It is achoo! and oh dear, I'm afraid. We went away for the weekend, full of vim and vigour to enjoy some lovely company, do some cooking and walking on the beach.

Humph! Friday was lovely, we went for an Indian meal, which was devine. 'Saturday Kitchen' had a lovely recipe for roast shoulder of lamb - well hogget (the old season lamb.) Which I did for our dinner as my bro works at a charity shop on Saturdays. That was delicious, too.

Then, Sunday morning saw me being, shall be say, ill from my bottom half, with a gastric-type-virus. All day. Until the evening time. When even the retching stopped.

No fun when you're sneezing at the same time!

My lovely Mr T looked after me beyond the call of duty, and my bro brought me offerings of dried toast and (luckily, bottled) water.

So, we returned home today, and I feel a lot better.

Just the achoo's to deal with now.

Oh, nothing worse than the gastric thingy, I'm glad you're feeling better and that you got to see your brother - I've got one of those and he's lovely :-)

My family (28 of us) got something similar after Christmas. Not our idea of a great way to spend the holidays, but it will be remembered a long time, anyway!

Glad you're feeling better.

Oh, it isn't nice when you are ill like that. I hope you are completely recovered now.

I'm sorry Kaz - I laughed! Unfortunately the sneezing image was too much for me. ROFL! Glad you are feeling better now. xxx Diane

papoosue, shirley, penny, campbellgirl and shabby chick - thank you all so much for your thoughts - even the laughing cheered me up!
My cold feels worse today, gah. And I've had to cancel some friends coming for their dinner ... couldn't have them coming down with anything as well, despite being a 'washing hands' fanatic.
I know I shall feel better soon, I Will feel better soon .... x
