Curses! I thought I had escaped the winter bugs.


I thought seriously of visiting the doctor today, for when I woke up this morning I discovered that my neck glands felt like they had grown to become the size of golf balls, my throat feels like it is on fire and my nose is dripping like a tap with a broken washer.

But then I remembered that it would cost me $60 for the privilege of hearing that I've got a viral infection so the best thing I can do is rest and keep up the fluids. Bugger that for a bunch of bananas!

So, instead, I have decided to be my own doctor today. I'm prescribing a day on the couch, with plenty of knitting, endless cups of tea and fizzy water, and some French knitting translation if I feel up to it. The thought of a peaceful day knitting is making me feel better already!


  1. I'm jealous! I'd rather like to catch a bug so I can justifiably sit on the couch and crochet!

    Feel better soon :)

  2. :( Feel better soon my friend. xxx

  3. Oh that's so not good. Hope you're feeling better soon.

  4. Get well soon! :(

  5. next time i'm ill i am coming to see you for my diagnosis/prescription! (though the trip to melbourne might be a bit more than $60, phooey.)

    rest up, my dear. hope you mend right quick (or as soon as you've had a lovely stretch of knitting).

  6. It's going around - hope you feel better soon.
    Put in a pot 1 lemon cut up in quarters, 2 cloves garlic, 2 chunks of ginger, 1 star anise, 1 cinnamon stick, 1 large tabs. honey - boil until syrupy - strain in a cup & reheat in m/wave with another tsp honey - drink!! It worked for me.
