So I'm ill. I was smug because I thought I'd avoided the cold/flu virus that infested the rest of my family until I awoke at 4.00am a few days ago with chattering teeth unable to decide whether I was hot or cold. Since then its been a wonderful time of duvets on the sofa and daytime TV. And daytime TV is novel at first because while I'm working I don't get to see it but then after experiencing Jeremy Kyle, Cash in the Attic, Floggit my wife somewhat alarmed said to me 'why are your ears and shoulders wet?' and then I realised my brain was dribbling from my ears.
I did get to see a classic film by Hitchcock called Topaz so not all bad and now there is a load of Big Bang Theory on so things are picking up. I just finished reading War of the Worlds and that classic idea from the films and the book are ringing in my ears about God in his wisdom creating the microscopic life forms ie viruses that ultimately finished off the aliens. Well this one might just finish me off! And I'm inthe middle of a piece and I can't finish it as I barely have enough energy to do this!
Only 4 months till spring.
