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.
