The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

I Don’t Know How You Did It …

… but ever since I got to the UK, I’ve been in quarantine with a bad dose of swine flu.

No, not man flu … or even man swine flu … but the real pig sponsored disease thing.

Seriously, all you had to do was tell me you didn’t want me to write my blog anymore – you didn’t have to go to such extremes, I’d of listened. Honest.

Anyway, you’ll be happy to know your evil wishes have come true as they’ll be no more blogging from me for at least another 10 days – not just because I feel like death, but because the only internet access I have is my crackberry and to be quite honest, the roaming charges writing this post will have probably crippled me.

So with grudging respect, I salute you – but please can you stop wishing me ill, it really isn’t very nice and you have my Mother worried sick.

On the bright side [for me, that is] I’ve caught up on 39 years of sleep, lost weight because lifting a fork is hard work and saved money by not being able to buy 10,000 DVD’s so I guess all in all, it’s been quite good for both of us.

For a cynical bugger, I may have to admit that inside every cloud there is a silver lining … but don’t hold me to that, this is a man with a 39.4 temperature talking!

Is this your way of extending your holiday? Smart move, not as clever as your mate who got a year off saying he was going to help the tsunami victims but good all the same.
You OK? Always knew ACDC were the devils music. Take care Rob, will get updates from K.

Whoa, don’t blame us Rob, the rules of Sherlock Holmes state the person who fled the scene is the person who did the crime. Where is Andy by the way. 🙂

Hope you’re improving Rob.

Hello lovelies … there’s one thing to be said for Swine Flu, you get to go straight to the front of queues when you start coughing.

Hope all is well – back soon – you poor, poor buggers.

Isn’t that what your first wife wrote on her ‘reasons for divorce’ form Andy?
