Welcome to 2010

Not eating today. I'm feeling ill - both ends affected. Most unpleasant. We had an awesome new year's party round at friends last night, but although a reasonable amount of booze was consumer, it wasn't anywhere enough to explain my symptoms. Must be microbial.

So no food, and no wine. Just a bit of coke to drink, because I remember hearing somewhere that in the absence of rehydration therapy, coke works quite well because of its high sugar content. Could be wrong about that.

I've been incredibly lazy and spent the first part of the day in bed. I arose to rig up my laptop to the TV so we could watch both parts of Dr Who back-to-back en famille; the first part on the wonderful BBC iPlayer, and the second on TV.

Good news: after a disastrous few days of the holidays, our boys have behaved quite nicely. They started out killing each other and then trying to kill us. Now their worst is to be profane, sullen and angry, without physical threat! This is progress. They've been angel-like today.

Hope you get well soon Jamie---suspect your illness was caused by too much charlie over the holidays

......or too much Stilton. That thing must weigh 3 or 4 kilos, at least! Microbe city!

I always appreciate it when you give snippets about how tricky it can be in bringing up children. It reminds me that life isn't a bed of roses (which it often is, online). Having the guts not only to adopt but also to write honestly about the challnges and rewards gives added depth to what you say about wine too.
