That's better!
Lily is now in a hi-tech 'walking cast', thanks to the magic of Velcro, plastic and wetsuit material! The cast is light and supremely comfortable, and best of all, she can take it off to have a bath and give her lower leg a breather. Review due in six weeks.
So no more boring stuff about doctors.
I'm staying up here in beautiful Olympia until Friday arvo, when I'll drive south to Portland in Oregon, and meet David at the airport. Then we'll continue our adventures homewards.

:: Sign-ups are open for NaNoWriMo 2008 — National Novel Writing Month. The idea is that you join this incredible international online community and settle yourself down to write a 50,000-word novel in the thirty days of November. Over 100,000 people did it in 2007.
I took part for the first time last year and even got to 50,000 words! I can't wait to get stuck into it this year. My effort last year was rambling crap, of course, but the point is purely to get your writing juices flowing, and to promote the wonders (and strains, and knackering effort) of creative writing. Let me know if you come along for the fun!

Hi there, Thanks for dropping by and I am looking forward to meeting Laura. I'm very excited. I won;'t be doing the writing in November - I just know that it will be crap- BUT let me know where you are and I'll read it along with lots of others.

The walking cast sounds excellent. I like the idea that it can be taken off for bathing etc.
