Sticks & String

A podcast by an Australian bloke who knits.

Sorry – no show this week

Sorry all, but there’s no show this week.

After I finished recording last Sunday I started feeling a little unwell. There have been a batch of viruses going around at school, with 20% of the kids away some days. Anyway I struggled on until Thursday and thought I had beaten it, but no, it got me and I’ve been in bed now since Friday. It’s a win for the cats I suppose, but it meant that nothing much got done for the show, and I’ve got a pile of correspondence from people that I haven’t got around to either.

So, please accept my apologies for not getting the show up. I’m feeling a little better now, and actually feel hungry enough to put some effort into making dinner. So until next week – carpe lanam.

  3. I’m sorry you’ve been sick, but glad you are on the mend now. I teach school, too, and can’t imagine 20% out! We would probably close school for at least a day. We’ve done that in the past for flu, etc. I’ll look forward to a new show next week!

  7. ahhhhh….I was wondering where the show was. Well, get well soon!

  8. Get well soon mate!
    It must be a rotten bug if it’s knocking the teachers down. Teachers, like nurses, usually develop fantastic immune systems as they’re exposed to so many viruses. Dont rush back, give yourself a bit extra time to feel fighting fit.

  9. Hang in there, David! As a fellow teacher, when in doubt, blame the kids for making you sick. 🙂

  10. Spend lots of time feeling better! I’d rather have you get well than work when you’re sick!

  17. Sorry to hear that you are ill, but it is good to know that your new computer software did not defeat you.

    All the best for a quick recovery!

  20. Sorry that you have been under the weather. Get plenty of rest and we will hear you soon. I do miss you when you are doing new podcasts. Take care get lots of fluids and some soup. I will be awaiting your return to health and a new podcast.

  21. I would send some good ol’ Southern Chicken and Dumplings or fresh peach cobbler (since it’s winter in your “neck of the woods”…)but it would probably spill and get confiscated by customs…so just accept a big internet hug and a “get well soon”…. oh, and ginger-steeped tea is excellent for any ailment…cheers- Elizabeth

  22. Hey, Honey. I hope you feel better soon.

    Comment by Coldfriday | 3 September 2008

  23. Get well, soon or at whatever speed your body needs! We all miss your voice and your podcast but want you to be well. I’d
    send along some homemade chicken soup if I could, but really,I think we all should head over to Elizabeth’s house for some of that cobbler as soon as you’re well!

  26. I hope you are feeling better. I love your show and look forward to the new one next week. Hope you were not too ill to knit! peace

  27. Redsknits and all- everyone’s welcome at Maison Cou Rouge!! We happen to be innundated with peaches here in the Middle-Of-Nowhere, Georgia- so now that David’s feeling better, everyone just paddle or surfboard on across the pond and head over to the East Coast of the US…just in time for a hurricane party!!(I grew up in Louisiana, so I know all about that stuff, too!!)

    Be sure to squeeze in those extra naps, David–I can’t imagine how horrible it must be to feel like death-warmed-over and having to deal with 20 hormone-laced teenaged boys…..

    cheers- Elizabeth
