So, I guess I should have read some of this earlier.
On holiday with the family, got bored with all the beach stuff, so went off mountain biking. I had just cycled around the island of Spetses in the Peloponnes (Greece), when I jumped the bike off the ferry ramp having got back to the mainland, and thump the pedal came back and whacked my shin. I manfully said nowt, watched it bleed and thought all's well, that'll wash the nasties out.
Wrong. Three days later I limped into a Greek doctors surgery with a swollen leg and was given antibotics. Still on them now I am back in the UK, and now have a week off work to look forward to - bored already
Naturally, there is nothing wrong with my immune system (apart from being high mileage
), I blame those horrible Greek nasties
