TomBlog - home

Staring at my ten twinkling toes, shoeless, sprawling on a sofa. I don't like the word 'sofa' much, 'settee' isn't really any better, 'couch' I suppose wins; but it's not much of a competition. So here I am languishing in a world of soft furnishings, home at last. 9 months and I think around 115 gigs later. I'm developing a first class head cold. The kind that makes you feel like complete shit so you call it flu in a vain attempt to get sympathy. Always the way. You finish work and the flood gates open.
I've been indulging the domestic god in me for a few days. Seems like the right thing to do after being away for so long. Repainted a couple of walls. Hung a few new pictures. Cooked lots of delicious grub. Did a lot of unnecessary tidying. Starting to get bored of it now. My wife calls it 'nesting' but I call it 'sanity'. Nice to play the guitar just for fun again. And around we go again.

Ah there's no bed (or couch) like your own.

It's always the same. The common cold virus seems to know the minute you stop moving. Most colds start on a weekend.

Enjoy your brief domesticity, and if you get bored, organise that journal of yours and ring a publisher.

enjoy your time at home, tommy (and all).
wow; i just had that same convo with someone tonight about how everyone seems to get ill immediately after filing one's butt against a grindstone of work. how odd and uncanny.
good thing you have a loving wife to nurse you back to health (and with whom you can nest). hurrah.

I think the technical term for your illness is 'man flu'. ^_^

Have you repainted over the red wine stain from the girlshapedlovedrug video!?
