At the moment, I am enjoying simply doing nothing. I feel pretty intellectually exhausted, and I'd like to properly recouperate before Honours next year. So I'm taking this week and next week as time to simply kill in the laziest way possible. Then on Friday, I head into hospital. I'm having an operation done to fix some nasal and sinus issues - the short version is that my right nostril is crushing the left and the entrance to the sinus passages is also considerably blocked. I will then apparently be out of action for the week afterwards, and the doctor's pretty much told me that I should aim to rest until Christmas. So it should be a pretty slow month ahead of me. Since I won't be able to fly, I'll travel by train to see the family in Queensland over Christmas/New Year. I doubt anybody will be surprised when I say I think this is a fantastic idea anyway.
I did have more to say, but I'm feeling rather tired, so I'll turn in for the night instead.
