Yes, it is that time of the year when doctors send out their flu jab invites and when I spend ten seconds thinking it over before graciously declining. Despite being diabetic, arthritic and having suffered two small strokes I am generally of robust type. No sniffles or temperatures for this old gal! However, this past week has seen me in the clutches of a full blown common cold. Hacking cough, tap dripping nose, sore throat and ear infection coupled with a fevered brow, have all conspired to make me give pause to my decision. Maybe I shall gratefully accept my invitation after all.
