Monday. Let's do this thing

It's been raining most of the weekend. Not like the rain that other parts of Australia have had this week, but good, solid, sit on the couch and watch old episodes of West Wing kind of weather. Which really, is probably my favourite kind. I was sick last week, a few days laid under with a cold of some sort, that seemed to involve a lot of sneezing and snot and a stupid bone tiredness, and I think I'm still recovering. Or something.
