Better

Righto, so there is plenty of catching up for me today, not least of all at work and on my rss-reader ... because I did end up going home yesterday at around 12h30. Sadly I did not manage to avoid the involuntary un-burdening of breakfast in the company loo's ... I was literally on my way out the door. But hey, I guess I should be greatful it didn't stirke at any point on my 20 minute drive home. I literally spent the rest of the day on the couch under a duvet (I was freezing the entire day), reading or sleeping. Thankfully it seems to only have either a) been something I ate (can't imagine what) or b) a 24hour bug. because I managed to keep down the toast and apple I had at around 3pm and some chicken soup Varen brought home for me for dinner.

And today I'm back feeling just about back on top form :) I will say tho that when I was sick for a week back in 2006, I remember Woolies chicken soup being an awful lot better ... it was more of a broth than the tinned chicken soup they have today (or maybe Varen just bought the wrong one?). Either way, it was not very tasty and I can't imagine why anyone who wasn't ill (and going for something particularly bland) would bother eating it. Sigh.

But I must say, I'm glad I'm feeling better because I have a lunch with some of my old colleagues scheduled for later and an all-you-can-eat sushi night tonight ... I think I'll take it easy at lunch and hope that by the time we start on the sushi I can eat to my hearts content without worrying if I'll be seeing it again shortly!

Oh my word, I had that quite a while ago. I woke up feeling a bit groggy but okay. Ate my breakfast at work and kept it down for about two seconds. I threw up the entire day until it stopped at about midnight and then the next day I was fine.
Obviously something in the system that didn't go down well!
Did you have the chicken noodle soup? I love it. It is quite plain, but if I'm in the mood for plain - I WOLF it down.
Glad you're feeling better - enjoy the sushi!

Glad to hear you are better again, those sort of bugs are unpleasant...

I like tomato soup when I am not well but that may well be because I am not a great fan of chicken soup though I understand that it can be used for helping recovery in times of illness.

@jane - thanks :) you too ...

@benny - sadly Varen got me the tinned chicken soup (not sure of the exact verbiage) ... the fresh chicken noodle one I also quite like, but they only had 1.2 litre bags left for sale and I just wasn't feeling quite up for that much of it ;)

@sage -oooh, tomato soup is generally my fav ... but I was just a bit worried about the creamy-ness of it conflicting with my stomach. I have some in the freezer for lunch sometime soon tho ;)
