Well note

Sorry for the lack of blogs but we've both had the lurgy.

John got it first and spent the best part of four days in bed. He then very kindly passed it onto me – payback time as I gave him the lurgy in November….

He had to make a rare trip to the doctors as his chest wasn’t too good and whenever he moved the room spun so much that he was losing his balance and throwing up !!!!

John was diagnosed with a chest infection and viral labyrinthitis (inner ear infection). The doctor gave some tablets and a sick note for two weeks, but said if he felt well enough he could go back to work before the two weeks was up.

A week into his sick note John felt well enough to go back to work so advised his boss that he would be in the following day. He got an apologetic email from his boss saying unless he got a note from his GP stating he was fit to work, he isn’t allowed to return until his sick note is up. 

His sick note runs out on Wednesday, however he can’t get an appointment to see a doctor, any doctor, until Thursday.

So, although John wants to return to work and his boss wants him to return to work, he can’t until Thursday. Madness !!!!!

Good bye Christmas, hello Easter

On Thursday we went to Morrisons for our usual weekly shop and one of the first things you come to when you enter the store is their promotions bakery display.

Running up to the festive season they were promoting all things Christmas - mince pies, stollen, etc. On Thursday the entire display was filled with just one kind of item - hot cross buns !!!!!

Further down the store in their Seasonal aisle it was good bye Christmas selection boxes and hello Easter eggs.

Before we know it, it'll be so long 'In my Easter Bonnet' and hello 'White Christmas'.

Hot cross bun anyone....
