Christmas Friday

It's Christmas Friday, so I thought I'd wish both my readers a Merry Christmas. (Though if I may be allowed to winge, I've woken up with asthma and a cough today - grah!) Anne and I are working until 1pm, then we're off to Lincoln to spend Christmas with Anne's mum and sisters. After that, it's off to Welwyn to see my lot.

We intend to eat and drink until our bellies are content.

Have fun.

This site was hacked yesterday and replaced with a glib message informing visitors the site had been hacked. Anne was worried we may have lost everything, but it seems only the index page was replaced, and it was on Blogger's database anyway.

It was quite exciting being hacked. Now I will hunt those responsible down...

I'm a lazy sod

I've had almost three complaints that I've not updated the blog for a few weeks. I have some photos to post, but can't seem to get round to it, not least because my hard drive died on me two weeks ago and I've been trying to recover data and get a working system since then. (My PC's always breaking! Anyone would think my cack-handedness has something to do with it. Anyone would be wrong.)

That's all (fingers crossed) fixed now, so I can get back to the blog. Photos will go up in time, but today (my 30th birthday!) I'll just post a quick note on something odd that happened this morning.

I noticed this morning I have a small rash on my left wrist. Nothing bad, but in order to stop it getting worse I decided I'd wear my watch on my right wrist today. It felt odd wearing my watch on the wrong wrist. It got a lot worse when I drove to work. It felt like I was driving on the wrong side of the car and road, like when I've had a hire car in foreign countries. I couldn't believe how wearing my watch on a different wrist was affecting me so much! I'm finding it hard to type properly at the moment too, as I keep confusing my left and right.

I'm sure there's some interesting neurology going on here, but I'll limit my contribution to superficial anecdotal evidence.
