Morning post

Season's greetings sent on their merry way this morning! Because I was late, and ill, and didn't want to spend too much any time picking and choosing, the theme this year is 'Naffest of the Naff' -- just so you know.

I was up early because I'd made up my mind that despite the fact that I was still feeling grotty, I was going back into work -- until I suddenly realised that I'd given the wrong date of recovery on the Arbo Services (the authority that monitors your sickness rate on behalf of your employer in The Netherlands) questionnaire I'd just posted; today's the 18th, not the 19th. Rather than proceed on my way to Utrecht and get into an administrative tangle later on, I decided it would be easier to take today off as well. I've got a mountain of ironing to be getting on with, anyway.

As I said, still feeling grotty; and the worst part is that my ears have closed. Everything sounds muffled, it's most weird -- I keep yawning and blowing my nose in hopes that they'll pop open again, but to no avail so far. I hate colds.

However, I trust coffee will make everything better.

Coffee is key. I hope you feel better soon!

Thank you.

You're on my e-card Christmas list, btw, because I stupidly threw out the envelope that your lovely card came in, that had your address on...at least, I don't suppose you're on Hanneman Drive still, are you?

No problem. E-Cards are quite lovely, too.

And no, I'm not on Hanneman anymore, although a card would get forwarded to me eventually.

Colds are rubbish. I just mainline cups of sweet tea.

Same principle. For me, cocoa works just as well if I can't get coffee, or tea when I can't get either.

Hope the coffee helped...it always makes me feel better when I have a cold.

Strong black coffee is my cure-all for all life's minor inconveniences; so thank you, yes, it did help a bit.

I did hear you, and so I can say thanks for the lovely e-card that just keeps on playing and playing and playing and playing...! Meanwhile, my address is already on its way to you via snail mail -- you should have it by January ;-)
