I’ve been knocked by a yucky bug. My lovely Mum declared it to be a carousel virus as the whole family have been suffering with it for about a month. I have since found out that it is a throat infection.

Unfortunately this means that I have not been spending much time outside; on the allotment or in the garden.

So, forgive me for my silence whilst my throat recovers. I am hoping to be back on form as soon as the antibiotics kick in.
