This bronchitis business is going around and poor Marko (poor me!) is sick as well. Joy. What a little bundle of joy the Albertyns are at the moment. Although, the kids seem to be on the mend, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, this has coincided with two (2) weeks school holiday and so just as the bronchitis clears up; cabin fever is hot on its heels and already threatening to inflict its poison on all and sundry. Help!
But enough about them, lets talk about me! I think I might need to have my toe amputated. It is very sad, but I see no other alternative. My left big toe is hot, swollen and throbbing in pain. I suspect an infection inflicted by the pedicure obtained on the cheap last week from the dubious Budget Barbie Beautician. Damn this recession, forcing me to lower my standards and put my feet at risk.
In other news, apparently most of you (except my favourite Aussie and NZ best friends) are on summer holidays. I have one thing to say to you: I hate you. I don’t want to hear how divine your holidays are, how hot it is there and how much fun you are having. I am about to unfriend you on Facebook and Twitter. It is effing freezing here, my winter sheets are all wet and to top it all, I am about to have my big toe amputated. The only silver lining is that it is too cold to wear sandals and so no one will notice the missing toe.
So anyway, that is my news. I’d love to stay and chat, but time is short and I need to google TOE INFECTION LEADS TO AMPUTATION to prepare myself for what lies ahead. Wish me luck.
