One of my favourite places...

...is Selfridges Food Hall. Just wandering around of a lunch time you see such a wonderful collection of foodstuffs and ingredients from all over the world. And a friend of mine is deputy buyer (mwah hah hah!). Which meant I was able to get what I wanted for Mary's birthday present even though they had nearly sold out...

And now there's an Eat in it too, which means I can get really nice soup for my lunch. Today's bold was a lovely thick spicy goulash, which I washed down with some apple and ginger. As you can tell I'm working on wiping out a spring cold that's crept up on me over the last couple of days. So the desk is covered in vitamin c and zinc lozenges, echinacea drops and Lemsip capsules - oh, and the Olbas oil and the armotherapy cough cure for my chest. I think I must be rattling.

We love our little darling moggies...

...even when they are ill and have, err, accidents. At least the hall is very clean now.

I can't really blame Pebbles. She has a rare autonomic nervous system disorder which occasionally flares up - usually once every three months or so. A few days of antibiotics and she's on her paws again, but she's a sad sight when she's feeling sorry for herself - especially as she's such a tart when she's feeling at her best. Unfortunately today is one of her bad days, so we'll just keep an eye on her after taking her to the vet this evening...

I guess if this cold was better I'd be feeling a little more happy about things...
