I'm in quarantine. The doctor thinks I've got whooping cough so I have to to stay out of action for five days while I take medication to kill the bugs. I am hopeful that the battle is being won because I have felt really ill for a while now, and today I felt brighter. I am allowed back to school next Monday, so have been enjoying time at home with my darling friends. I just wish the horses were here too. Mr Mouse loves the brassica patch because he can lurk among the umbrella-like leaves, peering out at the world going by.
