Counting Down The Hours

There were a lot of fireworks last night- including some especially bangy ones just after one o'clock. Did I miss some event of national or international significance?  Did Pakistan win gold at the Winter Olympics or something?

I felt really miserable yesterday- seriously on the verge of tears.  I don't know why.  It can't have been anything deep-seated because I feel much cheerier today, even though, see above, I didn't sleep well. 

We're going on holiday soon-  to France- with Ruth- to visit Matthew at CERN.  Ailz has packed the bags, and there's nothing much left for me to do but count down the hours and make some chocolate fridge cake (my current speciality) to eat on the train.
