Readers, there will be a short break in transmission while I am laid low with the dreaded flu. Fortunately, I had my flu shot a few months ago otherwise I fear it could have been much worse. Even so, it is very unpleasant. The rest of my family were “too busy” to organise their shots, so they are much worse off.
The moral of this story is get your flu shot early. You may still get the flu, but hopefully it won’t be as bad.
