Beckie & Dove, thanks for your concern. Dove I'll be visiting Boots tomorrow morning on my way in work To get some of those supplements. I thought about visiting the doctor to see if they could test my immune system but of course it'll never be right unless I can bleach all visitors as they come through the door.

I forgot to say: I went into the greenhouse today. Found a row of neat little pots with lovely healthy green shoots. I'm delighted! I also have no idea what they are.

The resolution of always putting labels in pots is going well then...

Beckie - I'm trying a vitamin C tablet every night to try and keep me above water. Unfortunately when you ARE the education team rest wont happen. I don't even get the school holidays off I'm starting to think my immune system has given up the ghost. This can't be normal for a 29 year old!

The beef is in the oven: lightly oiled and liberally salt and peppered. I'm now trying to hunt down a good Yorkshire pudding receipe.

Afternoon all. Well I'm able to sit up, get clean knickers on, so I've been back at work (I know a very foolish thing to do and I've suffered badly for it).
Right now however I'm looking at the dust on the windowsills, the ironing pile, and the mountain of paper work... time for a nap first?

Any suggestions on how to cook this afternoons beef joint?

Hey Beaus how's that new home?!

Afternoon all. Managed to get to work, only very nearly throw up during the tour but that was fortunately right at the end and next to the loos! The class seemed to enjoy themselves and I am now tucked back up on the sofa resting and writing invoices. Partner is NOT happy that I went to work. Unfortunately until we win the lottery and I can start training apprentices we're a little stuck in that department.

Reggie is tucked up beside me fast asleep: its a hard life being a dog when there's so much sleeping to be had! He makes such a wonderful guard dog.... of the biscuits. I'm not sure he'd wake up if you tried to steal me (good lord! I'm a fat puffy ball of coughing fits and lucozade!)

Morning all. Day off (yay) so I am laying about most pathetically nursing yet another cold (throat feels as though its in tatters) and sorting insurance quotes, puppy classes and other rock and roll delights they never told you about growing up out before meeting with the boss for a walk at Rother Valley where we'll be introducing the dogs for the first time... it'll be interesting! 

On the way home we might visit a garden centre: I'm looking for ways to keep feet (both dog and partner) off the vegetable beds.
