A terrible beauty was born at Reading Ireland Month these last few days – a terrible sickness, that is.

Cathy at 746 Books was laid low by a stomach bug, and I succumbed to a severe case of man flu and have spent the last three days in the sort of feverish delirium reserved for heroines of gothic novels.

I missed all of the Easter 1916 Centenary celebrations, much like this fella who decided to answer his phone while the President was laying a wreath outside the GPO.

  1. I bet that army officer is in trouble for being on the phone- on TV!
    I watched the centenary commemoration on the news. It seemed to be well-attended, and very dignified.
    I hope that you and Kathy have recovered by now.
    Cheers, Pete.
