My most used phrases during winter!

Just a bit of an easy, breezy and hopefully a little humourous post today.
Winter is truly kicking in here in Ireland and while it has it's pro's.. (like wooly jumpers, cute hats, scarves and gloves and of course Christmas!) I always find myself focusing on it's cons.. I came up with this post sitting on the bus on my way home from work, some arsehole had decided it would be a good idea to open all of the windows, and I didn't want to be the loser that climbed over every old man, working woman and junkie to close them, so there I sat freezing my nips off, and thinking of all of my most commonly used phrases in the winter!

Illness related..

I've probably mentioned before that I have the shittiest immune system! Any bug going and I'll be sure to have it first!

'I'm feeling a bit congested..'
'Do we have any Manuka honey?'
'I'm feeling a bit congested.'
'Did you buy me Manuka honey?'
'Damn why does Manuka honey have to be so expensive?'

'Oh it was me..'
'Do we have any vicks?'
Can you get me some more Panadol?'
