Steaming Chip

Apologies for no update yesterday. I’ve been suffering from a horrible bug the last month which I thought I was getting rid of, only for it to flare up with what I suppose was an horrible inevitability. The Chipster, if he has any fault (and I emphasise if), is plagued by sinuses that are too fine for the job. My ears are dull with catarrh and my eyes feel heavy. I’m now determined to get rid of this grumbling cold and I’ve immersed myself in a daily ritual of steaming bowls of heavily mentholated vapours which seems to be doing the trick.

My silence is also the result of my having to get the novel finished. I’ve pretty much written it all in draft but the last 10,000 words need rewriting before I consider my work at an end.

In the meantime, enjoy this picture which RealPolitik posted on his blog and which I paste here with flagrant disregard to the laws of copyright. If you're interested, it’s part of my autumn/winter collection of light plant and machinery available through Argos.

Thanks ST. Sudafed? I'll have to give it a try. I've been recommended steaming with tea tea oil. It helps but I want a quick fix...
