I am having a rough couple of days. My fibro has flared up once again and is attacking my legs. I am in pain, having problems walking and am extremely grumpy. Unfortunately this has coincided with friends of ours coming up from Melbourne to visit for the weekend. Needless to say, I haven’t been a great host. I just want to curl up into a little ball and wish the world away. Our friends are currently amusing themselves walking around Darling Harbour, a place I probably wouldn’t join them even if I was feeling well. It is just so trashy, touristy and highly commercial.
To get myself mentally away from the pain, I have been curled up on the couch reading Elizabeth Moon’s Trading in Danger which is the first book of the Vatta War series. I love Elizabeth Moon’s work and the Vatta War series is my favourite. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who loves a good sci-fi adventure and loves seeing strong female characters in literature. Despite the pain, I have had a nice weekend lost in a good book.
