You know what? Despite all the grief, worry and fretting the whole country has been enduring since Christmas -- you know the drill, we're all facing more pay cuts, more pension levies, and this year promises to be the hardest any of us have ever experienced -- I have been walking around in a kind of Zen-like trance of tranquillity.

Am I suddenly doing a load of drugs? Have I begun to drink so heavily that I am now inured to the bad craziness that is engulfing us? Have I, God forbid, (as it were) found peace through religion?

Nope -- I have simply not had a mobile phone in my hands since two days before Christmas.
