Good - I appear to have broadband. I opened iTunes, saw it start to download podcasts and thought "That'll take a while on dialup"... then realised I hadn't dialed in yet. So I'm wired again.

Also good - Hot bath => Not Feeling Ill (but see below)

Another good - The Streetcar system seems to work perfectly; book online (password and 2 clicks), wander over to the car (about 15 mins walk from here), touch the card to the car's reader, open doors, remove ignition key from glovebox and drive off. (PS: if you join up let me know, I get free miles). Good cars too (new VW golfs) which run well.

Bad - London traffic, drivers and lane markings. Takes a good hour to get to Ikea Croydon (but a bit less on the way back)

Good - Getting through Ikea and getting the furniture I want in under 30 minutes. Plus the fact I'd erred on the side of caution with the car booking times.

Bad - carrying said furniture up the stairs to the flat

Bad - Google's map back to the car's parking spot runs you right through a dead end. Inventive navigation required...

Bad - far too hot in Tesco; I overheated and got ill again.

Good - picked up a cheap rug in Allied Carpets at the end of the road.

Bad - now feel crap, shaky, feverish again; dosing on Lemsip. I won't be going to K's tonight I think; I don't want to share this.

AARGH! This is NOT what you do when you're sick! You're supposed to TAKE IT EASY and lugging crap from Ikea up the stairs of your apartment! Jesus! I can't understand why you fight it when people feel the need to take care of you when you clearly don't have the sense to properly take care of yourself! Now can you please spend tomorrow at home?

Poor thing - hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself.

Croydon Ikea is good, isn't it?

No queues at the tills... downright bizarre!

It's open really late as well, like til about midnight, so you don't have to go on the weekend when it's busy. Or you can just go to satisfy a late-night meatball craving!

Bit of a long way for me to go for meatballs - didn't get any on Saturday either as I was in a rush :(
