Firstly - look at this ice!
Isn't it beautiful? On Lake Baikal in Russia, apparently.
It's approximately that cold here...
Well, today's been way warmer, actually. I mean, started out freezing, but the sun came out - along with some odd, and very beautiful, snow showers... which was slightly weird. Felt more like blossom falling than snowflakes.
We dragged Mycroft away from his books and laptop and went to Kew for a wander. Lovely snowdrops there. Did us all good to get out in the fresh air, I'm sure.
Coughing is seriously boring. I am SO over it (as Carla would say.) Have achey stomach, chest, and now a headache, just to top it off. All from excessive and undoubtedly very annoying coughing. Sherlock experimented on me earlier, and found out that if I tip my head back my cough gets much more 'chesty' sounding and more like a seal barking. I'm assuming it's something to do with opening the airways or something. Who knows? (The man beside me on the sofa probably, actually...)
Anyway, other news...Tomorrow afternoon, once everyone is home, packed, and ready, we are going away. Back Monday night. Most of my plans are coming together...fingers crossed.
Art class today was fun. We painted eggs with ink. I did my very very best not to giggle when John was getting help with his blowing technique...(eggs, I assure you!) As he was told, with much seriousness, just to 'keep going gently until the liquid starts coming out the end...then a few more puffs and it will all spurt out'. I had a laughing...I mean coughing! fit... Yes.
Then Sherlock painted me with ink, because painting himself was too awkward.
