I work in an air-conditioned office and broadcast my radio show from a ‘cocoon’ of piped air, for want of a better word.
My car is also air-conditioned but, with the lovely spring sunshine we’re enjoying at the moment, it seems a shame to drive about with the windows shut like so many of us do.
So I’ve been making an effort to lower the windows on the way to work and let all that lovely air in.
Until Tuesday, that is. A sneezing fit in Stubbington soon brought that idea to an end.
It was my first hay fever attack of 2013. I’d forgotten all about this risk.
Back to my sealed existence then, if only for a couple of months.
