Return of the flu

Return of the flu

19 January 2005

I really should have known better. I checked up on Cathie, who seems much better, then went down to file my income tax. Apart from the usual cold symptoms, I felt fine. Got back into the house and fell asleep - something I never do during the day - and woke up about four hours later aching and sweating. The flu has made its return. Rather than bore you with how bad I'm feeling (I guess I'm not the first, and that I won't be the last to get flu), I'm just going to sign off and head up to bed in the hope that I'm better tomorrow.

At least I got my tax done!

Great to see such a powerfully colourful image captured in b&w. Those Lemsip Max's are pretty good, but I find a decent Islay malt will help too (that's one of my excuses for drinking) - or how about some Crabbie's Mac? Get well soon.

Tens que tomar cuidado com a gripe Stu! Um bom remédio é um bom grog bem quente, chà de limão com muito mel et rum!

I think Lisa's on the right track.
Hope by now you're on the mend Stu.

Grat photo of the Lemsip. I envy you that you have your taxes done; I don't envy your flu. Get well soon, Stu.

Great light and composition. Well done.

Keep the fluid intake up & the temperature down.
Guest 19-Jan-2005 20:30
Stu, the best thing you can do is have a really hot bath (the hottest you can stand) with a hot toddy (as strong as you can stand) and stay in the bath for as long as you can stand!! Then go to bed and sleep, I swear you'll feel much better in the morning. Seriously, it works. Hope you feel better soon.

Ian Clowes19-Jan-2005 19:56

The secret is to stay warm, drink lots of fluid and call me in the morning.
Autumn Sky19-Jan-2005 18:47
Sorry Stu, but rest is probably the best thing you can do... ouch taxes... I still gotta do that.
Zak19-Jan-2005 18:38
