As of this morning, I've downgraded Lisa's stomach bug from acute cholera to mild dysentery, so I think she's on the mend. I've spent the past 36 hours refusing to kiss her in the hope of avoiding infection, but she's put a remarkably brave (and surprisingly cheerful) face on that situation, and battled on regardless.

In the meantime, I've been embracing communism by getting pally with the Chinese. I e-mailed the bloke behind Newness World on Monday about Amelie's love for his software, and sent him a link to her latest video. Yesterday I received this e-mail which was made in China and written in English. Or an approximation of it...

Your daughter is so so cute!
Thanks very much for your video! We'll continually add new scenes and work hard for your enjoy :)

With best regards,

No mention of freebies then. That's the trouble with China – it doesn't matter which way you turn, sooner or later you'll hit a brick wall. I should have laid it on thick about how tough life is in coalition-ruled Britain.

Why dont you tell Mr Newness World that should his customers tilt their computer screens about 30 degrees when building the crocodile then they can also make a Lindt Rabbit?

You may mock their English, but did you write to them in Chinese?

Well I certainly mentioned my love of takeaways.
