Sarah has come down with the 'flu.
This means she's pretty much confined to bed for the next few days, so she's not going to be seeing anyone much apart from her mum ('cos she's living with her) and me and my mum briefly tomorrow when we pop round (a 2 hour round trip) to deliver and pick up presents. She's not going to be fit to drive, she reckons, until at least the weekend, and she won't go to see her sister as previously planned because her sister's son is 9 months old and seeing him in her current state = not a good idea.
So basically, she's going to have a pretty rotten Christmas.
So I come bearing a request - if you feel so inclined, could you leave general "get well soon" messages in a comment to this post, and I'm going to print them out and put them in a card to give to her when I see her tomorrow. It'd be nice to let her know that people are thinking of her.
