Thank Goodness For Vegemite!!

Just a quick post to let you know I'm still alive ... mostly! Tiffy's party went well on the weekend and I've got LOTS of photos of that to share with you, but they'll have to wait til I'm back on deck. You see ... a head cold ambushed me late last week ... it often happens when I'm really busy and don't look after myself as well as my Mother says I should!! :0) That wouldn't have been TOO bad, but when it conspired with a change in the weather to tip my asthma over the edge, things went a little south. There was a quick trip to the emergency room at the Mundubbera Hospital ... the only way to access a Dr on a weekend in my small home town ... where the lovely locum Dr gave me a script for the medication that would get my asthma back under control. The catch was ... we had to wait until we got back to Toowoomba to fill it as the chemist doesn't open on a Sunday. So, two days of medication kicking in, two days off work (most of it spent in bed) and I'm starting to feel like I'll live ... just as soon as my head decides to stop revolving every time I get up! :0)

It was a bit funny to read Toni's post this morning, where she featured the very Aussie product of Vegemite as her Tuesday Treasure, cos what have I been subsisting on for the last couple of days ...

Vegemite toast and orange juice! :0) It's just one of those 'comfort' foods when I'm feeling icky. Don't know how you poor overseas gals cope without Vegemite when you feel icky ... what is YOUR comfort food equivalent for Vegemite toast when you're unwell???

So ... I'm off to take the next round of cold tablets and wash them down with some of that orange juice, but I promise I'll be back in the next few days when I'm fully back on deck to share some photos of Tiffy's party. Til next time ...

(sniffle, snuffle, cough, splutter!!)

Vegemite toast - just right for a pick me up.
Although when I have a cold I do like canned tomato soup too.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Poor you - hope you are feeling better now.
Vegemite looks something like Bovril (?) which is a family favourite. But I can't get it here anymore as there
is now something in it that Norwegians aren't allowed to ingest!
Yes, I'm planning a trip to England soon!

What a shame that you've been feeling so poorly, but good to hear that you're on the mend. We have both Marmite and Vegemite here in the UK and in our house we have to have both, as DH is a Marmite boy and I prefer Vegemite, but either is good when we're feeling under the weather.

Yep.. Vegemite on toast is our great Aussie cure-all. Our equivallent to chicken soup :p
Hope you feel better soon

Hi Kris,
Oh no, what a way to end a great weekend. I'm glad to hear you're slowly on the mend.
Some good sewing therapy will help~ I'm sure.
Take it easy,
