Resort to watching Prince of Tides mush to send me back to sleep after dozing off for four hours yesterday evening leaving me wide awake and stressed in the middle of the night. Resolve to relieve stress once in office and see where all is up to—missing six conference sessions and all bar five chapters for four books as it turns out. Sigh. Spend day installing computer for new Dilip helper, grinning at six lads being verbally flayed by woman they knocked off her moped and trying to rid our systems of two virii that are quite rife at the moment.

Lost appetite briefly after learning that the mutton samosa I’m eating could equally be called goat samosa.
