I have posted a whopping six times so far this year.   I am full of fail.

Ah well.  Work goes apace, I still have my job, it's not too stressfull, I'm still enjoying it for the most part.

I go into get blood drawn in a couple of weeks and then go in a week ro so later to see if if it's true that I now have diabetes.  THe possibility is VERY high.  Both parents, one grandparent, four aunts and a cousin or two.  As the doctor said "so it's not a question of 'if', it's more a question of 'when', right?"

Joy.  A fantastical birthday present for me.  And this is the birthday that puts me "over 40".  The wonderful forty-one.

To help deal with this I think I shall go book buying.  And by "book buying" I mean trolling various websites to find copies of Margot Benary-Isbert's The Wicked Enchantment and Astrid Lindgrens' Emil's Pranks and Emil in the Soup Tureen - at least that's what I think the second is called.  I need to find the hardback versions with Bjorn Berg's illustrations.  I have very many happy memoriesof those books, although I could have sworn I had a copy of them in one volume.

over 40. same as under 40 only you don't feel like you have to justify as much. It's liberating. Hopefully you can be the grand exception to the diabetic trend in your family.

Those books have fabulous titles! Wonder if they have them at the local libraries. Hmm...

Lovely to see your name crop up!
