It is amazing what you can find on the internets. Perhaps this is something I should consider to while away during my convalescence: Butter Sculptures. Yep, still ill, feeling so yucky today that I can’t even get out of bed but will force myself in an hour or two so I can bathe and try [...]

Well, I did expect to have a rest over the break but this is silly. I feel even worse today than I did yesterday and kept pao awake most of the night with my coughing and wheezing. Eventually I went and coughed and wheezed in the land of spare oom as I felt horribly guilty [...]
Send flowers (red ones, no lilies, they make me sneeze). I like roses and freesia and carnations. Purple if they haven’t got red, please.
