When my husband was diagnosed with pneumonia last week he said the doctor had described the conditions this winter as a 'perfect storm'. The wet and freezing weather and the cocktail of flu and colds raging throughout the region has knocked out about half my six year old's class at school. Meanwhile poor Eivind has been in bed for seven days now.
Health - or lack of it - seems to be the general topic of conversation these days but it's also a reminder that we are very lucky compared with previous generations.
Though this is a house of sickness I have some good news on the writing front. It's too early to go into details, but I will in my next post.
