Because everyone's doing it...

The journal meme:

My journal is called Helen's musings on life etc. because... Well, because that's what you get. Anything I fancy putting here really.

My default userpic is a mouse, for obvious reasons and, as I needed something quickly at the time, I found the one I use somewhere on the web. I think it's quite cute.

    Yesterday was emotionally very up and down. (Nothing serious, just minor stresses brought on by a poorly computer.) I woke to heavy rain, but…

  • Gardening and reading

    I didn't sleep well last night. I woke up at 1.30 a.m. feeling very shivery (a reaction to the flu jab I had yesterday). I then slept for a bit but…
