Blessed drugs

Five days off work with a cough is ridiculous. This cough is ridiculous. The entire block of flats can hear it. But the drugs are starting to work. I've actually slept the last two nights, and life is improving.

Vaughn, on the other hand, is now into week four and rapidly catching up in the coughing stakes, having lagged behind until now with mere sniffles. I'm a sharing, caring kind of gal.

Or I could get the flu. That's just as fun, right? Cough.

Happiness is a delivery from Amazon

Two cookbooks and a guide to country walks around London.

And speaking of country around London, this weekend I am cycling the South Downs Way. It runs from Winchester in the South West to Eastbourne in the South (East of Brighton). 100 miles of hills. Obviously I'm dead scared and wondering what on earth induced me to say yes when a bunch of people from work (all much fitter than I) proposed the idea. But I'm looking forward to getting out of London and seeing a bit more of the beautiful countryside not too far from here.

Oh, and you're all invited to my funeral next week. Did I mention it's 100 miles of hills? What kind of idiot does that to themselves? I'm going to die.

Friday's where it's at

Matty B had it right. Friday's where it's at. The whole weekend is in front of me; everything is possible - and a delightful weekend it's looking to be, too. A bbq tonight with everyone from our apartment block, a party tomorrow and one of my favourite people staying for the weekend, who is not only fabulous but is going to help me cook for the aforementioned party. Lovely girl.

More good news

After two decades on Channel Nine's Today, Alan Jones is being given the boot on June 15. Private Equity isn't all bad! I don't suppose CVC wants to buy 2GB too?

Doing the Right Thing

I don't often get terribly political on this soap box of (ahem) ours. And generally when I do it's to have a whinge. Not this time. This time I'm reporting some very good news, albeit a few days late. Reed Elsevier, the parent company of LexisNexis, one of the largest legal publishers, has been involved in arms fairs for a number of years, to the increasing chagrin of its customer base. It has finally withdrawn. About bloody time.

It's that cheerful time of the week

Friday. With cakes in the afternoon and Phillips Adams to entertain me, what's not to love about Fridays?
