As you may have guessed from the header; I’ve got ‘flu. I suppose I should be grateful that it’s struck now rather than over Christmas, but I’m missing the last full week of school, meaning I feel guilty as well as ill.
So what, I hear you ask, has the ‘flu got to do with hedgehogs?
I’ve always liked hedgehogs: pretty, grunty, creatures that loudly trundle around my garden eating cat food I put down for them in preparation for the winter – can’t have them going into hibernation without full bellies, can I? I make sure there’s a large pile of leaves for them to curl up in safely and, ignoring the flea aspect, I think they’re really cute…
So, as I’m actually rather kind to them, why has one crawled into my sinus cavities?
