    I'm double dropping on hayfever tablets and going around with shades on everywhere like Bono to minimise the affects, great weather and all but I'd love a day of heavy rain at the minute

    Was in liverpool with the young lad a couple of weeks ago and he was in bits with hayfever, went in to boots and got a box of 1 a day tablets for £1 and he never sneezed again for the whole day after taking 1, dynamite stuff.

    Had not suffered from hayfever much in the last few years and when I did it was generally at the start and end of summer.
    About 6 weeks ago one Friday in work got a nose bleed. Wasn't great the following week and went Docs. Said it was a bit of a bad sinus infection. Sure enough a week later I was worse and went back and had pnemonia. Just getting over it now. I wpuldnt mind but all started when we began to get the good weather.

    Decent price that, can you recall the brand please mate ?

    The Mrs. uses Zyrtec for hay fever, think they cost a lot more than a quid a box in good old Dublin though.

    Actually, as an aside, I've read that Pure Pharmacy are cheaper than Boots for prescription based stuff, so might be worth keeping them in mind when there's a prescription involved (no idea how they compare for the off the shelf stuff).

    Garrett a lot of the generic stuff contains the same dosage as Zirtek, I haven't bought it in years now you'd get a months supply for €10 or even cheaper in a Tesco chemist or Boots. Just ask them if it has the same dosage I think it's 10mg of the stuff.

    Still sitting outside as I post. Never got the shorts on once last summer. Long may in continue as it was an awful long winter in the West of Ireland so feel we are due a really good summer.

    Weather has been fabulous for the Isle of Mann TT bike racing. Coverage as always has been excellent on ITV4 all week. New lap record of the course today by Peter Hickman at an average speed of over 135mph.

    Got a 30 pack in Tesco today for €4, Cetrix I think they were called. Same dose as Zirtek, they're on offer.

    On another note I was only thinking today, when did we last get a decent spill of rain?
