I'm very sure you've been anxiously waiting for a post from me. Thus, stay calm as I let you know that I'm not exactly well enough to do a blog post. Typing this post is taking a lot of effort as you will begin to understand.
Oh yes, I left Vancouver at 7:00 P.M., Saturday, October 8. I arrived just before noon, Sunday October 9, at Manchester airport wondering where the hell the weekend had gone. I prepared myself for the jet lag.
The next few days and the jet lag kicked in, big time! It seemed that my body was here but my mind was 8 time zones behind.
Still, I waited for the jet lag to subside only to then realise that I'd picked up a rather nasty flu bug that could be traced back to my time in Kelowna, British Columbia. I worked that out because my friend, Heather, whom I'd being staying with in Kelowna, mentioned to me in a recent phone call that she was just getting over the flu.
Fantastic! I travelled over 4500 miles, went back 8 time zones just to get some Canadian flu. A bit of "eh fever", eh.
I also noticed about a week before the end of my trip to British Columbia that I had a lump growing on the bottom of my right elbow. It's called bursitis, aka "tennis elbow", although I didn't play any tennis. Tennis elbow can be caused by a thump to the elbow, or can be caused by doing a repetitive motion. No, not that!
I have no idea how I got such a condition. You will now further understand that typing this post is indeed taking a lot of effort. Try typing when you've got a giant bollock flopping onto your keyboard.
I've been to the doctor's who has prescribed a course of anti-inflammatory drugs. I'm hoping to see some improvement over the next few days, If not, I have to go to Accident and Emergency to get the big elbow bollock popped.
So there it is. I've got the flu, a "testicle" drooping down from my right elbow and a bit of lingering jet lag.
While I'm in what I hope is recovery mode, the comment section will be set to the off position on this post. I really don't want to attempt to keep shoving my flopping ball sack off the keyboard.
Thanks and I hope you are well, eh.
