First Gremlin attack of 2022, at least for me – no sign of 3rd January column. Mind you, it isn’t that serious – my eldest daughter was back for Christmas and accidentally gave my middle daughter and myself the Omicron variant – I seem to be trying to collect the set!

Hi Iain,

Yes I know and I am very disheartened now after quite a while without missing a day.

However, it is worse news from you with again having to wrestle that virus, but thankful you and middle daughter seem to be coping well.

Both of you hang in there and just perhaps this worldwide misery will be suddenly gone, at least something to pray for.

HI Bobby,

Thanks for that but the 2nd infection isn’t as bad as the first which is something.

Hi Iain,

Better protect your youngest daughter for two reasons, first, she might feel left out and not fully look after herself, and other might be the worry and wear and tear on your beautiful wife, for being forced to care for so many.

Hopefully, normalcy may not be long in coming, but so-called medical experts seem to suggest, counting on that, may be far too optimistic.
