I've been in bed, ill, for the last day and a half. What has struck me the most in this time is the adverts that are put out during daytime TV programmes. In just one advert break yesterday I saw advertised two different constipation remedies (one of them twice), ear drops, special care bathrooms and contact lenses. And I thought I was ill? I'm obviously a lot better off than most people who watch this stuff!
