Let's see: sore throat, runny nose, grit-filled eyes -- yup, I've got a head cold. Bleuggghh.

Consulted my GP again yesterday; apparently, I shouldn't expect the continued numbness to ease off any time soon, although ease off, it will, she said -- I just have to give it time. Meanwhile, I've got weeks of stumbling and literally tripping myself up to look forward to. Not happy at the prospect, but what can you do? Still, I suppose this means that I should be able to get back in heels some time before Christmas, and so won't have to donate them to the Salvation Army after all. Something to smile about, at least ;-).

Must make arrangements for my nephew to take care of my cats while I'm away...but do I declare my computer off-limits to him, or...? He's already messed up my Mum's with his games and chat sessions. Maybe I should make a back-up of my system, just in case. How does one go about doing that, by the way? (Yes, I know I work for a computer company, but we've got IT people taking care of our systems there).

Watched my director's cut special edition of Amadeus today. Was pleasantly surprised to note that the version that made it into the cinemas at the time was actually much better with those 4 or 5 restored scenes taken out: they hold up the story and really don't add anything of great dramatic value to it. Will be ff-ing through those scenes next time I view it.

Think I'll make myself a hot cocoa and go to bed in a vain attempt to fight off this cold...Oh, and I got two cards in the post, both from db2305. The reason she sent them was obvious: they both had a picture of shoes on them! BTW, did I mention I bought a new pair yesterday?

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks. Colds are a nuisance, but luckily they never last for more than a few days at most. I should be feeling better again in no time! ;-)

True - if you get through the first day or so it's usually uphill from there.

Perhaps you should hide a vital component (cable or monitor). Or set a password to potect it (not that I can remember how, bet I remember it's quite easy.

Sneaky! But it might just work...hmmm. I'll look into it.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling your best. Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks. I'm sure I will.

Feel better soon!

Lots of lemon squash and chicken soup, should do the trick! Thanks.

Sooo relieved about the heels news! When you can walk again, we should arrange a meet-up...

I'd like that! Only I'm starting back at work from tomorrow, have family obligations next weekend, and am leaving for Coventry and the Midlands the weekend after next, so it'll be April before we can manage it...unless you were planning to go on wintersport vacation again?

Nope. not this year. And April sounds good, because I have courses, weddings and kid-ferrying stuff to do most of my weeks and weekends until then...Oops. Second half of April, because my sis will be in NL the first half.
At least it'll be Spring by then....
Mar. 12th, 2006 11:45 am (UTC)
Latter half of April? That work out brilliantly for me, too! Who knows, we might even get the chance to sit out in the garden with a pot of tea and biccies! ;-)
