Much Obliged, Jeeves*

Wake up at 7am and stay awake. Still awake until after half past nine – for Strength class.

Then back to sleep. And when I wake up, I am awoken by by this person:

Walk around the garden in the garden with Mum and Fluffball.

After lunch, go to sleep and when I wake up, watch a very early Hitchcock.

Enjoy the film, which is is not his best, but well worth watching. Tomorrow I start PG Wodehouse: Much Obliged Jeeves.

Happy Monday everyone!

Aunt’s Aren’t Gentlemen^

Here is my light up flower bouquet. It is so pretty, isn’t it?

There are a couple of bad things hangs happening at the moment.

1. I’ve been been been feeling very confused and Dad decides it’s the cyclizine: so I’ve been reducing that and now, finally, stopped it. I already feel less unsteady.

2. My tummy is swollen but I have to wait for about ten days to drain it as afterwards the needle could puncture one or more of my organs.

Ugh: cancer side effects.

On the plus side: speak to brother in abroad.

Work hard at Pilates this morning.

The Man Who Died Twice

Wake up at 7am and have breakfast. Don’t go back to sleep 😴. Go back to bed but finish the Ian Rankin and start the sequel. To The Thursday Murder Club. It’s great: funny and original. Cast mainly from the original. It’s called The Man Who Died Twice. Urge you to read it.

Strength is great: I recommend this class as well. It’s just 30 minutes and we cover every part of the body. Time flies,

Speak to my psychiatrist who agrees with all of us and so I’m going to continue phasing out the cyclizine. He is pleased with me.

Have lunch, meditate and sleep.

After sleep: wake up . The panther is lying on top of the bed. I cry.

“I just want a normal life,” I say.

“,You’ll never be normal,” the panther says.

On my duvet, I see my Fluffy. He makes me happy. The panther will make me happy.

The Dark Remains*

Wake up at 7.5am. Go for a drive with Mum to vet for more for Fluffball food. Walking round the garden see:


Sleep a lot today.

“You’re so useless: you cant even stay awake or garden,” the panther says.

Have lunch, meditate and sleep.

Some parental friends visit whom haven’t seen for ages. It’s so good to see them.

Stiff Upper lip, Jeeves*

Wake up about 6am. Go back to sleep. Wake up again at 8am. Have breakfast and then do Strength, a new weights class. Love it.

Go in the garden with Mum:

Amethyst arrives . It’s enormous. It comes from my Blogging chums: Linda and Monty. Isn’t it stunning?

The panther is so exhausted today. He won’t let Me do anything: he just lies about where he’s been.

It’s 6.24pm. Going back to sleep.

Happy Wednesday everyone!.

The Master*

Wake up early, have breakfast and go back to sleep.

There is a shortage of petrol, so sit in the car for an hour, waiting. Make it to the front of the queue and there is still petrol. Yay!

Go to Ayletts to look at the dahlias. They are stunning:

A view of the Celebration Garden where the dahlias are mixed in with other plants.

We have lunch 🥗 in the garden: apparently this is the last sunny day to sit outside for a while.

Meditate and sleep. Wake up and read more of my Federer book: The Master: the Brilliant Career of Roger Federer.

“Don’t get out of bed,” the panther says. “It’s bad for you.”

I look away from him.

Read more of my Federer book. It’s a great read.

I have to sleep now.

Happy Sunday everyone!

The World Of Jeeves*

Wake up early and then go back to sleep. Arrange my alarm clock to wake me up again in time for Pilates. It’s a tough class today but it sets me up for the day.

Set of to Hannah’s to meet her rabbit Willow. He is a gorgeous person with very soft fur:

The panther seems to be confused as to why we are meeting a prey animal.

“Yum,” the panther says gazing at the rabbit.

“Friend, not food,” I say. He looks at me as if I’m an imbecile.

We need make it home at 1pm as I have to sleep.

Part from Hannah with hope that we’ll see each other again soon.

At home: have a good sleep until Mum’s bridge partner visits us.

We sit in the garden until about 6pm.

Now I’m back in bed after a full day and feel cheered up.

Ring For Jeeves*

Wake up at 6am, return to sleep. Wake up at 8am, have breakfast. Fall back to sleep until 9.30 am.

It’s Pilates today which is a good class. Ignore the panther’s vicious words.

Then to hospital for denosumab. It’s the one to to stop the cancer in my bones 🦴.

At home have lunch, meditate then sleep. Have to have my lunch and am So Tired: doing more than one thing per day Really Exhausts me.

The new outdoor table and chairs arrive. Dad assembles it. Here it is:

Fluffball comes in for his supper. We are in my bedroom now. Fluffball on my windowsill:

Have been reading Ring For Jeeves. Its so good: hilarious and meticulously plotted.

Right – it’s Bedtime. See you all tomorrow.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Murder, She Meowed*

Wake up absolutely exhausted at 7am. Have breakfast and then return to sleep about 9.30am.

It’s Personal Training and I work So Hard. The panther watches me from my bed.

“Your tummy is so bloated” he says.

“It’s just the constipation,” I say, trying to get op to 20 skull-crushers.

It’s tough but I can do it, I say to myself.

“You can’t really do it,” the panther says.

“So I will get better,” I say.

“You’re deluded then,” the panther says.

I close my ears. I’ve always had to engage with the panther, but actually I can just ignore him.

After Personal Training, Dad takes me to the doctors’ surgery for my flu injection 💉: there’s nobody there. The nurse has to inject it into my leg so I have to go inside. Now: six hours later, my leg is very sore.

Come home, have lunch, meditate and sleep 😴:

Wake up and have my snack in the garden with Mum. Then we go in for my bath 🛁 and supper.

When I arrive in my bedroom, there is someone on my windowsill:

We are going to sleep now.

Happy Thursday everyone!
