I went to the docs yesterday, mostly to address the earache, and got some antibiotic eardrops, together with an anaesthetic spray for my throat.
So, yes - feeling a little better today - at least no earache, and I'm counting that as a massive WIN. My ears still feel muffled and are inclined to pop occasionally - it feels like they never got off the plane - but things are definitely moving in the right direction!
In other news, I had a lovely fangirls get together in my hometown, London with sasha_dragon and chellexxx last weekend. Because I'm an awesome friend - and a professional bad influence - I took them to Hamleys, the Rolls Royce of Toy Shops ... seven floors of fandom fun and fangirl regression! As you can imagine, we were a picture of dignity and decorum in there. I'm looking forward to catching up with them again in a few weeks at Crossroads Con.
Finally, it's been a nice week on the whole, so Mr D and I have been enjoying a few evenings sitting out in the garden after work. (You can tell I'm not firing on all cylinders - in all those evenings, I haven't fancied one single glass of wine!)
While he was out in the garden, Mr D found a sink plunger in the back of his shed.
What's a man to do when he finds a sink plunger ...?
Why, play daleks of course!!
What? Who said unblock the sink????
I mean, really...!
