What a rubbish Christmas.

Post by Syl on Thu Dec 29, 2016 1:32 pm

I hope everyone fared better than me.
Went out Christmas eve for a lovely meal for two at nice restaurant.
Woke in the night ill....VERY ill.
I thought I had food poisoning I was so sick.....had to cancel Christmas day and OH had a sandwich for his Christmas dinner. Crying or Very sad Boxing day I always do a buffet for family.....had to cancel and son took the food back to his.
Whatever it was turned into a really bad virus, (cough, chest infection, cant eat or sleep) I still feel horrible.pale

But.....I have lost half a stone...every cloud. cheers

I bought a turkey crown from M&S - tasteless and disappointing - the Aldi one is better.

It's horrible being ill over Christmas. It's been quiet for us but I'm working today and tomorrow. I'm having next week off though. From work at least. Switching my phone off.

Could have been worse. People complained that the turkeys they bought from TESCO were green in the middle after they had been cooked... Shocked

I think Turkey is pretty over rated....I buy large chicken breasts, moister, tastier, and you are not eating them for days later trying to use them all up.

I didn't watch her...well I was in bed anyway.

My Mum used to love watching the Queen every Christmas day at 3pm.....she looked forward to it, then moaned about her all the way through it.
It was a lovely family tradition. Laughing

I did...it's not flu, not sure what it is.
Some horrible winter virus probably....I don't suit the cold weather.

There was a real horrible one going round before Xmas - a nurse told me that they played it down so as not to scare folk - the after effects can last quite a few weeks.

The worst flu I ever had a few years ago left me with toothache and eye socket ache for weeks....that was odd.
At the moment I am concentrated on not coughing my guts up....so the later trivialities can wait.

A cough is a lingering legacy of the bug I mentioned - take extra care.

Had a TURKEY Crown from Iceland, Christmas dinner was not too bad, but by evening it was dry and chewy. Boxing day it was cut up for Daughters dog. Last year we had a Capon,it was juicy and soft, by Boxing day evening it was still being eaten, [Dog finished it off]. My Cat will not touch Turkey or Chicken, but give him Ham and he loves it.

Thanks Miffs....well for the first time since Sunday I have been up...so that's a start.

It's a huge disappointment when all the Christmas plans are scuppered though. I am left with a fridge full of food (sellby dates are still good on some stuff) and absolutely no appetite to eat.

Cats are so fussy nowadays.
Our little adopted cat will eat turkey and chicken....only M&S wafer thin ham though...she wont eat thicker sliced, and she hates fish (every kind)...she does like a tiny bit of stilton though as a treat.

The Wife buys him those little packets of very thin sliced ham, he has one slice a day. He can be upstairs asleep on my bed yet when I get the ham out of the fridge, making no noise, he comes thundering down the stairs crying like mad.

I was told she had been taken to throw to fighting dogs to help train them to kill. I would have rather have not known that, I spent a few miserable weeks thinking of it.

This little cat that almost lives with us...she is female (I had no experience of female cats before her) so I wonder if anyone knows... is this normal?
She is very unaffectionate, she hates being picked up, cuddled, touched even...and she never meows, she was abused and abandoned when little, so that may account for that. The thing is, with me she will sometimes get affectionate, purring and rubbing against me, I will stroke her and she loves it.....then suddenly she turns, claws out, it's as if she resents the fact that she felt anything but disdain for me...

I doubt that  is true - or at least I hope it isn't. She probably got lost or perhaps was taken in by someone - I had a friend who had 13 cats, most of whom wandered in one and day and stayed - cats can be unpredictable creatures

If she has been abused it will may take her some considerable time to feel completely secure. It's taken me 2 years to get my youngest (and previously neglected) younger dog to relax, but even now he'll turn for no apparent reason.

We have known her for about 6 years now Ziz....so I think it's just her temperament now....she also has arthritis, and the vet said that could be down to her being kicked about when young. Crying or Very sad

It's so sad when animals, like her and your dog, have been abused....like with children, some find it hard to forget.

6 years - little chance now then, though she should mellow a little with old age.  Yes, they never quite forget no matter what you do.

I wish sentences were higher for people who mistreat animals...bastards.

I thought it may be peculiar to female cats...Tom cats are different, ime anyway....they just accept anything and everything with gusto.

OK...I'm getting confused now, strong pain killers and brandy in tea (odd how all hot drinks taste foul when you have a bug, so brandy disguises the taste) have made my head a bit cotton woolly today....for a change. Laughing

Simply put - all abusers should be given harsher sanctions.

Yes....but where will they go?
With the prison crisis people are calling for less people to be jailed not more.

I'm all for a bit of vigilantism if the occasion demands.

The weak must be protected - sometimes it is necessary to "have a word" - it's not vigilantism, it's civic duty.

Went out Christmas eve for a lovely meal for two at nice restaurant.
Woke in the night ill....VERY ill.
I thought I had food poisoning I was so sick.....had to cancel Christmas day and OH had a sandwich for his Christmas dinner. Crying or Very sad  Boxing day I always do a buffet for family.....had to cancel and son took the food back to his.
Whatever it was turned into a really bad virus, (cough, chest infection, cant eat or sleep) I still feel horrible.pale

But.....I have lost half a stone...every cloud. cheers


I had a really nasty dose of flu/virus/something the weekend before Christmas... felt absolutely terrible for 3-4 days... but also couple days before not right and few days after still pretty bad.


The worst few days, I felt so bad I thought I was dying!


Still not 100% now...


Is a really nasty illness... whatever it is... wouldn't wish it on anyone!

It's always comforting to know someone has felt as rotten... Laughing I too felt like I was dying, and didn't much care at the time...I do feel a bit better today though.

Seriously, I'm glad you are over the worst of it Tommy.
