The Bug bites.


By waddy


I’ve just had a lovely time reading some your Blogs and looking back so many garden pictures.
At the moment, I’m laid up with a rather nasty bug, which has well and truly bitten me.
I’m suffering aches and pains. a horrid sore throat and swollen glands. To be honest, even if I went out into the garden, I haven’t the energy to do anything.
So thanks everyone for helping to cheer me up. :)

Poor you Waddy. Best not to try going outside anyway - armchair gardening only for a little while please! Hope you feel better soon.

13 Jan, 2014


Sorry to hear that Waddy, hope you are feeling better soon...

Oh dear Waddy! Sorry you are feeling so unwell. Hope feel better soon...whiskey helps with the sore throat I find! :)

I too have suffered and know now I am like you, vunerable to viral infections. Best to keep away from people Waddy, and always wipe around your mouth, nose, and ears before you go into shops for the essentials, on buses, or planes with Boots antiseptic wipes.

Years ago the medics used to say we caught infections only by personal contact. Now we know they were wrong.

Get well soon Waddy, it can take its time at this time of the year. Hope you feel better soon.

14 Jan, 2014


Thanks again everyone. I'm doing my best to be positive, but it's not always easy, especially when you're married to a man who throws germs off like a discarded jumper. :(
Ah, well, it's our turn to look after our little ray of sunshine tomorrow. No doubt that will cheer me up, even if I will be shattered afterwards!

14 Jan, 2014


wishing you a speedy recovery from me too Waddy.

14 Jan, 2014


Hope you are better soon, Waddy. Roll on spring! Here we have everlasting rain, but snowdrops are blooming.

Rub that man all over with Antiseptic Wipes. Cant do any harm.

16 Jan, 2014


My goodness Diane, which man would that be??

Thanks everyone, your kind wishes are really appreciated.

Finally gave in yesterday and went to see the Doctor. Turns out it's not a Virus after all, but a nasty infection of my throat and glands. Probably courtesy of my little granddaughter, bless her. Ah well, she's worth it. Now on a massive dose of Antibiotics, so I should be fighting fit really soon, fingers crossed!

hope the antibiotics sort you out soon. my Oh has 2 weeks off work and has been struck down by similar illness ..just hope he keeps it to himself...
