I have got a stupid british cold. Have had it since Thursday...was a bit fluey then...but now it's gone to the stage where I just can't sodding breathe...I'm all dry and bunged up.

Been dosed up on Lemsip mostly...but it doesn't seem to be working too well...really flipping irritating. I had to take Thursday and Friday night off work too...and miss out on overtime...something I really can't afford to do at the moment...but nobody would thank me if I went in and spread it about, would they James? *evil eye*

Ho hum. And I bet you were wondering (no, I suppose you weren't), where does she get all her free time to rattle on on her livejournal...answer: I don't. I'm just not a well girl at the moment.

*sniff*

Ok, I'll stop whining now, and post something 'interesting'...

This book scared me rigid as a child...

My sister got it from the library...

"Look, it has dogs in it!!"

So I read it, and had nightmares for years after...partic. the page where the man who has eaten the tail is in bed and the tailypo comes after him..."I want my Tailypo, I want my Tailypo!"...

...then there was a pic of the man/bed in a big flurry of cloth shreds everywhere...

*shudder*



Looking at Amazon...I see lots of people had a similar experience...

Had to do this with my real name, as I was played by a bloke otherwise...and that's simply not fitting for a woman of my standing!!

No. He's a school music teacher/church organist/home piano teacher.

My mother is also a music teacher (flute and piano).

Which is why I always hated cello practice so much...

...both my sisters play flute, clarinet, saxophone, piano etc...my middle sis is married to a drummer, and my youngest is doing a music degree...we could be the new Corrs!!!

...I think not!
