Never mind, I had also arranged to take eldest to pub after finishing work at 9pm, so I sat in stoney silence, sober, tilll she bounded in just before 9 to announce she had decided to drive herself as she was getting up early to work this morning so didn't want to get puggled.

Then I started getting the symptons of youngest's cold. Now unable to control my body temperature, not helped by the blazing sun but cold in the shade, and I am at work.

Its got to get better.

That's not luck, that's going out and finding stuff and making your own destiny

Nope, if you are asking about the cold. Possibly getting up a 5am didn't help,nor a busy day at work.

I've been told I can't take cold and flu remedies due to the drugs I am on, so its paracetemol and single malt (purely medicinal, of course) along with some honey and lemon.

Board meeting tomorrow morn is going to be great, NOT

Cheers

You're right, it won't mix well with your pills. You're doing the right thing, plus stay snuggled up and plenty of chicken soup and orange juice. You can use nasal sprays if you get really bunged up I think I made a mistake hugging you before though, don't want a cold right now

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

I don't think an internet hug can pass a bug. Computer virus maybe.

I enjoyed your hug, made me feel warm inside, or have I just wet myself.

Cheers

best one i got involved in was an Iraqi who had managed to lift several 10mm wide one way flaps on the back end of a 4 blade self feeding multi rip circular saw (used to rip 13 foot scaffolding boards to width and had his hand in removing the shavings not only was the 4 circular saw blades a slight hazard to his appendage there was also the serrated drive belts which would have pulled him in

grabbed him and dragged him back at the same time smacked the EMergancy stop and he went off on one
