It's three weeks since the bike accident and the collarbone's improving, but a cracked rib made itself felt after 5 days, and that's been more painful than the shoulder. Next check-up is 13 December, when I hope to see a nicely knitting clavicle on the X-ray. In the meantime, sneezing hurts! I can type OK and write OK with the right elbow supported, but the brain is taking a while to get back up to speed after being smacked down onto Edgeware Road. I don't have any trouble with insomnia, even if I nap during the day. I could sleep for Australia at the moment.
Now, people in Sydney, I don't know about elsewhere, but Galaxy Bookshop have a lovely pile of all three story collections right now, the new one and the new-covered White Time and Black Juice. Ideal Christmas gift, to self and others. If you're going to go hog-wild at Galaxy, make sure you swing by the L shelf.
