 I'm having my first bad asthma attack for over six months.

I've been increasing my exercise and that's been helping, but the fog for the last few days has been really bad.

The fog traps all the air pollution and I'm very wheezy.

I've had to take a course of steroids and that means in turn that I can't sleep (awake at 3am last night trying to decipher knitting patterns)

My daughter's affected too.  Her asthma isn't too bad, but the trapped air pollution has triggered hers as well.

I'm just glad I don't live in London - According to City Hall, almost 10,000 Londoners die every year because of polluted air and the capital does not meet the legal requirements for pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide.

Those clear, bright winter days are very bad for pollution in London - you can look up and see the grey band of sky along the horizon. The rain washes things away, though...
