Under House Arrest

I am currently unwell.
I have a chest and nasal infection and feel thoroughly miserable. I've been coughing my lungs out for the last two days and my nose is running like a leaky tap, it just won't stop.
I decided yesterday that I wouldn't be going in to work today, I really don't feel up to it and don't fancy passing on my misery to my colleagues, therefore I've had the pleasure of daytime television keeping me company today.

This is not a good thing.

I'm not really sure who daytime tv is aimed at, women probably. It's universally terrible, no matter what channel you happen to be on. Be it Phillip and Fern on 'This Morning' or the living hell that is 'The Paul O'Grady Show', it's all complete shite.
Thankfully, Virgin Media and Sky TV are good friends again so Sky News has saved the day.

Nothing like universal doom and gloom to make you feel better.

Were you off today?

Get well soon

Daytime TV?
I learned all I know about Family Law thanks to Judge Judy

Take it from me, Loose Women can only be enjoyed when you are feeling ill. Or possibly dead.

Misssy M said...

Jimmy has stolen my idea- I was just about to recommend Judge Judy. Is hilarious.

Get well soon Inchy. Hot toddies all the way.

Hope you feel better soon... but keep away from me till you do.

Puts me in mind of being off school in the late '70s/early '80s...

Original Lucozade (glass bottle, urine-coloured cellophane wrapping), Picturebox, Stop, Look and Listen, How We Used To Live, Rainbow, ITN News At One with Leonard Parkin, Crown Court, Afternoon Plus... all comes flooding back.

Hope you're starting to feel a bit more chipper.

Hope you're better now.

When you say aimed at women, I imagine it's in the manner of a gun, Or a Deathray. Mmmm, Deathrays.

Thank you one and all for your kind words, they have helped to give me the strength to battle back from death's door to some semblance of health this morning. Still got the lovely Kermit-coloured phlegm though.

Without you and the boys from Orange County Choppers, I dunno what I would have done over the last two days.
I now think I could actually build a motorbike myself.
