I think the only thing in my favor is that I’m home sick. pao has redoubled efforts by also being sick with never-ending migraine since Wednesday afternoon. I have had a couple of walks round the village but have mainly been a pet entertainment centre when awake or warmer when asleep.
Oh, and Phoebe? She forgave us the moment we arrived home but smothering us with affection and has been burrowed under the spare quilt for quite some time.
