Oh I seriously hate being sick. And I don't make a good patient. I'm feeling like my time with Kate has been robbed by a virus - we should be out gallivanting, or at least yakking up a storm, but I spent most of the day in bed sucking on lozenges that are totally useless or drinking disgusting blackcurrant drink laced liberally with drugs that knocks me out completely.

Not happy Jan!! *

Martin had a look at Henry and what at first looked like a spot of glue might fix, turns out to be a little more complicated. The whole weld has broken and needs either to be rewelded or a new silencer. Bugger! **

* This expression is specifically Australian from an ad on TV for Yellow Pages. Still makes me laugh

Apparently cannot be fixed with Duct Tape

It was araldite we thought would work until Martin realised that the exhaust was rubber mounted so it would not hold. Henry will just have to rattle his way to East Grinstead and the bike doctor! From Kate Pegler, on Aug 16, 2012 at 07:03AM
But I've been told that EVERYTHING can be fixed with Duct tape... or WD40. From Jacqui Kennedy, on Aug 17, 2012 at 11:21AM
