No real news of dad, but when Basil went to see him yesterday he was shivering, though he denied being cold. It took the medic taking his blood pressure to notice to get action, after two tests showed his temperature was a degree below normal.

Ma’s infection has given her some fever, but not for long.

Basil has been keeping on top of the stress by cleaning and sorting; this is not a trait shared by all the family.

I have, however, been doing a massive amount, for me, of domestic stuff, including a shop weighing 16kg (I weighed me and the shopping, then just me).
