Flu, Halloween and school holidays

It’s been over a week since I last blogged – NO INTERNET!! The damn router has died – AGAIN!

And to make things worse, I have come down with the flu too. Which wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t school holidays and I was trying to keep up with my 7 year old. He forgets that I’m an old man (it’s all relative) and don’t have the energy to keep up with his antics.

We spent today shopping for Halloween get-up. First we had to decide what we (he) wanted to be: A vampire. Then we had to put the outfit together. This was hard work. “But that isn’t scary” or “That’s not a real vampire mask.” We finally managed to sort it all out, but if he thinks that I’m going trick or treating with him this weekend… (pics to follow next week)

So, it’s Halloween at work too. The pub looks like the inside of a pumpkin – orange! The staff are all keen to get their outfits and make-up on (and so am I – photo to follow), the cocktail list is ready and the weekend’s entertainment is sorted! Good, scary fun to follow!

Chat soon (well as soon as possible)

PS: I haven’t touched a drop of alcohol in almost 5 weeks. Probably the reason I have the flu!

    My father believes you can cure most ailments with a glass of warm brandy and fresh lemon juice. Try it.
    If it doesn’t cure you, you will be drunk enough at the end of it to think you are.

    I had some cool ‘flu drugs recently. They don’t actually make you feel any better, but you’re so zonked out, you don’t care.
