Cowart's Common Room
Happy Boxing Day

To anyone who has the time to pop in - have a happy Boxing Day.
To Westerwitch and family - the indigestion mixture is on its way! Have a lovely time - I remember Christmases like that from my 'previous existence' with No 1! I don't remember WW mentioning all the liquid refreshment that I am sure will accompany it - alkaseltza is on its way too - or a hair of the dog, whichever you prefer.
To Camilla - I am so sorry for your husband and son. My step-son was in the same state. Glad you and daughter had a good meal - alot of work just for 2 though. Hope neither of you go down with it.
We had a very quiet day in Northumberland. To Church in neighbouring village at 10.30. A full house with carols built into the Eucharist. Then for a walk from there - not too far us being oldies - sigh - and a very cold wind, though the sun shone. Back for soup and present opening. Some time spent trying to put together the lovely new bird table G had given me. Birds love it. Christmas dinner all ready cooked by Scottish Gourmet and just had to be reheated. It was delicious.
Today, I have the dreaded cough lurgy that was threatening yesterday.

Wizzard's Avatar Happy Boxing Day Withy. It is awful having the lurgy over Christmas - I picked one up 2 days before and felt a lot better yesterday and even better today as we walked round Glen Lochay. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Camilla's Avatar How very kind Withy, thank you for your get well message for son & HL. A little better today, coughing is not quite so bad.

So sorry to hear that your step-son and you are not too well either, it is a very strong infection going around. Wishing you both that you feel much better soon.

Frances's Avatar A quite late Happy Boxing Day to you Withy.

I am gonna have to do some research to discover just what lurgy might be. You do know that in the States we do look to you all to explore the language.

I love to find what you all have discovered! I am joking a bit, but lurgy is a new word for me, and I want to be able to toss it about myself.
