The virus that is doing the rounds is an adenovirus so the flu jab will have no effect. lots of sucky sweets /expectorants/ inhalations, keep warm and plenty of liquids.
If you start wheezing with it, doc can give stuff for bronchitis .
My mum had it before xmas, my sister went bonkers with dettol wipes before 18 of us assembled for boxing day and it seems to have done the trick. Mum sounded like she was tuning bagpipes.
No snowdrops here yet. Ashwood had some prize examples in the alpine house. Anything up to £25 a throw for a small pot with one or two bulbs in. I settle for thousands of the common stuff.
The woodpecker flashed his red bum at me today. I currently have half coconuts stuffed with fat instead of the fat blocks. He struggled to grip, so I may go back to the blocks.
I seem to have acquired half a stone in weight. I bought a couple of crown prince squashes in Lidl, so veg soup is going to be on the menu soon. A bit of ginger root zizzes it up a bit. Only a small amount needed. smaller than a thumb end.
Have a good evening folks.
