Got my 'roids - doctor tells me I 'only' have to take 4 a day, on top of the antihistamines. Then if I'm not better in a week I'll have to see a dermatologist for tests to work out all the potentially good stuff I'm allergic to. This doesn't sound like fun.

Measured the length my zip needed to be in centimetres. The sewing shop had the zip lengths listed in inches. I'm sure that's illegal under EU law and if it isn't, it should be.

Whip out your phone calculator:

[cm] divided by 2.5 = [inches]

Still silly to have imperial measurements, especially with bigger things, hence the train thing and various other big miscalculations. Also the fact that it's 2.54cm is a pain

Had another awkward encounter with douchebag cashier at the local Co-op. One of those ones who insincerely asks you "how you doin' buddy you alright?" and then you mutter something along the lines of "yeah I'm alright" because you know he doesn't care and/or is sizing you up and you hadn't thought of the answer anyway.

Leisure camping (as in nothing morris related) for the first time in years, in Cambridge. So of course, it's raining. Looks like the waterproofing's done fine in the bedroom part of the canvas trailer tent, but the awning... And the internet's a crawling 3G.

Woke up this morning with giant Lesley Ash lips. Went to A&E but now they've gone back down I kind of miss them - I was hoping they might have just finally caught up with the rest of my face.
