As fit as a fiddle

Feel under the weather

Come down with (something)

Be stuffed up

Get over


Last Friday I woke up really excited. I had lots of plans for the weekend and I was looking forward to the end of the work day. I went into to work feeling as fit as a fiddle. As soon as I walked in, I realized a lot of my coworkers weren’t there. I asked the secretary why and, after blowing her nose, she said everybody was sick. Ha! But not me! I never get sick! Lucky me! Or so I thought… At around 10.30, I started to feel a bit under the weather. I made myself some tea hoping it would help. At 12.30 the first sneeze came. That’s when I knew I was coming down with something. By 4.30 I couldn’t even speak properly! I was all stuffed up and by 5 o’clock I felt so sick I had to leave work early and go home. Now it’s Monday. The perfect weekend is over and I’m still in bed because I haven’t gotten over this stupid cold!
