So, enough with the horrid hospital stuff for now. A few people emailed me while I was in there to say at least you've got plenty of time for some reading.. and not so much at the start, but it did get to that point eventually. My husband was kind enough to bring me stacks of books, and this was one of them. Around the World in 80 Dates by Jennifer Cox. I'd read an article about it before it was released and it sounded so funny, and it definately was! I hope the rumours of it being made into a movie are true, I couldn't put it down. I love all the details she inserts from her travels. Honestly, I went into hysterics (seriously, hysterics) whilst reading about her date at the foot massage place in Beijing! I won't spoil it, but I laughed so hard I ended up in a coughing fit and one of the nurses had to come check up on me. I am so one of those people who laugh out loud reading a book in a public place, and sure hospitals probably aren't considered public places (are they?) but it's somewhat embarassing when a nurse or someone walks by room with a look that says 'what is wrong with her?' but I didn't care, I needed cheering up, and this book seriously did the job. Loved it.
