The plan to go along to the Kambar was cancelled in the end as daneel_olivaw describes, it really did look a bit desperate and we were pretty tired by that point. Had a long chat with him while we were waiting for rjk to catch us up, think it might have been useful. Was glad to get to bed, as I seem to be coming down with rjk's cold now. Distinctly blocked up and groggy. Oh well, I don't feel too miserable with it, and hopefully it won't last as long.
Today seems to so far have been spent pottering, watered some of the plants outside since it's a couple of days since there was serious rain and they are still only settling in. Might have some lunch soon and spend the afternoon with Jane Eyre. Joint birthday party this evening to look forward to, and then back to work tomorrow if I'm well enough.
