Sod's Law

Now I have promised myself not to blog again about feeling poorly.
The whole of last week has been a total waste of time because of the soddin flu
However I am happy to report that
My temperature broke around 1 pm in the afternoon and for the first time since last Sunday my headache and eye ache disappeared.
At 6pm, although weak, I found myself hoping things were truly on the mend...
And by 6.20 pm....and you've guessed it.
I started with the shits.
Ho ho ho

This video is Georgia's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest
My friend Nige sent it me, in an effort to cheer me up...
It worked
I kind of like it.....I wonder what shite the Uk will be entering?

  3. Ah Ero - everyone's guilty secret. I'm rather hoping Tenfold Rabbit represent Estonia. Doubt they'd win, but it would be a proper band doing a proper (alt-folk) song.

  5. Fully stocked up with quilted Velvet I hope. I think the other Queen may have the same thing as you...
    I like the song. Denmarks entry is good too. I'm dreading hearing ours in three weeks time.

  6. Ah well...better out than in as the saying goes. Think of how squeaky clean you're going to be inside.

  7. Perhaps you came out in sympathy with The Queen !!
    I have watched The Eurovision Song Contest since a small child ..... a load of awful songs but used to love Terry Wogan and now love Grahan Nortons commentary. I just cannot understand why a country like England, that has produced some of the world's best music throughout history, cannot come up with a decent song.......most talented singers turn it down I guess.
    So pleased that you are feeling better ..... apart from the squits !! Do you fold or scrunch ? XXXX

  8. Oh, maybe you should go ahead and schedule a colonoscopy, since you're emptying everything out. Please keep the bleach out of the bathroom until you're fully healed! Glad to hear your fever and headache are gone. You just may survive this thing yet!

  9. As ever, Alison has good advice. No more bleach on the dunny seat until you're all better! Eurovision is a non-event here in the colonies, which is a Good Thing though I do love Graham Norton.

  12. Sick GK here with me all weekend, of course I pushed the raw milk on her. It helps. I don't like it when they are sick but I do like a reason to stop what I am doing and cuddle them all afternoon. Are you getting cuddled enough John?

    ReplyDelete
  13. So glad you're on the mend John. Same here, today was the first day that I had some energy and no banging head ache. It was great to be able to catch up with some chores. Hope tomorrow is even better for you x

  14. Well, you can join in with me. Since I've been on Amoxicyllin, guess what I've been doing?

    I hope you're feeling better soon!

    Take care,

  19. You really are having a bad, bad time on the health front. Get better soon. Very soon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nodi and Big ears? Just think... there'll be another 40 songs exactly like that one; I can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  21. So you and the other Queen have tummy problems. A coincidence? Hmmm
    Hope you bum is not too raw and you bounce back.

  22. Good to read that you're almost back to being full of beans again, J.G. (Oops, perhaps not the best choice of words, considering!)

    Ah, Eurovision, the pinnacle of my TV-watching year - and I am NOT kidding. I can go right back to remembering Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson with their birdie glove- puppet! (Did you ever see them in minor roles in Sondheim's 'Follies', I wonder?)
    This Georgian entry must be off to a good start including, as it does, the Euro-regulation key-change 2/3 through.
    I don't think that the U.K. entries over the years have, by and large, been all THAT bad. Pity that so many of the Euro-voters don't agree, but that's not my fault! :-)

  23. Feel better soon. What a 'run' of bad luck.

  24. I bet you've lost weight John. Wishing you well, soft loo roll and black tea & dry toast might help x

  25. Goodness what a time you have had. Things can only get better. Our family loves the Eurovision song contest. It's like rubber necking, so bad that you can't help but look!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Georgia's entry is deeply moving and clearly you've found it so too. The choreographer obviously has an obsession with outstretched arms. Lots of soothing vaseline for the ring sting John. Glad your temperature is down. x

  27. Ah, so you are going to live after all! Good, we were starting to worry a bit xxx


    ps please dont clean with harsh chemicals unless you rinse, 'k?

    1. okay, i watched the video -

      what a different key change near the ending - it gave her the ability to really wail it out and as an alto she did marvelous!

      the harmony was pretty flawless too; you couldnt recognize it unless you listened in hard at the chorus...and yes he is as pretty as she is LOL

      all and all, that

      Delete
    2. to FINISH - lol

      all and all, that was pretty darn good- so its just not your illness talking!

  28. You started with the shits? Good heavens you never told us that David Cameron and his Eton chums were round at your place...Speaking of "the shits" we must compare notes some time. Shall I send you some photos of my output? Sometimes reminds me of Jackson Pollock.

  29. Ah hope you feel better, the sun today in London is a bit springy and has got a different glow. So hopefully it will burn away all the flu-y things!

  30. It cut me off! Anyway, Eurovision will def me on my YouTube faves bc it does cheer the mood for sure!

  31. I don't suppose I'll get the Eurovision Song contest here. Terry Wogan (Well, bejeesus, a cynical Oirishman!) was still commentating the last one I ever saw but this song sounds good.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Didn't we once win it with Sandie Shaw singing puppet on a string? Probably before you were born John. Re the shits - you seem to be in good company at least.

    1. U.K. has won it no less than FOUR times. Yes, Ms Shaw (in bare feet 'n all!) sang our first ever win (1967), coming as it did, after a time when we seemed to be runner-up year after year.
      Other winners were:-
      Brotherhood of Man (Save Your Kisses For Me) in 1976 - incidentally, still the biggest selling hit worldwide from ANY country in Eurovision history.
      Bucks Fizz (Making Your Mind Up) in 1981
      Katrina & the Waves (Love Shine a Light) in 1997

      More than high time for another win, methinks.

      Delete
    2. Wrong! We've actually won it FIVE times! Who can forget (much as we might try) Lulu's 'Boom Bang-a-Bang' of 1969 - though that was a slightly hollow victory in that we were one of four countries finishing with max points. This was before the decision to, in the event of a tie, count up the number of countries awarding 12 points, then 10 points (if necessary) and so on, until a single clear winner emerged.

      As you can see, I take the whole Eurovision business VERY seriously. So no cheap jibes please! ;-)

  33. It seems, if you wait long enough, all things must pass. Yes, I could come up with a crap comment but you don't need that. Although, I've heard that diarrhoea runs in the family.

    Thankfully, most folks in North America will not know what the hell you are talking about in regards to the Eurovision Song Contest. They have their um own crap to contend with....

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ahh, crap, John! So sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  35. So, the term 'you don't half talk a load of shit', seems aptly appropriate. Bung up soon (in the nicest possible way).x

  36. Ugh, what a drag. Hope you are on the mend very soon!
