Day 4 of not smoking…

Still arsey from the Champix. Not as bad as last week, though. I’m not having a strop over the smallest things, now. (Like an ill-fitting tee shirt – goddamned American sizing!). Still waking up every two hours, not getting any quality sleep. Stomach in constant variants of unease. Headaches, mood swings. But do NOT want a cigarette! Huzzah!

As a treat I’ve bought myself some books (St Anne’s Hospice, Newport- 3 paperbacks for a pound FOR A POUND!), seem to have gained a predilection for spy novels. Am reading/loving “Contact Zero” by David Wolstencroft, creator of “Spooks” (N.B. at time of publishing have actually finished book now, it’s awesome, go and get it). Also bought Robert Ludlum’s “The Bourne Supremacy” (I do have a fondness for the films) and something called “Extraordinary Powers” by Joseph Finder. Will keep you informed.


Jumper, jeans and flip-flops?

And someone said I was crazy for wearing a jumper with shorts!

N.B. My legs are furry enough to constitute winter-wear.


Things I received today.

  • Lunch from a friend.
  • A silver-plated bookmark with a carved wolf on the end (belated birthday present from same friend).
  • ‘the eye’ from a fit semi-hipster guy. It’s okay, he wasn’t too hipster to be discounted.
  • A CD about god in many different languages, as yet unlistened to.
  • Nytol.

What I’m gushing over…

  • Having finished 19th Century Lit essay.
  • reading Flowers for Algernon.
  • researching the Wild Hunt.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow as Holly Holiday.
  • Easy A
Things I am not gushing over:
  • Presentations! SO MANY PRESEnTATIONS. Why?
  • Reflecting. I am so done with reflecting.
