It is now 4½ days (maybe less by the time you read this) until I have to get on the Sleeper train from Euston to Glasgow, for this years TGOC Challenge.
Thankfully without that f***ing coffin.
|Lucy’s 50th Birthday June 2011|
BUT… Here is the point.
It is less than a week to the actual start, and my lovely wife Lucy, has come home from work with a really grotty cold.
She is a primary school teacher, which is about the only reason that she cannot at present accompany me, even though she would love to.
But that is NOT the point of this.
As much as I love her
It is one of those coughy snotty ones.
The ones that IF I get them, can play havoc with my mild exercise induced asthma,
if it gets onto my chest.
The sort that can descend for me into another dose of £***ing antibiotics if it all goes tits up.
The sort that can really bugger up a Challenge.
Now, at this point I have NOT got it (yet).
I have many things crossed, including things that should never be crossed.
I DO NOT want this !!!
So here is my question really.
IF I was to get this cold 5 days before the Challenge
Added .. 23:00hrs Sun 6th May.
Touch wood Lucy is getting better (soon I will be able to talk to her without the mask)
