Two meanings for cold here, the temperature is definitely dropping and I have packed away my summer clothes and replaced them with wool jumpers. The change seems to have happened really quickly after the warm sunshine last week.
Perhaps the abrupt change of weather is responsible for the second type of cold, horrible, sniffly, sore throat like sandpaper, shaky, shivery, achy cold. My oldest son succumbed first and then in the way families share things he passed it on to me. I very rarely get colds but this one has totally wiped me out, I've slept for the best part of three days just managing to pull myself together for the school run and to get something resembling a meal on the table.
I'm feeling a bit less sleepy today so perhaps I can fit in a bit of gentle knitting between my naps.
