Operation Oysterhood: 19 January

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A gap in the night seemed inevitable. But I got up, made hot chocolate (Debbie, if you are reading this: thank you for the delicious hot chocolate!), watched some TV and eventually fell asleep again. The cheeks are still sore, but at least I managed a good swim in the evening after work and spoke briefly to Mom and Krystian over lunch.

Retail therapy also helped. I visited two of my favourite bookshops today. Love my new books!

It was also lovely to see Karavan Press books featured on the shelves of both shops. It gives me a little bit of hope for the press’s future.

Otherwise, editing – mostly – and a successful online meeting about a project I am involved in.

I am hoping that no news is good news from the ICU.

Tomorrow, I have to face the SARS-dragon. A glitch in the e-filling system does not allow my brilliant accountant to submit my documents online this year, so I am heading for the SARS queue in the morning. Pray for me.

Getting my gear ready!

I found two lucky coins today! That must be a good sign of something …

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
