments can wait, your health is far more important.............and everyone will understand.;)
I hope you feel better soon.
- gargling with warm salt water to kill the viruses in your throat etc.
- honey and hot lemon drinks (fresh lemon, not the bottled stuff).
- Chicken soup.
- Clean your keyboard after use as keyboards are particularly yukky places to harbour bugs.
- Keep your room a little on the cool side otherwise your nasal passages dry up and bugs just multiply.
- Eat curry if you can, hotter the better. All the allium plants - onions, shallots, leeks, especially garlic - have volatile oils that seem to be antibacterial and/or antiviral.
Hope you feel better soon. If I were you, I'd stay home tomorrow if at all possible or do the interview from home to save you venturing out in the cold. Then that way when it's done, you can crawl back into bed to recuperate some more.
I know you didn't say you'd physically go anywhere, but do it over the phone or by webcam or something.
