Here I am back at work - a miraculous weekend recovery which I credit to copious ingestion of Orange Juice not from concentrate and many, many hours of sleep (induced by Nyquil).

Right, so am sure I left you hanging with anticipation as to what the weekend held for this SickShannon. Without further adieu I bring you teh weekend review (not the unintentional rhyming of the that sentence!)

Friday Evening: Shannon wisely chooses to stay in and recuperate from her cold while Keri heads out on Work Do and Jen has haggis with lacrosse team. She is kept compnay by double bill of Simpsons and a not-so-good movie she rented (Two Brothers - cute, but very slow moving and kind of sad for a supposed family movie)

Saturday Afternoon - Following on 10-hour sleep Shannon heads to town to pay massive Council Tax Bill for flar (massive = over $1500). Ouch. She finds herself in Freebie heaven and ends up with, amongst other things, a free day gym pass, a bottle of ketchup, jar of mayonaise, laundry detergent and a frisbee.

Saturday Evening: Shannon is feeling much better so heads out with Canadian crew to do Grass Market pub crawl - very enjoyable, but a late night is not had - in fact we leaev so early that the very nice bouncer at Drop Kick Murhpy's comments . . .I guess we are regs now!


Sunday Afternoon - Gorgeous sunny day and 10 Celsius, so Jen & I head out for a mammoth walk/hill climb which lasts 3 hours. After we walk & climb, we decide to hop on a random us and see where it takes us. It takes us to a shopping centre. Surprise, Surprise. After resisting temptation to buy CDs galore, we head off to do Sunday Evening thing

Sunday Evening - Dinner at Anne's. Yum!!! Mushroom soup, pad thai and scones w/clotted cream. Mmmmmmmmm!!!

So, not the most eventful weekend, but thoroughly enjoyable for a recovering sickie. I

plan to dedicate this week to seeing all the movies I have missed over the last month including: The Aviator, Ray, GARDEN STATE, Million Dollar Baby, Team America (maybe?) & Closer. Funny - Ocean's 12 is not even out here yet!

Many of our modern drugs have harsh side-affects and cost the “earth”, so the next time you come down with a cold or the flu or stress room, why not try a gentle alternative that costs next to nothing?

Instead of immediately forking over large amounts of money for over-the-counter drugs, go to the kitchen cupboard and see what you can find to relieve your symptoms including stress room.

Here are some helpful hints for stress room …

A simple hot compress applied to the face is very soothing to those throbbing aches and pains of a blocked sinus, while a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief can provide welcome relief for similar conditions. While supplements of vitamin C, D and zinc will shorten the lifespan of a common cold, a hot lemon drink is also extremely good. And be sure to cuddle-up in bed when you have a cold, as it will make the body sweat out the germs.

Cool lemon juice and honey are a great soother for a sore throat and gives the body much-needed vitamin C at the same time The juice of one lemon in a glass of water is sufficient. Melt the honey in a little hot water for ease of mixing.

A smear of Vaseline or petroleum jelly will do wonders for those sore lips and nose that often accompany a cold.

A 'streaming cold' where the nose and eyes water profusely, can respond to drinking onion water. Simply dip a slice of onion into a glass of hot water for two seconds, then sip the cooled water throughout the day. Half an onion on the bedside table also alleviates cold symptoms because its odor is inhaled while you sleep.

People prone to catarrh may find that chewing the buds from a pine or larch throughout the day will clear up their condition in just a few days.

Do you suffer from sore eyes? If your eyes are sore from lengthy exposure to the sun, try beating the white of an egg and then spread it over a cloth and bandage the eyes with it. Leave the preparation on overnight. Soft cheese (quark) is also a good remedy for this condition.

For those unpleasant times when you suffer from diarrhea, two tablespoons of brown vinegar will usually fix the problem. Vinegar can be rather horrible to take, but who cares! The problem is more horrible. Vinegar can usually be found in most people's cupboards, so you don't need to worry about finding someone to run to the shop for you in an emergency.

Sleepless? Instead of reaching for sleeping pills, which can quickly become addictive, try this: Drink only caffeine free tea or coffee starting late in the afternoon.. Go to bed earlier rather than later, as being overtired tends to keep people awake. Make sure the bedroom is dark and quiet. Use only pure wool or cotton sheets and blankets. Polyester materials can cause sweat and make you thirsty (if your child constantly asks for water throughout the night, this could be the reason).

And don't watch those scary movies just before retiring! If you still can't sleep, make a tea of lemongrass or drink a nightcap of herbal tea containing chamomile. It's easy to grow lemongrass in your garden or start a flower pot on the balcony for ease of picking. Simply steep a handful in boiling water for five minutes. Honey may be added for a sweetener.

Of course there will be times when you do need modern drugs, so if these simple remedies don't have the required affect, be sure to see a health care professional.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
