Not the Best Start to January

Well it’s not been quite the start to January I was expecting, and certainly not the start I desired. In fact it looks like that, for the moment at least, I have signed up to Dryanuary! Actually, it’s down to a touch of man-flu, although I must admit it has definitely put me off my beer.

I blame my wife, as when I arrived back home from my short trip to Norfolk, exactly a week ago, she had developed a sore throat and a hacking cough. So far, I’m relatively cough-free, but I’ve got the sore throat from hell! The latter feels like sandpaper every time I swallow, but with a full in tray at work it’s the sort of thing I could do without.

So if anyone knows of any beer-related remedies, or even some involving spirits, then would they kindly let me know?

You know you're really not well if it puts you off your beer!

Fortunately I haven’t been off my food; unlike my wife who’s only just starting to get her appetite back. I normally manage to avoid these bugs during the rest of the year, but there’s something about Christmas when everyone is cooped up indoors, which seems to lend itself to the spread of colds and flu.
The good news is I will risk a beer or two tomorrow!
