Have succumbed to man flu and am on the sofa for the rest of the day <sniff> shivering and feeling like death. I know <snort> alecstilleyedie was in a similar position of unhealth. Anyone <cough> else?

Please post tea and sympathy below.

Tea and sympathy...hope you feel better soon. Get yourself a cup of hot lemon drink, with a small tot of brandy in (if that's to your taste!), make the house warm, get out your fave vid or dvd and R-E-L-A-X!

Thanks guys, feeling better already! I have just had one of these:

http://www.scottishrecipes.co.uk/hottoddy.htm
Adult's Hot Toddy Recipe

I love this one - especially with a fine malt - you don't need to be poorly to enjoy it!

Ingredients For An Adult Hot Toddy Drink

A wee dram of whisky
1 teaspoon honey
Boiled water
1 slice fresh lemon/lemon squash
1 pinch ground nutmeg (optional)
1 cinnamon stick (optional)

Cooking Directions:

1. Put the honey into a mug and disolve in a wee bit of boiled water.
2. Add the whisky depending on your taste. 1 -2 tablespoons is recommended.
3. Top up with more boiled water. Add the cinnamon stick if used. Leave to stand for about 5 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick
4. Add the fresh lemon/lemon squash, stir well, then sprinkle with a pinch of ground nutmeg if used then serve.
I also stuck a couple of cloves in, seemed to work well.

I have been - coughing up what resembles gobs of (used :thumbsup: ) swarfega - but I think I'm over the worst of it. Can't suggest any 'remedies' except Lem-sip and Fisherman's friends - but I take regular echinacea during the winter months as a sort of prophylactic. I think it works some.
 
I lost out earlier on today to goo_mason and I am damned if I will let that happen again, so........

Manflu? Pah! After riding on Tuesday, I might be carrying Horse flu, cost the stable's had an outbreak! Beat that!

(OK, not carrying, but my friend who has her own horse had to make sure she changed completely before seeing to it, in case she had carried the germs on her boots or jodhpurs)

mmm, that toddy sounds nice. I could do with one of those. Hope it works wonders for you Dom.

Tis the season to be coughing and sneezing.

I felt :biggrin: this morning but didn't have a high temperature so I decided to get out on the bike on the basis that it will either kill or cure. Got a good ride in although the nose was dripping and the legs were heavy at times. It will be interesting to see how I feel this evening!!

Get well soon to all those who are already off the bike.

You'll never prevent a pregnancy that way! :biggrin::biggrin:
Hot toddies...that's where it's at... (not for pregnancies, that's gin and hot baths, or something)

I'm as sick as a dog but it's all self induced after the office party. Luckily there's a sofa at work so I've been kipping on that. I get the most awful hangovers, damn me and damn my persuasive co-workers!

I've had a temperature and a related chest infection since Monday. Temperature broke last night. Couldn't avoid going to work as it is our busiest time, so dragged myself in and infected everyone else for Xmas.:biggrin:
