*Ding* Washing's finished...

Good news, everyone! My Mother 3 Handbook is nearly ready to ship! That's more exclamation marks than I've ever used in a post before (probably). Unfortunately it'll be shipping to the family home, so I'll have to make a trip back there sometime soon. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that it takes a while to get there and back and it's in the opposite direction to my wonderful girl. The thought of being further away from her isn't a pleasant one (even though there isn't a difference in practical terms).

Oh, yes... Happy St. Pat's Day! Let's get Irish (i.e. talk about our Irish ancestry and drink Guinness)! And in my case, I'm bringing out the green nail polish.

Wow. Too many exclamation marks. I feel dizzy. Although it could just be the strange, Chinese medicine that my friend just gave me. That's the "benefit" of living in an international college; you get eighteen different remedies from ten different cultures, no matter what ails you.

This time it was something sweet in my drink and a big, saffron-coloured tablet. Ah, well. If they aren't really helping, then the placebo effect has really kicked in. All I'm left with is a bothersome cough. My throat feels a little better (still keeping up the cough drops) and my stomach has moved into line. In general terms, I'm secreting a lot less.

Well, my laundry is done. Time to fold it, I suppose.

Missing you,



  1. Oh, goodness.
    Get better soon okay?
    For cough you need to have that terrific black sticky liquid with the lovely name of King To Nin Jo Pei Par Kor. Any good Chinese person should be able to point you toward some. Also Strepsils and hot honey lemon and lots of water and lots of sleep.
