Laid up

Wot no Christmas picture? No seasonal greeting to the loyal throng of readers? Well, no. Because I've had flu, and frankly, communicating with the blogosphere was pretty low on my list of priorities. (Top of the list came activities such as coughing, moaning, and lying on the sofa). In fact it was only yesterday that I first turned the computer on after more than a week - which must be a record - I half expected it to have seized up. Bit like me. I'll not go into details, as there's nothing more boring than other people's illnesses (yet they feel so fascinating and unique to the victim).

Given that there is still little sign of a thaw, it doesn't look as if I'll have to break off from recuperating any time soon to move the boat. So I'm off back to the sofa.


  1. Oh, sorry to hear you're not well, I hope you feel better soon. P.S Do pass on my mum's thanks to Jim for the card!x

  2. I'm so sorry to hear you've got the lurgy: rotten luck. If it's any cosolation (why should it be?) there are loads of people down with it.
    Only just re-organized my, erm, home page, and started receiving your blog again. Are you coming on the 2nd?

  3. Hello Dr Duct! Good to see you again. Hopefully, if sufficiently recovered. Jim has it now.

  4. poor all of you to be stricken with a truly gruesome lurgii,would this be a good time to re visit the Goon Show and listen to the
    lurgii episode.
    Get well soon,best wishes from madcat and Halsall

  5. Sarah. I hope you are feeling a little better now that a thaw has set in.
    There is nothing worse than feeling unwell especially over Christmas.
    I will take this opportunity to wish you a Jim a wonderful 2011 and Keith and I hope to see you out on the water xx.
