It can? Wow! Unfortunately dairy is on the "limit" list so is already mostly missing from my diet aside from a few mugs of tea at the moment.  Best teach the new boss the art of herbal tea!

Morning all. Getting better slowly though I'm wondering what the limits on how much snot you can actually produce is? Nose nice and red for Saturdays wedding but the barn they're holding it in was 2ft under water last night so I don't think they'll worry too much. Looks like my little Landy will be on car park duty as well as getting the groom (their request) to the registry office!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone. I hope the summer weather isn't causing you too much trouble.

Thanks Dove. Rest - to be honest a trip to the kitchen for a drink is knackering I'd get a thermos flask if that didn't involve bending down. I don't even have the energy to browse Amazon or the RHS website for ideas!

Its a friends wedding on Saturday. Partner is the best man I'm scared silly in case he catches it. It would be an annoyance if I were to miss part of the wedding celebrations but the start of a full bridezilla tantrum if he's not there all of the time!

Wasps - such useful creatures

Morning all. I've succumbed to what actually may be real flu! Running a temperature that is leaving my t shirt sweaty wet yet I'm freezing, aching, dizzy, keeping the Andrex puppy in business with all the snot I'm producing. So long as I lay here and try not to move too much I can almost still breath.

I honestly think if you put a £50 note on the floor in front of me I'd not be able to pick it up. 

Supplementing lemsip with honey and apple cider in hot water. Do anyone know of any magical cures? :/

Panda - the talking wasn't helping but work has been full of manflu and it was only a matter of time before I caught it unfortunately. Cider has appeared so hopefully it'll help!

Evening all. Survived work but voice is now wrecked & I have succumbed to a blanket on the sofa. I brought emergency rations of cider on my way home to sterilise my throat tonight (apples are goid for you after all!) - I thought to myself, what would Dove do?! ; (

Morning all. Hope you all strike lucky in regards to the garden this morning. Haven't found any damage but have borderline flu so must confess didn't really look hard as I staggered to the greenhouse.

Stacey - your bull horn chillies; do they turn red when they ripen?
