of obsessions

At least you don’t have to hear me read today’s post. I coughed pretty much non stop from Thursday evening until this morning. Overall I feel ok, I’m just very tired of coughing. Today has ended with reduced coughing episodes, but I’m facing a to-do list a mile and half long because I took a real sick day Thursday evening and Friday (which is really tough when you are your boss).

The upside to this was that the kitten (who may have a name, stay tuned, we’ll try it out when I can ahem.. speak) and I cuddled for pretty much the entire time. He’s now quite annoyed at me because I’m not curled up in bed with him. I told him if he wanted to keep eating good food and have lots of fun toys, I had to work. He didn’t quite believe it but eventually gave up and sought the warm blankets without me.

One thing I did re-learn was that when you are coughing so much, you really have no desire to read or do anything. Thus, only one short review for today.

Warwick definitely has a love of the hedgehog and his writing shows their influence upon him as it meanders through a tales of foraging and adventure. There were nuggets of information about our prickly friends across the pond and I was pleased that that the author attempted to shed light onto the American obsession of this new pet. However, despite nuggets of interesting information, I felt it was too scattered and superficial to really give justice to a charming mammal I first met as Mrs Tiggy-Winkle.
