Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes and favourite remedies for my icky stomach. I'm a little better today, although still not up to eating solids. Look at the new icon preetybird made me - and that was before she knew I was sick.

jennylyle Don't fret so much, you worrywort. There's nothing radically wrong with me that a good talking to and taking my own advice won't cure. I was a little too optimistic about shaking off whatever floored me in Paris in time to drive all the way North. You know me and my problem with travelling on public transport, especially the metro. Usually whatever hits me goes to my chest, but not this time. In celebration of your pocketmail device, I'm buying you more months on your LJ as a Christmas present. I can teach you how to post an entry to your LJ using email in France. We have Lyle's waiting on the boat to give him in May.

totkat MWNN has given you a bum steer. I don't have a DVD burner on the laptop, it's a DVD reader/CD burner. But then I don't need a DVD burner, do I?

irishnoodles You are a sweetie and I don't want you to go to any great trouble over this next request, but could you see if you could find me a snowglobe with Mad Ludwig's castle in it. We spotted some cute Eiffle Tower ones that had sparkly blue snow in them, in Paris, but I don't want the Tower, I want the castle. Please do your research on line and don't go rushing over to the island to search the gift shop - please.

Thank you for the holiday card! :D

You're very welcome. Glad you liked it.

I was going to send a card showing the Love Wall, but as it was one of only two small items I wanted to buy, I really couldn't justify standing in a queue a mile long in Printemps with only one cash desk operating and MWNNgasping to go out for a smoke.

As someone who bought a blue vase because of a short Tanith Lee story called 'Blue Vase of Ghosts' and a ceramic camel to call Youbastard, I perfectly understand the need for the snowglobe. ;)

I don't particularly like snowglobes but the French ones were so pretty and sparkly. The snow wasn't the usual blobs of polystyrene stuff. And I really do like that castle. Pity Cass has chosen a different one.

btw, has Cass told you I've booked for the St James' church concert?

And have I told you that I'd booked Belgo's? I can't remember anything I did in the past few days.

I have a Stonehenge one, but that's my limit.

::rolls eyes:: No, she didn't.

Yes, you did.

I did ask if you had a CD burner, so he was right.

Thank you for my chrissy present - I'll look forward to my lj lessons in France and Lyle too is excited to be receiving his gift in May - I wonder what it is - something boaty perhaps? - it will be like the box we sent - we will just have to wait and see!!! J.
