Sorry I haven't been very cheerful the last few days. Yesterday I was trying to write my new book and I got slower and slower and gloomier and gloomier, until I literally could write no more, and I'm like - what's wrong with me? But then I realised I had an ear infection. happytune always says she can tell when I am getting ill because I get gloomy. So for the first time since I was a child I was in bed at New Year, though awake. I got up just after midnight and took some painkillers, and I've been mostly sleeping or resting. But I got up just now and watched the last half hour of Sherlock - seemed good from what I saw. Anyway I am glad my bad mood had a physical cause, because that will get better. No division between body and mind. I'm only really posting this to explain because I know I have been overly grumpy. Going back to bed now.
