I’ve been totally floored by a bad head cold, which turned into tonsillitis, for the past few days. One of those colds where you know exactly when and where you caught it, from a senior Scottish Government civil servant on day two after the holidays – to her credit she told me to stay back and would not even shake hands, but within two hours on the train home I was all sweaty and shivering. So five days of sneezing, snuffling, sore bones, sleepless nights.
The worst part is not being even able to take my wee walk along the beach in the morning. So this photo from December will just have to do.
