I’m drinking too much tea. Why am I drinking so much tea? Perhaps I have a deficiency in something that tea has lots of. But I’ve never in my life managed to drink so many cups of tea in one day. Last week, when I had a bit of a throat, I couldn’t touch tea because it scratches on its way down. I was on coffee last week, weak, milky, sugary coffee. This week I’m thinking of taking out shares in a tea plantation …
My dad called me last night and asked if the cashpoint had given me my money back. I hadn’t checked yesterday, so off I tootled to have a look and yes, there it was. It took them 4 days and it could have been very inconvenient for me had it taken the full £300 and not let me have any more, especially if it had been my last £300 too. But at least I have it back now and the machine didn’t diddle me.
I finished the last of the annuals last night and I think that will be it for at least a few months. The books are seasonal but I think there’s something going on back at base anyway, so I don’t expect to see much more before the autumn.
I’m proofing another history book now, one on the Romans in Gaul. It’s a short book so it should only take a couple of days. Today is also a study day. Tonight I have my local Ramblers’ meeting to go to. I have a lot to tell them following the area meeting on Monday night.
