Readers, I am crook.
I had a cold, then I got sinusitis. I have been laid a bit low all weekend. I have been getting a few bouts this year.
Luckily though, I have a friend/colleague on facey who is an allergist, who I messaged and she got back to me with some advice. Perk of the job.
While laid low, I have taken the opportunity to binge-watch House of
Cards. Glass half full. That Underwood couple just keep getting more
Hope it gets better soon - I have a busy week upcoming...
I have to get a lot of stuff ready before I jet off for a couple of weeks - London, Valencia, Istanbul.
Have to get the work things in order and handed over.
I have a conference on Wednesday and Thursday, at which I am speaking...I am feeling a bit stressed about it.
What if I get heckled ? What if people don't come to my talk? Gah!
(Though on saying/typing things out loud, that sounds a bit ridiculous.) Though I know the chair of the session well, and will give prior instructions on how to deal with a particular person who Might be there... forewarned is forearmed etc.
Then on Friday - madly tying up loose ends, packing, and making my way off at an ungodly hour on Saturday morning. I am really looking forward to it.
We have to leave the woofy in a boarding Kennel. I hope she is ok. She is still a bit timid around most other Hoomins.
Apologies for the Lacklustre check in, I will hopefully more than make up for it on and after my travels. Check me out on Instagram, I should have a good feed happening there!
Thankyou for your feedback re the word verification - I won't go there. Hopefully the spam will wind up in the spam filter rather than in my email inbox soon. And Welcome to the new commenters! I appreciate your lovely comments x
Now, I will turn the discussion over to you.
Any recommendations for London? Valencia? Istanbul? I think I'd like to go to a Hammam.
Any annoying (but non life-threatening) health issues? Debrief here!
What's your favourite telly show at the moment? Do you watch House of Cards?
