I've had a sore throat and cough for the last two days. I've checked that am not sprouting a curly tail and I don't oink when I utter a few croaky words, so I think I am all right. Just a belated winter cold, then. But what with Alleyns school only four miles away in one direction and Kay informing me that a friend of a friend of a friend's brother's cousin has gone down with it at a school only two miles away in the other direction, this swine flu is kinda circling us. I'll keep you posted - if I survive the fever of government pamphlets coming through my letterbox!
