  1. They won’t usually give them for flu unless you’ve already been measured for your coffin. the chesty crap came afterwards and they tell you to let it go by itself but if it doesn’t go pretty sharpish they’ll have to give me something
  2. I couldn’t get an appointment until the following week so other than the two minutes the receptionist spent convincing me to stop being a drain on the NHS and just grow a pair it’s ended up being plenty of rest and strong tablets from over the counter. 3 day’s is the longest time i’ve been off work for 20 years though so whatever it was, it’s a nasty little sod.
  3. Yeah you couldn’t make it up. i spent the best part of the warmest days in bed with flue and couldn’t decide whether to shiver or pour with sweat. now the damp weather has done its best to make a nasty chest infection even worse. at least it was an excuse to stop in today.
  4. Winds getting up here but chicken and veg always has that effect on me.
  5. I was there with work that day and expected an absolute stuffing but staggered away from OT with a smile wider than the Ship Canal. doubt that Heaton will ever have a finer day as Burnley keeper but with him in goal we are so much better as a unit and take games to sides who on paper, are so much better than us. Anyway good luck for today and the remainder of the season and we’ll concentrate on getting the two or three wins needed to see us sat at the posh table again next season.
  6. Crew you’re not letting that one drop are you Since our mauling against Everton we’ve showed up against everyone we’ve played whether home or away and that’s why we’re on the longest unbeaten run of anyone in the Prem other than yourselves. what it’s worth, I hope yours carries on tomorrow and before the seasons over maybe we can show up against Citeh, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.
  7. After a decent weekend today has felt pretty damn cold and raw again. not quite a shock to the system but it’s a good reminder that we’re still a long way from spring yet.
  8. Aye it’s been a decent few days and i’ll gladly take another couple of weeks like this before the proper heat arrives in March for those of us old enough to remember, this time 40 years ago couldn’t have been anymore different with probably the coldest snowiest February i’ve ever seen.
  9. That’s pretty warm although up here it it’ll no doubt be cloudy with torrential drizzle and not get above 97c.
  10. I was that busy watching your lot rip Chelski a new one I didn’t even realise rain for on its way or that it could be sleety. that said though it felt pretty cold out walking this afternoon
  11. Dare I say, at least it will be mild or did you overdo the spices
  12. Hopefully we’ll be doing the same at teatime for the football.
  13. It looks like there is plenty of firewood blocking roads around here this morning for anyone with a chainsaw and a truck. I just hope that my fence panels aren’t adding to it.
  14. Yeah I noticed the noise of the drizzle on the conservatory roof, thought it sounded like the torrential type
  15. My last fiver would go on rain, even up here although we live in hope and surely a dozen downgrades must equal 1 upgrade.
  16. Not been outside since I came home from the football but it’s been cold all day and most of our snow cover has remained. just a shame it’s on its way tomorrow.
  17. Beautiful winters morning here, nothing much else to say.
  18. So long as it’s a decent brand, non of this buy one get ten free stuff oh and I need some onions
  19. Yeah just been out in the car and it’s snowing here.
  20. Still some pretty beefy showers crossing Yorkshire from the North Sea but only time will tell if they have enough left in them to get over to our side. not a bad effort earlier this morning though and even though the streamer moved away from here soon after light it did give another inch or so top up along with the usual early morning chaos on the local roads.
  21. BBC forecast showed snow showers coming in from the North Sea throughout the day so plenty of opportunity for parts of the region to see something.
  22. Couldn’t resist looking at the radar and that’s a decent streamer coming across the Pennines. its pretty narrow though and although i’m getting lucky at the moment, a movement of only 10 miles either way would take me out of the firing line. still it’s the third day with snow falling this week and after the dire first half of the winter when I couldn’t see us getting anything at all, it hasn’t turned out that bad.
