New annoyances: thousand-pound council tax bill for a place I no longer live, necessitating lots of repeat phone calls to people who are terribly nice but say everything's fixed when it turns out later that it isn't; I can't find my copy of Bishop's English Caroline Minuscule (once owned by Clemoes); I still have a horrible sore throat and the only pastilles which help are foul; and frankly being involved in the castration of sweet little alpacas is revolting.
