This week

Given that it’s getting close to Christmas I thought that things would slow down this week, but no. I went to see the ISIHAC tour, which was funny, although that didn’t do much for my ability to breathe. But it gave me an excuse to eat at the Noodle Bar. A lot of it was the same as the one I saw earlier in the year, but since I can’t remember the jokes after it finishes, that didn’t matter. And it had Jack Dee as chairman, who was very good. At the end they dressed Jack Dee in gold tinsel and gold tinsel-edged reindeer antlers, and gave him some jingle bells. He looked ecstatic about it.

I drove to work on Tuesday, having not driven since a week last Friday. It turns out that’s quite a long time not to drive, as I was struggling to remember how to drive. I’d happily get the bus to work more often if it wasn’t for the fact that it takes twice as long, has no heating, only goes once an hour so is useless if you have to stay late and costs more than driving. And they wonder why no one gets buses round here…

I have discovered the secret to sleeping and breathing (apart from not lying down): don’t move and give your chest plenty of room. Well, it worked last night. The trouble I’ve been having is that I keep coughing instead of breathing, which then makes my throat hurt more. I am now reaching the point where I really want to lie down and drink orange juice. I’m so sick of water and I can’t drink my milk because it’s just not that nice.
