Ooh- er JM. Hot bath or ice? --Slugsta, that looks great - fingers crossed. Ann - fingers crossed for MiL's move. (You can get those deep frames with window doors that hold both photos and small trinkets, if that's any good?) Amy, hope you are okay -- OH being under strain just adds to your own. Sending every good vibe. Spamar, I have so many must-read books piling up, like you - I'm now deeply into the Spanish course: really enjoying it as it's gone beyond the basic daily stuff and we're into literature and literary criticism. I can't say my speaking is good, and just when I think I'm getting better at listening an Argentinian accent pops up to confound me. (I think a bit like an English learner listening to a Geordie.) But the reading is fab - involving a bit of history, some modern novel extracts and some food culture at the moment. Grace, hope you are mending and out-laws not being too pesky!
