I have a very annoying track record, one that really frustrates me. That is getting sick on holiday.
It feels like almost any time I go on holiday I get sick. And not just a little sick, but a lot sick.
There was the time we went to Disney World in Florida and I got measles. Then there was time I went to Expo 88 in Brisbane and got pneumonia. Good times!
I'm now in the most idyllic seaside town you can imagine, with glands swollen to the size of golf balls on my neck. Shivers and chills. Feeling like I've been hit by a bus.
Last night we ate at a little seafood restaurant. Calamari, sardines, prawns the size of my hands. Carafes of good wine and all I wanted to do was slide under the table. Sitting on the Adriatic, never imagining I'd get the chance to have such a simply good meal. Annoying to say the least.
So, go away illness and, please, do not strike anyone else in this family!
