Come on. Admit it. You have eaten more chocolate than is good for you and all the advertisements for diets and health products are making you feel guilty.
I know – it happens every year. Sit and watch tv for an hour or so and you will be bombarded by advertisements for holidays, diets, furniture and digestive relief. Thank goodness for the BBC! (no ads)
I sit and type this with wobbling hands – no, not a hangover (I’m not an Alan Bennett VW) but a sufferer from festive flu – or a virus… or something. Suffice it to say that the Toblerone didn’t get its outing to the party (although I understand that someone else had the same idea – involving a clothes airer and an old sheet!) I promise to dress up though and stick the photo on the site – for all of you who didn’t really believe me.
No, instead of partying I took to my bed and ached.
The party was, I hear, a huge success – in spite of some 20 people being laid low with illness. Roll on a sharp bit of winter weather to kill some of these germs.
Sitting tucked up on the sofa, under a blanket, sipping fruit tea and considering taking out shares in Kleenex, whilst hearing from one’s friend just how good the party was, was a depressing experience. I’m really really pleased that the party was such fun. My friend put so much effort into it. It was just the sort of party that one speaks of for years. Come to think of it, I haven’t been to such a party for years. I am truly sorry that I could not be there and I’M FED UP WITH FEELING ILL!
Good. I feel better for that. Thank you for listening.
Anti-biotics are fantastic. Without them I know I would be heading towards a Dickensian decline. But they do depress one. So, on with some home-spun spirit-lifting effort. I’ll make a sustaining bowl of soup and tuck up with a book,,,,
and a bar of chocolate 🙂
