eliphas, napping

Coming up for air, coughing

Mid-February to early March is always one of the busiest times of the year for me. There are two birthdays -- Gwydion's and mine -- with the mandatory large party where we meet some people we see only once a year, and there's International Women's Day, where my choir is usually performing at some place or the other, with a quite ambitious program.

It is, however, also the time where I have some vacation left over from the previous year which needs to be spent before it gets stale, which balances things.

Not so this year -- one of my projects was finishing, another starting, and both would have kept me busy even without the heaps of papers that needed to be written and reviewed. So a week of vacation was out of the question.

And the moment everything was done and normality should have returned, I came down with one of my usual knock-me-out-for-a-week colds.
