Urgh. I have bidden a fond farewell to cangetmad, but, adding to my sorrow at her departure, I have been stricken by a vile lurgy! Whilst in the car on the way to drop Kate at the bus stop, I got sick. Yes, I threw up. Much to my own amazement, I might add, as I had been feeling perfectly well until then. Now, however, I feel very shaky and weird, and will spend the day lying on the couch drinking tea and listening to soothing things on Radio 4.
