Well not really ill, nothing lasting. I've had a bacterial infection of my tonsils and a really high fever and flu since Saturday.
It's a funny thing illness though, it takes you so much by surprise. I've had flu like it before but you forget how completely incapacitating it is. I was in bed for 4 days straight without really getting up and I've got up this morning to catch up on a few work things and I'm now completely exhausted.
Things aren't really helped by the fact that it's 30 degrees in the house and my sister in law came down on Saturday with her two kids, meaning four under 2 1/2 year olds running around or lying screaming. Mind you I don't think my wallowing around upstairs has engendered an awful lot of sympathy, they're on the brink of chaos on a permanent basis from what I can work out.
On the plus side I have listened or watched every single game of the World Cup so far, kinda. Some are a bit of a hazy blur. We won 5-0 against Paraguay right? Owen got a hattrick yeah. And I've lost over a stone in weight hoorah.
