Thought I'd help out given I'm in the office and the inbox wasn't as populated as I expected.

Got to go to an induction I may have been missing for the last 5 months. Boss clocked I hadn't been on the HR system when authorising a holiday and suggested I attend the one today. A day wasted but under orders.

Still full of cold. Still haven;t gone and sorted my winter hack. Still a good person

    My pants are the only item of clothing that aren't currently drying on the radiators at work after my morning commute. 6 hours of fire and manual handling training to look forward to now. I hope the girls at work don't object to my pants.

    After a second night of nothing alcoholic I managed to get out of bed, as planned at 6am to start a 60+km ride...

    After 11km I badly needed a dump so headed in the direction of a toilet (home) and after 16.5km decided that I needed a new tyre so trashed my front one in a pot hole and needed a rescue from MrsHD.

    Not a great start but hey-ho.

    What an unpleasant thought, Seano sat there in his y-fronts typing that.

    Not too busy today but I need to pop to the bank in the village in a bit to get statements for the mortgage adviser we're seeing tomorrow.

    I've got a gym induction later today and am oddly nervous about it - it's been over ten years since I set foot in a gym - and that was at a University gym where, during the induction, both me and the instructor reeked of the previous nights drink.

    I've got a bottle of good gin at home that's going to get a dent in it again when I het home. That's probably all I need to send me off to sleep after waking up at 4am with a cough then having to be in the office for 7.30. Still, not long to go till the weekend...

    That manual handling course is a joke.

    Picked up 38 immaculate IBC's free of charge from the place where they make the 'Seriously Strong Cheddar' today. Might even have a buyer by tomorrow - Kerching. Dunno if the security guard has been removed from the wheelie bin yet.

    This one: http://d1londongin.com/

    I know gin is all 40% alcohol but this one feels like it packs a real punch and it tastes spot on with a dose of tonic. Quite a cool bottle as well.

    It doesn't work. I tried to do the same thing this week on the basis that riding increases my body temp which is what your body does to kill bugs. Still got a frikkin hacking cough. Will give it one more go tomorrow, though TBH I think the gin may do a better job on my throat :)

    Haven't got any cointreau; might try some Laphroaig as it's not too dissimilar to TCP.

    If the bug is anything like the one I had Stevo you'll be coughing for a month. To say I was thoroughly hacked off with it could be an understatement.

    If it survives this ****ing Laphroaig it probably will last another month! 'Tis not the usual weedy London lergy which I am usually shot of in 24-48 hours, as I must have immunity to pretty much every disease capable of being spread by snotty commuters/office workers by now.

    That it does Pina, also has a real burning feeling after a while, stupid kids drinking game when raiding the parents booze cabinet.

    Laphroaig may smell like anti septic but it isn't. I may just open the Macallan to kill mine off. Have taken to looking like a ponce in work by wearing a scarf indoors. Not sure if that advice was good or just to make me look like an idiot but censored being ill

    Whatever this lurgy is, it is sticky, green, comes out in lumps like chicken pellets and makes your heady dizzy. So far, there hasn't been any government health warnings.
    Might go for a sauna tomorrow.

    Any possible cure welcome.

    Turmeric
    Ginger
    Lemon
    Are all natural decongestants that will help to break up sticky green lurgy.
