I suppose I could complain about how today's breakfast was interupted by a phone call and how this meant I had a hard boiled egg, not my beloved daily soft boiled egg.

The soft-boiled egg is a part of my daily routine that brings me a frightening amount of happiness.

I could even be bitter and go on about it relentlessly to whoever will stand still long enough to hear me. I'm still in my jarmies and I'm wearing my terrific new old-man-style dressinggown, which is the perfect outfit for standing at the front gate and stopping passers-by with my entirely legitimate concerns about the effect of modern forms of communication on the simple pleasures of life. So I'm all set up for a bit of disconcerting nuttery and let's face it, it's a lot of fun watching people feeling obliged to be polite and act like they have a clue what you're talking about.

However, I won't.

I won't because the call was from the good and beneficent IBD nurse, giving me the appointment times for my first three infusions of infliximab and follow up appointment, about which I'd been feeling a tad impatient.

Bless her and all who spring from her! May daisies and violets sprout from her footsteps, may songbirds sing for her where'er she goes, and make nests for their young from her long luscious hair.

I eat my hard boiled egg with loving gratitude.

Next I shall go outside and hug people. Won't that be nice?




I have to be there at nine o'clock in the morning...? Oh jeez.

Cheers & best wishes and all that for the infliximab.

I don't know which I want to see more, Splodge being a crusty old codger, or Splodge giving random hugs to passers-by *boggles*

And I hope all future eggs are appropriately soft-boiled.

this is marvellous news indeed, if the blessings you rain down on the IBD nurse are any indication. huzzah for you.
