On The Mend

Noon is as good a time as any to finally rouse oneself from bed, yes? After calling in sick today I spent the rest of the morning dozing, reading my book and flicking through the latest Vogue Knitting magazine in bed. (Ok, not everyone's idea of a good time, but I'm sure there's a bunch of you can relate.) Huh, twenty years ago I would have been buying Honcho or Inches magazines with the glee I now buy knitting magazines, it's a crazy world we live in.

A cup of tea and some wholegrain toast with imported French apricot jam, and the world looks much nicer. I actually feel quite a bit better today, even though my head feels a bit stuffier, probably because the low grade fever and sore throat has gone.

Anyhoo, sick talk blah blah.

The other benefit of being sick today is that I don't have to invent some bogus excuse to cut out of work early. So that I can hie along to the book signing organised by Kris (aka web-goddess) at her work, the yarn and needlecraft store Tapestry Craft this afternoon. Knit guru Nicky Epstein will be in the house!

That's a good enough reason to get out of bed.

sorry you missed out on the strippers, baby, but you know - amatuers. I'm sure none of them were as tasty as the seafood you posted below.

a cup of tea is my pancea for all ills.

And at least one of us is glad you had the day off because that enabled me to meet you at the book thingy.

Likewise! It was nice to meet you too!

Honest to God: I read that as "some whoregrain toast" and wondered immediately where one might purchase such bread.
