I managed to get through the whole winter this year without any sign of a cold or the flu. But come the first day of spring I was flattened by the heaviest of head colds which, as usual in my case, became a chest infection. Luckily I had antibiotics on hand and so the healing begins, but not quickly. I have already missed two events that I have been looking forward to for weeks, and work on the book has ground to a standstill.
What a bummer way to start the season!
