(clears throat) Is this thing on?

Hello world!

I haven't felt like blogging for ages and ages. But since it's November, month of Nablopomo, I feel inspired to give it another go.

In the interim I've been away twice (to Crieff and to Norfolk) and spent a lot of time thinking about Freedom of Information for my thesis, knitting and playing with my guinea pigs.

OK, maybe that's not very exciting. So I'm going to set a goal for November, which is to do (at least) one fun and interesting thing every week, and write about it. It may be generally interesting. It may only be interesting to me. We'll see how it works out. I'll tag the relevant entries "Thing".

This week's Thing may have to be quiet and gentle as I'm recovering from a nasty virus, but I have to start somewhere!

I was just on my NaBloPoMo page, looking at my friends list (all two of you), and wondering if you were going to post this month. Welcome back!

To answer your question: a few years ago, my doctor posited that I might be allergic to leaf mold, since I wind up with bronchitis every October. She put me on antihistamines called Allegra and gave me an inhaler.

Two years ago I moved into a house with better ventilation and that got more sunlight. Haven't had a problem since.

I'm guessing maybe you have the same allergy. I'd recommend getting it checked out. I used to love autumn, then I dreaded it, now I love it again.

Good to see you back. I have been hassling your mother about your whereabouts! :)

Well Hello! So fun to see you back, K! Can't wait to see what your things are. Hope you're feeling better from your nasty virus too!

Glad to hear I'm going to be able to read you every day for a month!

Okay, playing with your guinea pigs I get, but knitting with them? That I have to see! (Welome back, by the way!)
