No, not *that* kind of pox! But the doctor confirmed I have definitely got chickenpox. And as I’m highly contagious I’m under orders to confine myself to the house and not go back to work until at least Monday.
I expect I’ll be getting a lot of reading done over the next few days. I might even get my diary caught up – although the headache is making it a bit too painful to stare at a computer screen for very long.
