  • Mood:

The momentary clarity of fever

Aided by St Emillion at lunch but I was incapable of holding a  thought in my head for five minutes before that because of the cold that I fought off for days and days and suddenly succumbed to on Saturday; bleurgh. Thus I didn't pack any of the parcels I meant to post, I huddled in bed doing email all morning and managed to bend my knee right out of shape (thank $DEITY for ralgex and a hot shower), I shut the front door behind me and realised I was still wearing furry slippers and after that I still managed to leave my Oystercard behind and had to buy an ordinary price expensive travelcard ;-(

At this point my main thought was 'can has do-over pliz? but I did have a lunch that was both tasty and informative (Alistair Little: v v v good). I may have been a little more outspoken in my opinions than usual (omnes: is that possible?) and the branches of the trees against the sunset sky at 3.30 were incredibly detailed and clear, catching my attention as if it was weed in water.

The plan: turn up the heating, decide between taking a duvet to the sofa and taking dinner and a notebook with the Sling player up to bed, medicate more and early night. Tomorrow I shall be receiving the new microwave (the plastic panel covering the magnetron in the one we've had for years looks melted so we decided to upgrade to one with a grill in - Peter, if you're reading this, John Lewis has a smaller selection than Argos and Currys online but the selection turns out to be A more interesting B more name brands and less low end junk and C cheaper).
