Wake up at 3.30am and do a wee. Somehow this wakes Mum up at the other end of the house. She puts me back to bed.
“Why are you awake?” Mum says when she comes in to see me at six o’clock.
“I’m not,” I say, rubbing my eyes 👀.
“You are,” Mum says, opening my curtains. “Why is your window open and why can I smell burning and…
“Oh,” I say, looking at the candles 🕯 on the windowsill. “I blew them out but…”
“Which part of ‘don’t open your window don’t you understand so…”
“I heard the phone ring and saw a wild lion 🦁 in the garden so…”
“You thought Fluffy must be out,” Mum says, walking up the stairs to the kitchen.
Following her, I’m a bit wobbly. I have low blood 🩸 pressure caused by not enough oxygen making it to my lungs which causes dizziness; a sprained ankle – done when I fell out of bed attempting to put on my pyjama trousers and a tremor caused by the morphine.
In the kitchen we make coffee ☕️ and I have iced coffee in my thermos mug:
Fluffball tries to catch the belt of my bathrobe – see above photos.
We have breakfast in the garden whilst watching our robin, blue tits and baby starlings on the feeder.
Dave comes round at eleven o’clock and I do him a Shielding Tarot Reading:
He asks whether he should be trying to acquire a job or concentrate on his business. As you can see from the cards: he is going to be successful and famous in his field – The Star; prosperous – the Seven of Pentacles; happy and content at home – the Ten of Cups; be offered a job by a Leo ♌️ 🦁 woman 👩 – the Queen of Wands 🐱; creative – The Magician or as MadFatRunner calls him: the Magic Ian. The Page of Cups indicates a teenage boy or someone psychic. Dave is a Scorpio ♏️ 🦂 so Cups are his Suit: the Suit of feelings and emotions and love. The preponderance of Major Arcana cards tends to be positive. The Aces of Swords ⚔️ and Cups ☕️ are Yes cards. The World 🌍 indicates travel or having the World in the palm of his hand. The Hanged Man is limbo or stasis.
So it seems that whatever path Dave takes, good things are just around the corner, which is nice.
We have lunch in the garden and then the parentals go out. They don’t return till almost five o’clock.
Fluffy is Still Out.
Supper is Indian Takeaway 🥡 yay 🇮🇳.
Happy Sunday everyone!
