Bummer, last Tuesday I started developing a "normal" type head cold - had Wed, Thu and Fri off work. Today I went back to the quack and now I have Bronchytis - yea NOT. Everytime I cough (and there's a fair bit of that) my chest feels like it's about to explode - and the headache that comes with it, oh boy, so not good.

Quack gave me another 3 days off work, which would be great if I felt like riding (and I was up to it - one coughing fit and I would probably run off the road). However I need to feel sorry for myself and convalescing. Shit.

At least I am some way through Hendrik Gout's new book "Once Upon a Distant Journey". He is one seriously twisted individual! There has been mention of him coming up to the Ragged Fringe in September - could get very entertaining. Oh, for those that don't know Hendrik, he is a professional author/reported/media guru and rides a V50 II Monza, and bloody hard too.

Jude bought this delightful bug back from Western Australia about a month ago. I caught it off her and it's been giving me shit for nearly three weeks. The initial infection was viral but then I developed a nasty secondary bacterial chest infection. A course of Amoxicillin has dented but not killed it, I'm going to have to repeat. I hate taking pills!

Cold or Flu, My poison is a Whisky Sour, or at least my version of it.
The juice of two or three lemons, heat in microwave, don't boil . Stir in sugar or honey to take the bite out and add two or three full nips of whisky for throat soothing
Repeat over ...and ofer ....ann uvver, etc
Ohh, PS: Get Better guys. The above recipe helps me sleep when I'm crook

Update!

I have been taking my medicine (Rum) on a regular basis and am now able to cough without a bit of lung presenting itself, smell/taste is starting to come back, and the headache is fading slowly.

Thanks all for your suggestions - somethings working and I will have to go back to work tomorrow. 3 days work then off for nearly a week in Fiji to attend a wedding. After that, hopefully, THE BUDGIE!
