Hey, peopleÖjust a quick upload before I hit the sack.

Iíve been taking Vit C at intervals today Ďcos whatever bug gave my mum her bronchitis is trying to get me, methinks. Bah. Started in my head yesterday and now itís in my lungs. Iím still feeling ok, just scratchy in my lungs and a bit of a phlegmy cough. Nothing to get annoyed about yet.

Actually, our neighbour Penny two houses down has got it bad. My mum said she sounds even worse than my mum. And thatís saying something. ĎCos at the height of this thing, my mumís cough sounded like two dogs growling and fighting in her chest. This stupid bug better not get the better of me. Iíll be super p*ssed if it does.

On a lighter and non-bug related note, hereís a Buddleia in bloom on the patio from November. Sooo nice when itís in bloom Ďcos it smells up the place something lovely. When thereís a breeze, the scent comes straight into the living room Smile

A gorgeous buddleia, Andrew, love the way you have presented it peeping out of the rhs. Take care, do hope your mum hasn't passed on her bug to you, that wouldn't be very thoughtful of her at all Wink Carol

Very pretty and beautifully composed.

Sounds like you are suffering from Manflu Andrew, a well known XY chromosome borne variation on terminal Hypochondria. Keep taking the tablets and going for the sympathy vote and with luck it will last for so long that you will have all of EPZ gushing!

Great Buddleia image, Andrew. you'll surely attract the butterflies with that on your patio.
Lots of lemsips and sweat it out in bed - it's the only way to get rid of bad 'flu.
