Yes, it’s that time of year.
And yes, we both had the flu shot. And no, it didn’t stop either of us catching flu.
The usual line up of symptoms, but I’ll spare you the detail. We’re tottering around the house in flannel pyjamas, shakily assembling tea, toast and doses of various remedies to hold the worst of it at bay. At some stage we’ll need to venture out to replenish stocks, but for now it’s lowering our aching bodies gratefully into soft beds, tempering the worst of the fever with hot showers, and hitting the cough mixture bottles with perhaps a little too much enthusiasm…
See you on the other side.
