In addition to my computer woes - Skype is still playing hard to get - I've also got some sort of feverish bug. Apart from the random temperature, this particular infection has gone for the eyes and both are very swollen and watery. I look like a soft boiled egg with yak hair.
The phramacist helpfully labelled up two batches of eye stuff for me ("Left eye", "Right eye") and I've spent most of the day gazing blearily through a film of ointment. Boring and painful. Not a great combination.
