A Day In Bed
I am feeling poorly today. I'm a great believer in the curative powers of a Day In Bed. For the Day In Bed to operate effectively, the weather outside the room should be pleasant and sunny, clearly visible through the window, but any temptation to emerge from the bed and enter the outside world must be strenouously resisted.
The following activities ONLY are permissible: listening to the radio; a short nap (no longer than 45 minutes in duration); consumption of tea (may contain sugar, to impart strength to the feeble sufferer) and light snacks; reading.
Fortunately I have just acquired a new book which is assisting me immeasurably in the healing process.
UPDATE: Well, I finished Clara. And it's fabulous. I laughed and I cried, and I found more than a little of my younger self in Clara's struggles. An absolute treat.
