Greetings All. Its good to see some of us are up and about. Ive been laid low by a horrible cold since friday. Dont know when i last felt so rotten - and im never sick for more than 24 hours. I do hope it clears up soon. Christmas went well though and Santa did a good job. For the first time, we went to the candle-lit carol service in the C of I church on Chrismas Eve and it was lovely.

Hope you are feeling better soon GG.

I'm just going to put the finishing touches to next year's garden plans and that's me for the day! I'm worn out doing nothing. Laughing

Thanks for the thoughts, Sue and Margo. I feel human again, today, thanks be. It's a rotten dose. I'm still taking the vit C and echinacea, though, for another couple of days. I've a bit of a cough and a stuffy nose, that's all. Went for a lovely dog-walk at Rathmullan today and found a few good sticks for throwing into the sea.it was great to get out in the fresh air.

Did the sticks come back? Smile Smile

I'm normally never ill but something has attacked me and I haven't eaten a single thing for three days. Strangely, I don't feel hungry, just illish. Weird.

Sorry to hear that you're suffering folks. We are surrounded by ill health at the moment, so I reckon it's just a matter of time before I get something!

But I intend to go down fighting. Vit C, raw honey and apple cider vinegar every morning - so far so good.

Hope you are all feeling a lot better soon and have a very Happy New Year and a prosperous and healthy 2017. Very Happy

In 2017 may your gardens be full of flowers and vegetables, just enough water to remove their thirst, Sunny days to lift your spirits and a shady spot to enjoy your labors. Happy new year.
