V-Maxx Suspension Website

Only a few months ago I was at the Autosport International show fondling a set of V-Maxx coilovers, deciding whether I should take the plunge and get them for the Fabia.

Gastric Infection

Hardly the most interesting of blog posts, but it’s a welcome one for me as it hopefully signals the end of the past three weeks.

Since early Feb, I’ve been suffering from the most god-awful stomach acid and cramps which have left me pretty much knocked for six. With zero energy or appetite, I was living off a selection of pills designed to control the acid in one form or another.

Unfortunately it now means I’m off the coffee and curry for a bit so my days are tired and tasteless.

Anyway, touch wood, fingers crossed, rabbits foot and lucky heather on standby, the pains have gone and I’m on the mend.

UPDATE (May 2008)

Turns out the stomach pains above were probably a precursor to what I’ve just experienced – a burst appendix which lead onto peritonitis. From what I’ve since read up on peritonitis, it’s quite serious so quite glad I went under the knife and had everything sorted. Big thanks to all at Peterborough District Hospital!

It was quite early on a Friday night (6pm) but the restaurant was already quite busy with families so it was slightly noisier which was to be expected (parents – can you please teach your children to use their indoor voices when in Peterborough pizza restaurants?).
