Eau dear ....
Having just recently had the roof of Jakartass Towers patched and tarred, I'm pleased to report that we haven't found any new leaks. Yet.
Yesterday, our sometime maid sheltered with us, again, as her place was flooded out and she couldn't do anything about it as we spent our Sunday looking out at a very grey afternoon. It teemed down enough to keep everybody indoors.
Still, I do like quiet Sundays, even if it means that I didn't dare log on to the internet or watch satellite TV due to the circling thunderstorm.
What I didn't like were my liquid insides, a condition that's now lasted over a week. I'm sure you don't want the graphic details, but is it possible to overdose on Imodium
Rest assured that I've had a very ascetic week, one with few flavours but lots of replenishing liquids.
Mind you, along with esteemed London blogger Diamond Geezer
, I'm not a great fan of of those fizzy, sticky, coloured and 'flavorized' concoctions that masquerade
themselves as being healthy because they provide the vital fluids our bodies need with some also providing contributions to the various vitamins and minerals we need every day.
Just like eau minerale
and multivitamin tablets in fact.
Ignoring the fact that Our Kid was off school last week with chicken pox, the sister-in-law had a racking cough and 'Er Indoors felt poorly ~ a veritable cottage hospital, I do wonder if I haven't been displaying enhanced and delayed cigarette withdrawal symptoms
It's been three weeks since and luckily, or by sheer willpower, my craving moments have been few. One suggestion for dealing with them is to say "When I get a strong craving I am going to occupy myself for 5 minutes by manicuring my nails
I spend five minutes biting mine.
