It appears there’s been a growing sense of unrest in recent weeks as I have been unusually quiet on social media, and inevitably, rumours have begun to circulate… Have I joined a mysterious hermit cult and sworn to live the rest of my days in isolation? Have I taken the rock ’n’ roll lifestyle a step too far and been forced to book myself into rehab? Am I pregnant!?

The answer to all these questions is “NO.” The real reason I’ve been quiet is that I’ve had a particularly virulent strain of man flu, which then gradually mutated into a horrendous, nine-headed, sharp-fanged beast of a cough, which I haven’t been able to slay even after seeing a doctor and trying every form of medicine and herbal remedy under the sun.

That didn’t stop me, however, from attending a Manchester United and Chevrolet event at Google HQ last week! As well as being linked up to a live feed Google Hangout with Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera, I also got to meet one of my childhood heroes, Dwight Yorke (legend).

I have no doubt that experience has sped up my recovery and I’m now ready to continue my plan for world domination!

As a final (somewhat unrelated) note, being stuck in bed with man flu has allowed me to start watching Game of Thrones – I’m not sure how I lived without it before. I guess every cloud does have a silver – or in this case, Valyrian steel – lining!
