Last Wednesday I had a flu shot. By Friday bits of me were aching. By Sunday I had the scratchy throat and by Tuesday I was really sick. I’m on the mend now I think but I still have a sore throat and a hacking cough. When I speak I sound like a poor waif as my voice is all but non-existent. However on the plus side – and there has to be one, right? – I have been sitting quietly, if sniffly, and hand quilting while listening to my audio books.
