    Once in a while, Alice feels otiose, especially when she is struck by boredom and don't know what to do!

    I think this word, Mel, comes at the right time for me. I do feel a little idle at the moment. I need a new challenge! And I will set out to look for it. Thank God for blog (and also old) friends and the very many books to read!
