Chris has been unwell in bed for much of the day
Sore throat and a heavy cold
I have renamed him, Violet,
Dowager, Countess of Grantham for the day!
It seems apt
His throat does look somewhat swollen
But at lunchtime he has managed to force down,
2 large pieces of gruyere cheese quiche, a side salad,
One large bowl of curry soup
And a massive slab of Christmas cake
So I suspect he'll pull through....
