I got knocked out by some pesky virus last month - after mai laidy waif checked with the Swine Flu Helpline that it was safe for her to be in the same room as me, she dragged me off to the doctor, where I was told "There's a virus going round, there's nothing we can give you for it, it lasts 10-15 days" In my case I spent 4-5 days (not able to remember clearly) in bed sweating, shivering and aching all over, then another week with a case of the punies - no energy to do much beyond sitting in front of the TV and dozing, then another week gradually getting some strength and attention span back. All this leads up to the fact that I have had an enforced break from modelling! However, I did a bit of thinking about it and, when I was feeling up to it, I got going on making something for the tippers to tip whatever they're going to be tipping into.

While the camera was in position the Eckerslyke clan posed for a group photo. L-R Willie with Gnot-a-Gnat, Didi with Wot the Deutz, Woody with Ernieplex and Azzi in the Welsh Critter
