For the last week I've done everything to resist the flu which caught my kin one by one. First was our older daughter who brought the plague from the kindergarten I presume. Then my dear wife fell ill an finally even baby Anna had a running nose. Finally two days ago it got me. All the sinuses as well as my internal ears seem to have filled with mucus and I'm coughing without cease.
Really I don't want two whine but for next saturday we planned some kind of unique Napoleonic game. After some throwbacks with schedules this year a few guys from our gaming club agreed to meet in a boyscout hall next weekend, bring all the Napoleonic stuff they want to field and have a simply game. Pure fun without special rules, tricky scenarios and all that tricky stuff. So how to get fit within two days?
With a pillow and a hot Toddy or two:
The pillow is a present of matchless Mrs Monty. Actually she started the embroidery two years ago as the motiv implies. Although she finished it during the year after it took some time to sew the pillowcase around it. Anyway now it's finished and I can't thank my wife enough for the time she put into this present!
Besides that a traditional medicine shall help me to restore health. Most of you will probably know hot Toddy. A drink consisting of hot water, lemon juice, either sugar and honey as well as a good slug of whisky. By coincidence I found a recipe with tea instead of water and had a nice's Twining Earl Grey transformed into hot Toddy.
Excellent brew and I feel better and better sip by sip!
So I'm rather optimistic for the weekend and will let you know how our gaming saturday went. Cheers!
