Home alone

I read a newspaper article the other day that confirmed what many healthcare professionals have known for years – circadian rhythms rule. Research has proved (in poor little animals) that viruses contracted in the early morning lead to a more severe infection than viruses contracted later in the day. Well duh! The immune system is at it’s lowest ebb in the early hours and that’s been known for donkeys years.

And the significance of the above? K has a virus which I’m sure she contracted in the middle of the night – it’s been nasty and has mimicked Mumps; she’s got very swollen glands and looks a lot like a hamster with plenty of food stored!! Not nice at any time but especially un-nice when on holiday.

We left her to suffer alone in R0X1 and went off to Eden.

Eden camp was one of the first themed museums. Set in the original huts of a WW2 PoW camp which closed in 1948, each hut is devoted to a story. The familiar story of the rise of Naziism, the London blitz and the evacuation of city children and also (to me) the less familiar stories of bomb disposal, escape routes through Europe and year by year campaign details. Walk through a bombed street or a submarine, the exhibits are very lifelike. Fascinating stuff whatever your age.
