A big hand for my new lodger please. She's very cool and laughs a lot so is very welcome chez moi. She's got the measure of me pretty quickly and is already being cheeky to her landlady...but then I easily get my own back by teasing her for having lived in the bush for most of her life and being scared of traffic! She has passed the most basic tests- she likes Monty and mini-me likes her. All is well with the world.
Last night I had a fabulous 13.5 hours sleep which was long overdue.
