Awake Early

I woke up this morning around 4am and kinda lay in bed all awakey but hopeful of return of sleepiness. It was all fine (although dark, and boring) until about 5 when I started feeling really sick. Got up and took a spit, I feel ok now so hopefully it was just a random annoyance and not some stupid bug.

So at least I got up early. I am reading some crazy books at the moment - one on Arawata Bill (NZ goldminer/bushman), one on the history of vegetables, another on the history of gunpowder, and the biography of a girl brought up in the treaty-port enclaves of China in the late 19th century. She spent something like 3 years in a japanese detention camp, as well as losing a baby, 4 husbands, a twin sister and all her money several times along the way. Great story. It's called Lilla's Feast.

I need to buy some more long socks for winter.
