New Beginnings and an Old Nemesis

My lovely wife starts a new job today. I can't tell you where she's working, except to say that the wage will come in handy as Every Little Helps!

Suffering as she does from anxiety, this morning was naturally frought with panic and stress. Add into the equation the fact that her taxi didn't turn up and you can imagine the air was as blue as it can get in front of a five year old child!! (Where's the bloomin' taxi? These bleedin' taxi drivers must turn up late on purpose the nasty devils!! - that sort of thing.)

So for a 9am start at a location seven miles away, through rush hour traffic, the taxi tuns up at 8:49!! Obviously my wife's reaction scared the living hell out of the driver and he managed to get her there for 8:58 - I'm very impressed! (With my Wife!)

As for me - well I've had a bad chest and sinus infection for the past three weeks - two courses of antibiotics seem to have finally done the trick BUT having murdered all of the infectious bacteria they have also, in the process, killed off all of the good bacteria lining my gut - this at a time when my specialist has decided to get me off steroids reducing the dose to just 5mg a day - so my old friend Mr Crohn's has decided to step up a gear and lay me low again.

More time off work - just what I (and they) need. Oh the joys of Crohn's!!

Hi, Gary. Been a bit negligent for checking blogs, but thank you for your visits. I absolutely loved the verse from yesterday on your blog.

To answer your question about the PUPU Lingerie, I have no idea where the name came from, but I'm going to Google and see if it's there!

I am sure Emily will make you a lovely "Get Well Soon Daddy" card and a "Well done Mummy" card for lesley! LOL!

Take care.

Sorry to hear you've been suffering with the usual coughs and colds. It doesn't seem to have escaped many people. Hope everyone has it before Christmas then we can all enjoy a lovely festive season without having to live on antibiotics!

Excellent news for your lovely wife. A new job, perhaps a new beginning for you all.

Life can be h... . For the lacking bacteria - all I can recommend is yoghurt and tat kind of thing. It worked for me in a comparable situation.

PS Thanks for the comment!
