Winter survival

Quiet weekend. Uninspiring. Been sleeping, a bit of grocery shopping, couple of beers, nothing spectacular. The cold I had looks like it's fizzled and not a big deal. I take a tablet morning and night of vitamin C, 1,000mg. I'm sure that must help with the winter colds going around Sydney.

It's been very cold here this last week. Not surprising I got a bit of a sniffle going to work early in the mornings in that. Torrential rain, icy winds. It's the wettest July here since 1950 they said. Really heavy rain, constant over hours. Skies very dark, almost like twilight at times. But it looks like I'm surviving it OK. 

It's always a worry in the back of your mind getting some sort of terrible cold in the winter with HIV. Especially with people sneezing and coughing on the buses. The flu shot this year they say has been good, apparently exceptionally accurate this year to the strains that came from the northern hemisphere winter. Have not had any kind of flu at all yet. Looks promising, particularly with the sort of weather we've had here lately.
