Critters.

I have critters living in my ceiling. Or at least using it as a thoroughfare. Foo has noticed them as well but like me she just stares up from the bed and wonders. I will need to push someone else up there to have a look.

This week.

I am staying in until Friday unless I feel much, much better or the house catches on fire (which seems unlikely).

Heavens.

I feel quite cheerful now!

I think I'm sick. As in, the normal kind of sick - I've either eaten something off or picked up a gastro bug. I couldn't face dinner last night, just kind of snacked and then regretted it.

Suspect it started the night before last, when dinner was some homedelivered chicken curry I froze a couple of months ago.

~~~

Of course, it always begs the question of what a sick person does when they get sick.

Today, I have very quickly conceded that I am on the couch until and unless there's a compelling reason not to be. And that if I run out of hydralyte icy poles or dry biscuitson , I shall call Big Sister for help. And that I won't be spending the day trying to chivvy myself into some sort of activity.

At the moment, I need to concede that if I go out on one day, I cannot go out on the next. Especially not if it involves being outdoors in this sort of weather (today it's really windy, which is one of two outdoorsy no-nos for me, the other being heat).

So here I am conceding.

Gracefully.

Honest. Totally gracefully with no rancour whatsoever.

So according to tonight's lecture, the Sphinx was not described as a sphinx, let alone The Sphinx, until about 2000 years after its construction.

And that was because it looked like the creature from Greek mythology that was around at the time (not so much as whooo-ancient-mythology but as current belief, although current belief about stuff that happened before).

So it has nothing to do with riddles. Not a thing.

Now that I've sorted my fishtanks according to temperature preference, I have a tank of introverts, and a tank of extroverts.

The coldwater ones are brightly coloured and forever bouncing around cheerfully yelling that the water's great once you're in.

The tropicals are sorts that like hiding and/or sitting still for long enough that I keep thinking they might be dead. And a couple of them would be hugging the heater if only fish had arms. (Tropical, but okay with coldwater? I don't think so!)

I think it's time I started paying attention to cooking and eating properly again.

There have been too many biscuit and cheese days lately.

So last night, in honour of a dear friend's birthday, I had my first ever degustation dinner at a fancy pants restaurant in town.

And it was good, oh yes.

I only want to eat degustation dinners from now on.

In other news, I am finally accepting that I seem to be going through a pain phase. It started up a week or two ago. Basically which ever part of my body has seen use on a particular day - it will be sore. My hands, arms and shoulders are particularly rubbish (the old pain that used to be called RSI back in the 80s, even though that diagnosis never made sense, has returned.) Oh and more headaches. Everything's still manageable with codeine, touchwood.

I am not even thinking about knitting although obviously I am typing still. But with lots of stretching and resting. But it will pass.

~~~

My ex has informed me that he has the piece of paper that will lower the divorce fee, so that's excellent news.

~~~

I might be achey and exhausted but it's a Sunday, there's blues on the radio and the sun is shining.

I'm still musing on last night's splendid dinner and I'm drinking coffee.
