A trip to the doctor with the elderly relative took up a large proportion of the day. As he didn’t have an appointment, we had to wait and wait and wait. It seems that half the county has this nasty bug. Armed with iPad and Kindle, I was able to while away the hours, but I dread to think how many germs I inhaled. The heating was operating at full blast and I could almost see the viruses curled up with laughter as they garnered their strength to infect even more people.
