oh i hear you.

before the age of 50 you either get flu.. the shits.. headaches...maybe a broken bone....after 50 you get all sorts of weird pains and sensations and you think they must be a tumour or something

last week i came home and commented on the nice smell coming from the kitchen..."are you making a cake?"... "no?!?"

after a couple of days of being able to smell a sort of alcoholic/vanilla smell i took to google where i discovered "phantosmia" which is where you smell things that dont exist... basically it could be a fault with the nervous system or brain seizures.. possibly caused by strokes or head injuries (regular readers may remember my ladder fall a few weeks ago...)

so by this time im shitting meself and book a doctors appointment... they couldnt find anything wrong so ive gone home completely dejected

on saturday the smell was really vivid and i thought i was going to keel over there and then....we were just off to the farmers market and as i was collecting the shopping bags i noted a bag of pears i forgot to unpack the week before.... all brown and rotting

no other fucker in the house could smell it!
I'm sorry philly, but I did laugh good n proper at this! :lol:
a large pear tarte tatin seems to have cured it

Listening to Talk Talk lately. Life's What You Make It. Spirit of Eden album. The music lifts you to another place.

Spirit of Eden is the benchmark for pretty much anything when my band writes and record. Hollis was incredible.
All the gear... absolutely no idea...

Oh man, there's lead guitar melody in that song that gives me chills.
