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?

Sweet dreams OL, I hope you have a restful evening!

Evening all. Made the mistake of opening a few non gardening threads. It's never all peace and plain sailing here!


Weather is really picking up here, I think it'll be an evening hiding under a blanket hoping trees don't come down!

Morning all! A day off! Shock! Everything in the garden is going full pelt - we're reaching tomato overdose! So yummy though...
