... about finally getting through to the hospital today.
I left a message on Sunday, knowing they were closed but not sure when they were going to reopen. Another call yesterday and then a round of phone tag this morning and we've finally been able to get an appointment scheduled to pick up the first lot of drugs we need.
I didn't realise just how wound up the uncertainty was making me until I got off the phone and went to tell my manager which day I needed off. It really was like a weight had been lifted from me. I'm feeling very relaxed right now.
... my main Christmas present from Mr Click, the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Sadly it's not the most portable of books. It's huge and I can only wonder how big the later books are going to be. Massive if my illustrated Lord of the Rings is anything to go by! But there's something very comforting about sitting up in bed and reading it at night.
Plus there's so much to see in the pictures. It's like every time I look at a page, I notice something I didn't see before in the image. It's beautiful.
... 24 and The Muppet Show.
Not both at the same time, obviously.
A friend at work came over to me a couple of months ago and asked if I'd seen 24. When I told him no, he showed up at my desk a few hours later with the complete box set of it and told me I had to watch it.
So far we're into the second episode and I'm kind of reminded of Spooks and Die Hard but I'm enjoying it. I'm planning on us marathoning it to get through it as quickly as possible. It's kind of funny how dated it looks. As soon as it started I commented to Mr Click that you could tell it was early 2000s; I couldn't tell you exactly what the early-2000s look was, but the people in this series have it!
We still have another series of Criminal Minds to watch but I'm wanting something a bit lighter during treatment; clearly terrorists is easier viewing than serial killers.
To help balance it out we're watching The Muppet Show on DVD before bed. We've watched most of the first series before but it's really easy bedtime viewing and I'm sure we've missed a few episodes in the past.
Are you watching anything new (or new to you)?
