Bella is Here!
Yes, she journeyed all the way from the US to Cyprus - I expect she is the only one of her kind to touch down here. I picked her up from the Post Office this morning quite early, and rushed home to unpack her. Later I will look out the threads and see what extra colours I need to get, I do not have a full set of DMC here.

I was feeling a little depressed last night, so she is the perfect antidote. Normally I don't let myself be depressed, but sometimes things get to me. This time, it was Sylvain - this man is my boss, even though I work on Leo's project, but he is such a weirdo, basically no interest in anyone except his favourites, and he is often quite rude, he tends to scream a lot when he gets stressed. I don't have a lot of respect for him, for this and other reasons.

So I just slumped in my chair and listened to an audiobook, "The Library Paradox", by Catherine Shaw. I recommend this and others in the series, they are about a lady detective in Victorian England, living in Cambridge. They use events from the period very well, "The Library Paradox" is connected with the Dreyfus Affair, and the whole question of Jews in society at that time. Fascinating, I think David would enjoy it actually.

Today I need to go over the other side of town for my facial, I hope that will make me feel better. I came to Gloria Jean's just now, because I wanted to check my mail (if anything nasty from Sylvain, better to know what it is!), so that's why I'm writing now. Bella will be photographed later and posted tomorrow...
