Blogging has been light to non-existent lately because I've been struck down by a particularly nasty throat infection. I never knew a sore throat could be this painful. I've tried all sorts of remedies (gargling vinegar or salt water), over-the-counter medications, sprays- and none of it has worked. Some ibuprofen took the edge off a little once in a while but swallowing pills was a major event itself. One thing that did help- bizarrely- was salt and vinegar flavour crisps- Walkers brand to be precise. Actual salt and vinegar was useless but the crisps did the trick. Don't ask why because I haven't a clue.
