It seems that my body is hosting a tag-team of infections, taking it in turns to overpower my feeble swooning immune system and ravage it whilst twirling their moustachios. Listen...you can just hear them going "Mwahahahahahahahaaaaa" as they do it.
Anyway, he's prescribed me some more powerful antibiotics and signed me off work for a week, and told me to come back if I am not greatly improved by the weekend. He was very reassuring, which has made me feel much better.
Whilst walking around town* for a few minutes waiting for my prescription to be made up, I took a couple of pictures of the hoar frost on the trees. It is still minus 4 outside, even though the sun is shining. At least we haven't had any snow recently.
It's very pretty out there. I'm just glad I get to enjoy it from inside my warm cosy house.
Other news: All the fish in the aquarium are still alive, which is encouraging.The two little shoals of tetra and barbs are swimming around together, which is entertaining to watch. The gourami seems to prefer hanging about near the surface, sometimes diving down to the gravel at the bottom, terrorising the leopard cory.
*Ha. But I did pop into the butcher to get some mince, and tell them how great the turkey was.
