  • Have that herd made it all the way to you so soon. They only left our place last month. They had been grazing here spreading their germs and heavy footprints for 5 weeks. Course after course of tablets but they didn't move on. Then I posted here and suddenly I recovered and the hefferflumps cleared off. Took a while for my ribs to feel better though. Rib

  • Now that made me laugh. So it's all your fault you sent them over. Sorry they stayed so long with you and here's me moaning after a week.

  • Try not to get TOO takes me at least 3 weeks to get over my infections, so take a big breath (Oh dear, that's a ridiculous thing to say - sorry :x and relax....give the tablets time to work. You will feel a lot better in a couple of weeks (not that I am a doctor or anything, but I get infections on a bloomin' regular basis so I know what I am talking about) ....usually :) All the best :)

  • Good evening! A herd of elephants - wow must be awa full. I don't suppose this will cheer you up but there are a lot of people with coughs and colds and flu this year. It seems horrendous - there was only 8 kids in my daughters history class today - usually 25! Perhaps it is all the mild weather we had earlier.

    Manuka honey or Scottish honey can be good for coughs. Wishing you the speediest recovery, with lots of love TAD xxxx
