...Bela went out.
I met my deadline on Friday (what did I tell you!) and came out of total hibernation yesterday. I didn't leave my postcode, but still... Most of the places I wanted to visit where closing early so I got rather frustrated, but I was pleased to see that my legs were still in working order and that the area hadn't changed too much in the meantime. I intend to venture farther in the course of this week.
I haven't been completely insulated from the news, though: guess what my position is on the 'veil' question!
I was going to slap someone, but maybe she's suffered enough. Hello, Micki!
