Sort of waterlogged

The weeks have flown by again as I’ve been really busy and a few family issues have been thrown in.

 After visiting the Swedish Chef at the beginning of the month, I decided to experiment with drinking three liters of water a day. I’m still in a little pain from the bout of cystitis. All the antibiotics in the world won’t help if you don’t keep your pee as diluted as possible. The last check up I had came back with no bacteria at all. I don’t find it easy to drink large amount of water. Little and often is the secret. I also refill a half liter bottle so that it seems a little less like Mission Impossible. I'm truthfully managing between 2 and 3 liters a day.

Olivier now knows where he will be working and roughly when, but not for a few weeks yet. He’ll be replacing someone on maternity leave so it’s a short contract. At least he will have his foot in the door and will be able to put experience on his CV. By coincidence it is in the same town as the lycée that J-M is teaching in!

Dom phoned during the week, she has now driven in the snow for the first time. No snow here – just cold.

M-I-L is in hospital. She’s very weak. This month she celebrated her 91st birthday! I hope that they let her go home soon, she hates hospitals.

Hallo Anji, good to hear you are keeping up. That water drinking is a hard one but don't forget that fluid in other things (fruit, soup, tea) all should count towards your 3 litres!

I once took a job to cover someone's maternity leave and when the person returned, the employer found a reason to keep me too. So that could always happen for Olivier too - fingers crossed. Anyway, all good for the CV as you say.

Here's to your M-I-L being comfortable.

Doris: MIL is still with us and living in her own home. Olivier is off in two days; he has found a fantastic apartment for a reasonable rent. He just has to practice doing up his tie...
Still drinking at least 1 and half litres a day

Hallo Anji and a very Happy New Year to you.

I guess there must be lots going on keeping you occupied. Thinking of you and wishing you the very best.

BTW I loved your comment about practising to do up his tie!
