NEW 'ORCHARD'....








ABOVE:  Before, During and After.  Didn't Stew do a good job?   I 'supervised'... with a wee tipple in me hand, I did, I did!   lol
Today?  Stew goes back to work... I get to do some housework... and today I think I will introduce my youngest two to dusting.  Good idea eh? 
ONWARD....
What sort of trees are they?  Good question!  2 Plums, that will pollinate each other, 3 Ugli's... like a Tangelo, and two feijoa.   All fruits I like, and will actually EAT!  lol.   Well ... I also would love to make plum jam again one day.

Can't say I've been having 'fun' today.  My cold has moved into the NEXT phase.  The phase where you cough so much you VOMIT ... and vomit.... and vomit.
I don't recommend this as a 'weight loss' method!  It sucks.  I just lost all me lunch... gross.
I should be going down to the bank to deposit a cheque.. but I soooo don't want to be standing in line with a bucket.  *sigh*

I'm having a quiet afternoon!  trying to do nothing to spark a serious bout of coughing again... cos that is driving me nuts!  I hate hate hate throwing up!  Bile.... goddam ikkkkk.

End of Day: didn't feel like steak and coleslaw for dinner... I didn't think it would be very nice to 'bring back'  so Stew went and bought some cake and custard.  It stayed down about half an hour.  NICE.  But was better to chuck up than steak I am SURE!   Hopefully this cough will pass soon.. or I shall have to visit me doctor!  nite nite.

  8. You truly need traditional Chinese herbs concoction. You only suffer horribly (the swallowing bit) for a few seconds.

    Yes that sounds nasty, coughing with vomiting. The only time I've vomited with a cold was when I had sinusitus. Get well soon and happy fruiting with the orchard! WOMBAT

  18. Not nice, I was diagnosed wih bronchitis 3 weeks ago and STILL have the cough, thankfully not as severe as yours - hope you get better soon!

    Kids need balance in their lives - don't deprive them by just introducing them to dusting - add vacuuming, cooking and washing to the list too ... lol ... wish mine were old enough to teach those little tasks!

    Well done on the supervising - Stew did a great job but as they say behind every man is a good woman!

  19. Chris, please go to the Dr!! I was in a similar coughing and vomitting situation some years ago and turns out I had whooping cough. Take care

  20. You've been sick for awhile and it sounds worst. I do think a trip to the Dr would be in order. Thats going to be quite the orchard in years to come. Hope you are feeling better soon.
