A day of various minor crises (including news of AS Byatt suffering a fall on holiday in France which may mean she cancels her China visit at the end of this week*), all adding up to a fairly stressful day. Then off to Chongqing - my second visit in a fortnight. “So, how’s tricks?” asks Greg, as we take the airport train. My so-so answer confirms that I am fast becoming ‘not my usual smiley self’. Must be more positive and put things in perspective.
(* actually she’s OK and is coming.)
