Recuperating ...

Another day of generally attempting to get well for the weekend today. Cancelled golf this morning and I haven't been into Godalming to get any shopping - plan to try to see if I'm up to it tomorrow morning.

That said, I do feel a bit stronger - and actually I haven't been as fiercely ill as I usually am, so that's a blessing beyond my expectations. Plus I've actually been able to sleep so quadruple huzzahs all round! Funny though how I still feel like a squeezed-out sponge - or hell maybe that is just me?...

Anyway, I've done no writing today - apart from the blog of course - so am feeling rather guilty and might do some later. Though, heck, a couple of days off never hurt anyone. And I'm sure Paul & Craig are enjoying it down in Devon. Hope the weather holds for them. Writerly note: hmm, must mention the weather.

Instead I've watched an episode of the always adorable "Lewis" on DVD (please God let them make another series - please please please ...), napped for another two hours, had a spot of lunch and finished my latest Harlan Coben book, Promise Me. Which was the usual page-turning stuff and you can't put it down until you know what happens. Plus the humour and dialogue are great. But I must say I am getting rather wearied of Win - the psycho "deus ex machina" who always gets Myron out of his scrapes. It's getting a wee bit predictable now - isn't Myron adult enough to solve his own problems, rather than always (sigh ...) calling in the evil Superman??... Also, I thought the ending was rather contrived though I do admit the twist was nicely done. Being me, I would have preferred it if the innocent teenager had been the arch-criminal - now that would really have been wonderful! Plus she could have gone off with the wretched Win and they could have lived happily ever after together - somewhere else.

I've also been amused by one of BBC's online news headlines today - "Detectives uncover a hidden Constable" - still laughing. Um, isn't it a question of just opening the staff room door??... There he is, Inspector! My, our British Bobbies are the best in the world, you know. They probably found him with the Weapons of Mass Destruction, ho ho.

Tonight, I'm going to go for the usual Friday pizza & garlic bread option, but I'm still unsure about the wine. We'll see. And I must admit to feeling more human after my nap - there's hope for me yet then.

Today's nice things:

1. Feeling a little better
2. Lewis
3. Laughing at police activities.

A couple of days off does you no harm at all. Have a rest and come back hungrier!

Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better.

True, Nik - and thanks!
