Three weeks into this bout of bronchitis, having completed the course of antibiotics and faithfully huffed all the doses from all the puffers, I am still coughing. If not quite as violently convulsive as it was at its peak, it’s loud, phlegmy, and definitely not the kind of thing you want to hear in the grocery store. Or, indeed, anywhere else. So Christmas was a bit isolated: just Himself, the cats and me — and the cough.

I was sick enough that no decorating was done, and fancy cooking was limited to a roast duck. Fortunately, there was a Christmas pudding in the freezer from last year, when I made a whole flock of them.

Tomorrow we take the road to Windsor, to see Himself’s sisters and to get our festive ticket punched with the extended kin-group. Alas, the cough is coming with us ...
