Pneumonia


I guess being a serial offender of not going to the doctor’s when ill has its downside – you sometimes develop pneumonia. I currently have pneumonia and have been quite ill. I spent a small amount of time in hospital hooked up to a drip and I now am spending a lot of time at home doing very little in an effort to shake it.

Perhaps I’ll go see a doctor before getting pneumonia next time – worth a thought.

Catching Up After Illness


I think I have now finally caught up with my Blogging routine following my recent illness (actually I’m still a little ill – but nearly over it). Obviously the posts missed haven’t been done, but I am back on schedule with posts. At least I think I am. So it is good to be able to be once again comfortable with the workload, etc. I really hate falling out of sync.

Big Breakfast and the Paper


Big BreakfastSomething I quite like to do is read the paper and have a Big Breakfast somewhere. I know of a couple of places that I go to from time to time to have what’s known as a ‘Big Breakfast’ and to read the paper – I usually also have a 600ml Coke with it. So as you can see, it’s not necessarily the healthiest breakfast you can get. I don’t do it too often, but today was one of those times when I do. In fact, it would be the first time in months that I have done so. I’m on holidays and it was something of a holiday treat. I’m not likely to do so again for some time, as I am trying to be a bit healthier and loose a bit of weight, but with the occasional indulgence.

As you can see in the picture, there’s the Big Breakfast and the paper as well. So what’s in the Big Breakfast? Well in this example of the Big Breakfast there were 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of toast, some chips, 1 sausage, some bacon and 2 small hash browns. You can get some fried tomato at this place if you want it, but I always choose not to – they make me ill. The quality of the Big Breakfast can be a little up and down, even in the same establishment. This one was pretty good, but I do get the occasional poor slap up from time to time, which can be disappointing. I generally don’t give a place too many opportunities with poor quality meals.

On of the worst things in a Big Breakfast, or indeed any type of fried egg, is getting some shell served up with the egg. Places that do that to me don’t get many second chances – I really hate that.

So that was a Brunch I like to have every so often – yeah Brunch. I usually don’t have lunch when I’ve had a Big Breakfast – far too many calories if I did that!
