Better...

I am feeling better thanks to lemsip and industrial quantities of fruit.
So, being bored I watched a lecture about cryptography...interesting but not enough detail
I joined twitter.com....haven't discovered what the point of that is yet
I sort of surfed around and look what I found, clickety click
......... a veritable goldmine for those of you who like unusual cover versions. This should keep me away from my essay for a while, hurrah!!!

my god, you're obviously worse than you thought - have a wiskey (with an H I suppose as you're Irish) add honey, the juice of a lemon and some hot water, down it in one. Afterwards you'll realise you felt quite well :)

Hi realdoc, I was just going to suggest a hot lemon and whisky toddy but ziggi beat me too it. I had a similar lurgi, and am feeling miles better at last - evidence based result for whisky I think! Hope you feel better tomorrow.

the fruit is going to have its day, you know.

It's clear to me that the only possible purpose of twitter is to give people a way to quickly share their own irritation, loneliness, boredom or smugness when they have exactly 20 free seconds of time. At least, that's what I use it for..

retroCrush looks intriguing!

Glad you pulled yourself together. we needed your assistance, with both bat and ball. I'm sure the fresh air put some colour* back in your cheeks.



*Blue, mostly

I sympathise realdoc - I seem to have the same - aching joints, painful breathing, runny nose and general grumpiness due to the above.

Just going to swig some Benylin4flu mixture - I'm sure it should be taken off the market - it's very strong but awfully good.

Take care now. x

lemsip and fruit are my standard things consumed when ill.

Yes life is slowly getting back to normal, except this year unlike most years I will not be watching the Hootenanny but will be going to some black tie effort. Just what I needed another night on the tiles.

You should have rubbed the bacon fat into your chest realdoc. That keeps the colds out. You might think I am joking, but my mother used to rub goose fat into our chests when we were kids and she was a qualified nurse.

Glad you are feeling much better. I think there might be something in this 5 fruit and veg a day thing.

I have been a bit poorly too. Got a rose thorn stuck deep in my finger the weekend before Christmas and I tried to ignore my ever-swelling finger and hand until I could no longer move it at all by the 27th. My GP said I just made it to him in time or I would have needed hospitalisation for intra-venous antibiotics. Was he just trying to scare me to brighten up his day do you think?

I'm with First Nations ... something about the bacon fat. Glad you're feeling somewhat better ... your sense of humor should pull you through. xoxo
