It's also rather disappointing, sorry!
I've had the 'flu - nothing special; not man flu or bird flu or West Indian flu (which I am told by West Indians can be particularly bad) just the usual sort of thing but it's probably as valid as any of the other ways suggested by these sort of adverts, plus its free.
I've slept an inordinate amount of time, couldn't be bothered to do anything at all (even think) and haven't eaten anything even though my real man bought some of my favourite chocolate to try and tempt me. As a result I am now thin(ner), knackered and am coughing like a ... thing that coughs a lot.
I hope to be back to blogging normality very soon.
