    PMSL at the Iowa tweet … and can definitely relate to pseudoephedrine inspired productivity. I can see why that stuff is barely legal!

    Meanwhile I am off to Bali tomorrow and after fighting and thinking I had beaten sinusitis about five times over in the last month, I have now fully succumbed. Thank god for doctors who know you well and will fit you in when there are no free appointments *sob*

      Kelly: Have the most incredible time in Bali! I think it’s possibly a better choice than Iowa.

    Oh Val … it’s two weeks since I was struck down and I’m still not 100%. Feel your pain. It’s a shocker!

      Nikki: I blame this post from your blog for the delirium about bloggers writing about storage accessories.

    I blame my ‘flu’ on a survey! Yes, 3 weeks ago I agreed to take part in a survey re the flu needle. They wanted to track individuals who hadn’t and who have had the ‘flu’ shots. Firsts two weeks just fine, people around me who have had the shot were dropping like flies. I kept saying I ‘never get sick’ and I hadn ‘t had the flu shot. Wamo the next survey email arrives and I have been struck down with the worst cold since I can remember! I’m sure there was something attached in the email that was released so that now I can fill in the question that say
    1. ‘cough’ tick yes,
    2. ‘temperature’ tick yes,
    3. ‘Dying in bed at can’t go to work’ tick yes!
    Today will be the first day back after lying in bed for the last 4 day! Hope their happy as now I am just one of those statistics!
