…and the aches have (all but) gone. Isn’t the human body a marvellous thing? My sister, a doctor, has a miracle cure that works for 95% of all problems. It is the ‘Baked Bean’ cure*. Obviously, organic Heinz work best, but any baked beans will do.
At the onset of symptoms, eat half a tin of baked beans every day for a week. If the symptoms have not cleared up, double the dosage and eat a tin of beans every day for the next week. At the end of this course of treatment, 95% of ailments will have cleared up. Due purely to the miraculous healing power of beans (o yes, and the human body).
Following Kaye’s advice, I scouted out a new route for today. Who knew there were so many parks, greens and commons within spitting distance of my house? I went for a small common. Three circuits of about 1.5km. This route comes with built in weight training. By the end of it, I was carrying my own weight in mud and leaf mould on the bottom of my shoes. It also has ducks, (grey) squirrels, dogs and children. Very picturesque.
*This does not consitute real medical advice. For that, you need to visit a doctor. But remember, before you go to A&E, ask yourself two questions:
- Is it an accident?
- Is it an emergency?
