I woke at 1:00 a.m. on Friday, 8 December, and I've pretty much been sick with "the creeping crud" (translated: a gastro-intestinal virus) since then. Today is the first day I have felt semi-human. In fact, tonight I ate a couple of fried (in a non-stick pan) eggs and plain toast without feeling the need to stop halfway through and wretch.
(Judith's Rule: No one over the age of 12 should ever have to vomit.)
I did some knitting while I was recouperating. I'll post photos when I have some. Until then, wash your hands! Wear a face mask! Don't let this terrible stuff happen to you! :)
