Burnin' Up

Sweeney's rattly cough never quite went away, and now I find his chest infection is back, and he's got a little ear and throat infection, too. Poor little guy. He mentioned a sore throat two days ago, and I put it down to a spot of hayfever, because I've got a sore throat and I reckoned to myself that it's hayfever.
Of course, it's not hayfever. We've both got our chest infections again, but not nearly so brain-wrenchingly bad as previously. I had a glass of wine after the funeral on Thursday, and woke up the next day with throbbing in the hangover portion of my head. It went on all day, then through the weekend, and on to today.
Of course, it wasn't a hangover.
So, we're all loaded up with medicine and it's going to be okay. Sweeney's got a bit of a temp, and I may have to hook him up and run the lights off his flaming core.
In other news, it looks like the run of perfect weather may be over. Which isn't so bad, because it makes the rattly coughs feel a bit more appropriate, seeing as it's windy and rainy and kind of wintery and all.
In other, other news, I'm knitting up a storm, getting my shizz together for the Christmas ornament swap. More on that later ...

I've been sick, too. Now I have a lingering, annoying cough. We can't spread germs through blogs, can we? Hope you both feel better soon!

I see you're reading Right Ho Jeeves by PGW. It's really good, but the best PGW book I think is The Code Of The Woosters. Also, try the Mr Mulliner short stories which are available in an omnibus. PGW writes the best quality English I've ever read. I think he's even better than Jane Austin and Dickens.

I'm feeling better how about you guys? I've been laughing about running the lights off of Sweeney's "flaming core" ever since I read it! See, I'm laughing out loud right now.
