Ill • 23 November 2007 • The SnowBlog



I have been ill most of this week. Yes, I know, I am a brave soldier for appearing so chipper on the blog, and for doing thousands of hours of work without hardly a complaint. You may gasp in awe at my amazingness. 

The reason I mention it is that I feel a bit better now. And I think I know why. I have just had my first coffee in three weeks. I am a coffee addict, I think (certainly a big fan, at least), and was drinking more than ten cups a day - until three Saturdays ago when I decided to go cold turkey. It wasn't too bad. I switched to boring old tea, and didn't feel tired or anything. But this week, I think the lack of coffee plus a bug has floored me. 

So. Back on the coffee - for health reasons. Can't say I didn't try.  


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
