I am not sure how I first came across Julia Nunes, probably via her YouTube channel.

Idiosyncratic isn’t the word, her music videos are uniquely hers, and an utter delight.

In such times, I forget about any good intentions, and just indulge myself with whatever makes me feel better, including lots of orange juice, which I always have a craving for when I am ill.

Anyway, today was the first time since Tuesday night that I haven’t been collapsed on either my bed or sofa. I spent the morning tidying up the bathroom and kitchen (the lounge is still a bombsite, but that’s for another day), but at lunchtime I decided I needed some fresh air. So I took a trip down to Ferry Meadows, part of Nene Park.
