|I visited my friendly doctor this morning to get an official diagnosis of my most recent digital complaint – what I’ve variously construed as yarn allergy and gout. His analysis was engelures or as readers of Charles Dickens would have it: chilblains. With this recent cold snap, he said there’s been a lot of it about. I was rather relieved that it wasn’t a dietary issue and that lamb shoulder roasts and cauliflower soup weren’t going to be excised from the menu. |
The cold has also made Munson’s snow nose more pronounced but there’s nothing to worry about there unless Santa commandeers him for sleigh-pulling duties.
