As you will see, I have just posted a blog I started last Wednesday. I have an unpleasant few days since last Wednesday, with pain and fatigue making it difficult for me to do anything other that lie there and stare at the wall. With more than a 5 week gap between treatments, I had forgotten what an unpleasant thing chemotherapy is.
Today I am feeling a whole lot better and am able to sit at my desk, though I still haven't started on setting up my train set.
My discomfort has coincided with a poor showing by England in the one-day cricket internationals. I have refrained from crowing over the test matches in which the Australians got a drubbing since I know that these things go-around and then come-around. Liverpool FC have replaced their manager with Kenny Dalglish, the Return of the King, they are calling it. He had a decent win on Saturday. New managers can make a huge psychological difference, but success in football matches depends on fine margins. Manchester United and Arsenal continue on their successful ways and Spurs continue in the top 5. Chelsea seem to be in trouble and must beat Bolton tonight if they are not to have lost hope. Manchester City remain a group of expensively purchased stars, but not yet a team.
We have had a spell of dry weather and some sunshine, but temperatures have remained just above freezing by day and just below at night.
Family have visited a bit, but viral infections have limited this. I am still struggling with a new 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle and with NT Wright's "Virtue Reborn". January is nearly over.
