What, Again?

Yes, again. Whatever the virus/bacteria/bug/infection was that Mary brought back with her has done its work remarkably well. I have relapsed for the third time. Or is it the fourth? I've lost track. We have been ingesting large quantities of pills, tablets, syrups, tisanes and chicken soup, keeping warm, drinking plenty of liquid, and getting bloody fed up with coughing, sneezing, sore throats, fevers and ridiculous weakness.

We've even used up the little bottle of Lourdes water.

Sorry to turn this effort into a sort of online medical report but that has been the principal focus of our lives for the past few weeks. Or perhaps months if you don't count the few days of respite in between bouts.

More later. But about something completely different. With any luck at all.
