The sore throat turned into a sneezing, aching mess of a cold. The studio became the landing and so far I think the holiday is still on!
As I lay in my sick bed on saturday morning, gazing mournfully through the window and doorway onto the landing (sounds like a novel:-) it suddenly occurred to me that with a bit of juggling of furniture, bookshelves, etc. my upstairs landing would make a perfect studio/workplace! I crawled out of bed and started shoving stuff around.Shazam! problem solved and even more comfortable than the perfect place that turned up yesterday! Plus I don't have to go out in the rain and snow next winter:-)

I experienced the full efficiency of Amazon yesterday............they had suggested i might like to sell some books and feeling bored, sickly and lethargic I gave it a try from the comfort of an armchair. In half an hour I had emails telling me a book had sold and the money was paid and would I send it as fast as possible............plus they gave an address label and a packing slip (to print out) The book was a diet book and since I no longer feel the need to get less ample, it was no loss. What a great way to spend a rainy and poorly afternoon!

I'm reading Michael Moore now and so far, I'm interested.
Wonder why it takes half a day sometimes to publish?
