death and taxes

Surprisingly, I'm actually quite a healthy person. Aside from the shingles, and swmbo breaking my knee (seriously!) I've been blessed with good health. The doctor has recently got his claws into me and yesterday, I think the blood pressure tablets tried to kill me. 22 hours sweating and shivering in bed, killer headache, the lot.

Typical. The first time I've had to take time off Work in 15 years due to ill health, and it was the stuff the doctor gave me.. Sigh.

Recovered enough to wish my daughter a happy 19th birthday today. *now* I feel old..
