Our lives are defined by the choices we make and the choices which are made for us. On Monday evening, I made the choice to ignore the sell by date on a packet of nuts I found in a cupboard in my mother's house and give them a quick roast to put on a salad.
That turned out to be a mistake.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, I was struck down by a severe bout of food poisoning. My wife followed a couple of hours later. Thankfully, my elderly mother had wisely chosen to forgo the mixed nuts, and was completely unaffected. Having eaten the most of the nuts, I suffered the worst and spent two days in bed recovering. My wife was already much better yesterday, for which I am eternally grateful. The good news is that we now both feel pretty much back to normal.
What does all this have to do with MotoGP, you ask? Well, I had set aside Tuesday to finish the 2022 season so far/Silverstone preview, and post a couple of other items. That proved to be simply impossible, so I find myself at least two days behind schedule (in addition to the days I always feel I am missing). I will also not be heading to Silverstone today, Thursday, as I normally would for a race, but will wait until tomorrow, Friday, just to be certain. Fortunately, I have the assistance of a fine group of journalists with whom I collaborate.
I hope to have a post up later today condensing the season so far, as well as a wrap up from anything we learned today.
My apologies for a lack of updates, and or a lack of content. But I hope to get things back on track now.
