What's worse than a hangover?

A hangover with a cold.

After not having had a bad cold for years I've been struck down with a couple of stinkers in quick succession recently. After guzzling whatever beer I could get my hands on (guinness, abbot and red stripe) when seeing the mighty Hawkwind I felt so rough the next day that death would have been a merciful release. It was a relief when my nose started dripping as at least I knew I was proper ill and not just a total lightweight.

I recovered from that cold in time for the Christmas celebrations but was soon struck down with another one, which meant I ended up staying in on New Year's eve.

I'll still not feeling quite right but I'll be going for a stroll soon to stretch my legs, and if I happen to find myself walking past a hostelry I may pop in for a pint or two of therapy.


  1. Maybe a get well soon card is in order?

  2. Hope you're feeling better soon. All the best for 2011.

  3. I feel your pain, I was struck with 3 colds in 2 months. As much lemsip as I could drink and a little whisky before bed helped a lot. Someone also suggested eating whole cloves of garlic?

  4. Thanks all, the rum and hot chocolate that the lovely Lisa made me seems to have worked best.
