Ishbel has been in touch to let us know that she has likely come down with the virus (cough, fever etc) so she has taken to bed and is isolating. I had a reassuring FaceTime call just now and she seems a bit better than first thing. Rather hot and bothered, and considering the momentous step of changing from her winter PJs to the summer ones. Last night the poor thing felt so awful she couldn’t face cooking tea so dined on “bunny crumpets” (seemingly an easter delicacy – I have googled them and the Asda ones are rather sinister). Friend Jane is lined up to deliver pizza in extremis, which may be soon as there are only 4 bunny crumpets left.
