Yuk. The NBM and I both have the lergie. However, the situation is not all bad: the plus side is that I've spent my day sitting on the sofa in my pyjamas, knitting and watching soothing telly (Columbo, mainly. I love him!)
Anyhoo, the upshot is that I don't have much to blog about, so I thought I'd just post this pic that I made the NBM snap with her phone while we were in the Sains, earlier this week:
Nearly 400,000 little wooly hats have been made for The Big Knit, and these are now in the shops, adorning every chilly little bottle of Innocent smoothie! It's a happy win-win situation: the bottles are toasty-warm, and Age Concern get 50p for every hatted bottle sold.
Oooh, AND, there's an added advantage: if the purchasing customer happens to have a very small monkey with a chilly head, they can recycle the hat afterwards for monkey-noggin warming purposes. Hypothetically speaking, you understand.
Ugh, I feel ill. Time to head back to the sofa.
