Update: Just had a closer look, only their later albums are there. The early ones like Murrumbidgee are not. I wonder why?

At the festival, I was surprised by how well I can still play the whistle as in recent times I have been very bad at playing the high notes. So maybe I should get some lessons and see if I can learn to be a better player.

My doctor said that the reaction had to have been caused by something in the 48 hours prior to the first reactions. The doctor at the hospital was also of the same view. They thought it was likely it was something like a new detergent or insect spray, and if not this something I had eaten. As I have not been using any new detergents, insect sprays or other such chemicals, it was probably caused by food. At fist I suspected the American Food I had on the day I was ill (KFC) as there was something a little unusual about the chicken. Though I did not stop eating it. The next obvious possible cause was the Italian food I had had the day before (Spaghetti bolognese). I had not finished the meal as I felt full. But maybe there was more to it.
So I have been gradually adding things back into what I eat. I emptied the half full bottle of wine, on the grounds to be better safe than sorry. However, in the end it looks like it was the tub of Cadbury peppermint icecream. I had eaten this for weeks before the illness (it is a 2 litre tub) so originally I had not considered this a possible cause. However, Tony says that Sandra will get ill from Oranges only after eating them for a week, so maybe this is the case. I had the iceream on the day I got ill, on the day I got worse and only a few days ago when I tried some more and had a small and instant reaction for 48 hours. However, I am not 100% sure this is the cause, or perhaps the only cause. I did have peppermint tea the day before I was sick for the first time in a long time.
So my current analysis of the cause is:
85% - Peppermint icecream
5% - KFC
5% - spaghetti bolognese
5% - some other cause

I have been listening to lots of podcasts while at home. There were interesting tidbits:
- Gorbachev thinks Putin is a good leader and that Yeltsin was a bad leader.
- The fellow at the center of the Fiji coup would have ended up in jail if he did not take over the country. Why did I not read that in the print news?
