1. A bit slowly. Walking from a to b is becoming more of an effort.

George- I can't imagine how you'd get by with 2 broken arms.. I hope you're having a fantastic time on your trip!

Belle- eurgh.. the thought of a snapped Achilles' turns my stomach. Must've KILLED!

Cj-pesky brothers!

Jess-it is hard to tell if you're annoying. People don't tell you, they just roll their eyes when you're not looking.

Karen- I like your answer to number 5. I concur.

Al- yeah, I'm getting by with little sleep at the moment. getting by maybe, but 'surviving' is probably too strong a word.

Pedro- you didn't mention the little friend that used to live on the back of your leg..

Laetitia- I hope all went well last Thursday??

Maso- Yeah, no one wants incompetence under their name..

Kim- I look forward to reading your book- I'm sure it'll be great!

Ruth- I hope you've been feeling better, and that things continue to improve. Praying the next few months go well!
