I thought I was getting better but it is fighting back, darn it. We have a family phone conference (smile) at ten this morning when we will decide but I suspect it will all be off until a weekend in January when everyone can make it together!
It's not just me not being well enough to cope, it's also that mum and Dad are in their eighties and should not be exposed to this sort of infection. It would be silly to put them in this position deliberately.
Ho hum! So very sad.
