Flu season...

I have had a sick boy at home with me for the last couple of days. The flu season is well and truly in full swing here in Australia and it's really hitting people hard.

Apparently we are in the grips of one of the worst flu seasons in recent years with the number of people suffering from the flu increasing by 50 per cent this year. This is hardly surprising  following our horrific summer full of natural disasters and a cooler than usual Autumn/Winter.

Big Al has had the usual aches and pains combined with a runny nose and cough. He has been a very good patient but he is really getting sick of being stuck at home. I never thought I would ever say this but I think I might be sick of Winter! Thank goodness Spring is just around the corner.

Oh well, the cold temps are perfect tea-drinking weather so I think I might make a nice hot chocolate for Big Al and a strong cup of Yorkshire tea for me....

after all...

Drinking a daily cup of tea will surely starve the apothecary.

I guess it could be worse....I sure do hope that Mr Attorney's cold doesn't turn into the "Man Flu"....I couldn't handle two sick boys!

Best wishes until next time,
