So instead I just do something else, where that something else is something I enjoy quite a lot. And I continue doing that till the block has lifted (it doesn't take too long!).(less)

I’m on holiday this week, though we returned from our road trip a couple of days early, each of us plagued by some variation of a wicked head and/or chest cold. The upside is that I can tell you about anawesome book giveaway, and also I can take way more naps and drink way more tea than I could if we were away from home.
