Sods Law and the Roses

Sometimes CF can really kick you up the backside - like when you catch a cold on the last day of your IVs. When I went into the outpatients to do my scores I got no change at FEV1 2.3 /  FVC3.3 so it looks like the IVs were completely negated by the cold, gutted :-( So I'm back on 2 weeks of orals (Cipro and Doxycyline, again) to carry me over this chesty cold, and as much running as I can manage in this shitty weather.

Anyway, I did fit in a trip to see the Roses at Heaton park last week, which was brilliant. The Stone Roses are part of my misspent youth, they first broke through when I was about 16...pop music had become really bland at that point and when they first appeared on Top of The Pops (in the same week as The Happy Mondays) it was a seminal moment: finally here was something real after all that bland rubbish, and they were from Manchester as well, fantastic! We're the band any good? After a couple of glasses of cheap red wine in a comedy packed to the rafters metrolink who can tell? But the music and crowd were so happy and positive it seemed to carry everyone away on a nostalgic bubble of happiness that rarely actually happens at these type of concerts, and personally, I thought it was a amazing. :-)

Now you say you like them, but with your reputation for black humouur I have no idea whether you're being sarcastic or not ;-)
