Crying Blue Murder*

“Are you having a shower before we go out?” Mum says.

“No: had two showers yesterday and that’s plenty,” I say, standing by the kettle.

“What’s that sound?” Mum says, looking at me.  She’s already dressed for the evening in a white dress with navy splodges.

“The kettle,” I say, as it boils.

Haven’t slept this afternoon but have to get dressed as we’re going out for dinner soon.  Am exhausted but during my afternoon sleep time end up just thinking about Seb and crying.   Now am lying on the floor writing this.  The panther is stretched out next to me, resting his head on my thigh.  He is very heavy.

The attached photo is from a winery that we went to today.

Right: had better put on a dress, clean teeth and so on.  It will be good to go out and meet some people.  Whenever am on own, just start thinking about Seb and crying.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
