it is good to have friends who work in the hospital you are staying at. last evening i taught vjbseven how to do sudoku without writing lots of numbers in the grid, and then later drjane brought me round the first two Sandman collections and a Lenore collection, all of which i have now devoured. I should have read these sooner. Now need to get Sandman vol 3!
In meantime, A&A have sent me my ADSL router thingy, so basically as soon as I have recovered I can move to flat properly.
