Unfortunately, I have to tell you that you didn’t wish hard enough. Shame on you:)
Two days before the School was due to begin I was bitten by a bloodsucker who then compounded the assault by leaving part of itself in me. I made Monday’s sessions but by the Tuesday infection was coursing round my body and since then I haven’t known which was more responsible for my being proper poorly, the bloodsucker or the antibiotics necessary to clobber it.
I’m still too wobbly to write here for any length of time and spending far too much of my life sprinting to the bathroom to get any reading done. I will try and respond to your comments from the last fortnight, bit by bit, and get round to visiting as soon as I can but for the moment I have to beg your indulgence.
P.S. The wretched insect even managed to bit me in a place I couldn’t see and could only reach with my non-dominant hand. Are they trained to be as inconsiderate as possible?
