Yesterday was a lot of fun, and I was very pleasantly surprised not to wake up with a bit of a hangover this morning. Still, today is a scorcher, and so it was always going to be about lazing around the pool, watching the football and getting into my new Randall Munroe book.

There are copious leftovers (a fact which has definitely not escaped the beagle), there is some very good red wine on its delicious second day, and there is some very cold beer in the fridge.

Oh, and the footy runs from 2:30 til midnight. So why not allow myself to indulge a little?

P.S. The boy is still slowly improving. Thanks for your messages of concern.
