I awoke at 3am desperate for a cup of tea and then couldn't be assed to reclaim half the duvet from Missus, so have been awake ever since! This is not good for body maintenance, particularly the immune system, so I will attempt to pay off some sleep-debt this afternoon.
Apart from insomnia, all is well in the Blonder house, and today will be a good day to simply be.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Life is best lived by being bold and daring. People tend to grow fearful
when they taste failure, face a daunting challenge or fall ill. Yet
that is precisely the time to become even bolder. Those who are victors
at heart are the greatest of all champions.
