I know, I know, I'm a day late with the blog this week. I shall attribute the tardiness to my general level of snot-production this last week, which was prolific, and it is very hard to type and blow at the same time. As it is the screen of my laptop is ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// and the keyboard has got ///////////////////////////////// with ///////////////////all over the Y key. (This sentence has been edited for those among you whose stomachs may be a little less sturdy than average. Suffice it to say that it is quite disgusting, and, should your imagination not be equal to the task, you really don't need to know).
Anyway. I'm here now. So, what can I tell you? This week is half-term, and I shall mostly be found sealed hermetically into my room with my laptop, finding new ways to avoid writing.

And pearls. Obviously. Because I am a Lady.
Well, not so much actual pearls, for although I am a Lady I find myself struck with impecunity (it's all right, I've got an ointment), and will have to mock up a pearl necklace using Blu-Tac and some marbles, but I shall look stunning nonetheless.
In Other News, I also have to do my Tesco Shopping and assist my husband in his reorganisation of a briefcase which threatens to Overwhelm Us All. But it smells of new leather, which is curiously like the smell of fish, and oddly reassuring. I also have to finish seeing off the last remnants of The Cold, which was unlike normal colds in its manner of attack - but I think half a pint of gin should do it. And should also set me up nicely for the podcast too, although I shall do my utmost to avoid sitting on Jimmy Saville during the event.
