The Way Through The Woods*

Sleep from 8.30pm all the way through to 5.45am.

At breakfast time, give Fluffball his second breakfast:

Edit the first hundred pages of my novel.


Watch an episode of Inspector Morse whilst knitting.

Have managed some eating today: toast with lemon curd for breakfast; a ginger biscuit; some pineapple 🍍; toast with cottage cheese and avocado 🥑 for lunch; baked potato 🥔 with cottage cheese for supper.

Now am going back to bed.

Have to be better by tomorrow as am walking my darling Dolly. Looking forward to seeing her very much.

Fluffball is sleeping on the piano stool. Dad is at chess ♟; Mum is at literary society 📚. Looking forward to returning to bed in a minute.

Haven’t been sick again since yesterday lunchtime which is good.

Happy Monday everyone!

Curiosity Thrilled The Cat*

Writing this from the car. Mum picks me up. Am up all night with vomiting bug. Really ill. One of my Pilates chums has it.

Is terrible feeling when there is nothing left to throw up and there is just the yellow stuff coming out.

Horrible Macmillan won’t give me a nurse: it seems they don’t care how ill I am or want to know.

Saw my chap briefly last night but he went home as I couldn’t stop being sick everywhere.

So am missing the tennis.

Wake up this morning and massively sick again and phone Mum and she picks me up.

It’s a lovely sunny day and I will see my orange fluffy nurse soon.

He is hopefully outside the darling Fluffball.

Happy Sunday everyone!
