Wake up at six o’clock. Dad has set the heating to come on at six now, so it’s freezing 🥶 but starts to warm up.
Bump into Mum in the kitchen at six twenty and she cuts me up an apple.
Finish Carrie Fisher’s Wishful Drinking: what a wonderful and hilarious book! Read it!
Work really hard at Pilates and have chat with lovely teacher afterwards.
After lunch we walk to the postbox to send a letter ✉️ and then around the garden.
Can’t do anything in bedroom as we have my beautiful Bluebell Gray duvet cover from John Lewis on now:
Yes, that’s the Memoir manuscript you can see where my pillows ought to be:
Working on it today ✅ 💪! Have deleted a couple of weak scenes and need to add my breakup with Seb but have blanked it out due to the therapy I had for my PTSD resulting from being dumped at my flat. So not sure what to do? Have asked Hannah and Suzy if they remember anything but they don’t 😩.
Meditate 🧘♀️ and sleep. Then wake up and have a mango 🥭 and some mango 🥭 and passion fruit cheesecake 🍰 from the Farm. It’s delicious.
Am sad and shocked as Helen McCrory the brilliant, beautiful, wonderful actress has just died aged fifty two from cancer. She kept her diagnosis secret 😭 💔. I saw her on stage as Rosalind in As You Like It and she was Magnificent. More recently she’s starred in five series of one of my favourite shows: Peaky Blinders. I will miss her So Much. Fuck cancer 😡.
Mum is at the vet with Fluffball who has been scratching a hole in his face under his eye 👁. He is the best boy: he walked into his basket without making any fuss. When he was a baby we purchased Bruce Fogle’s cat book and Bruce says to leave the carrier open in your cat’s room so he sees it as a safe place. Fluffy often rests in there. Consequently, it’s no trouble to put him in it to attend the vet. Precious angel Fluffball.
Rafa is losing to Rublev. He’s having a bad day at the office. Ah well. He’ll be better by Roland Garros we hope! He’s now ahead in the second set. VAMOS RAFA 🎾 🐐.
Mum and Fluffball are back armed with new pills 💊. We just give them to him. He is just 6.2kg the good boy but wouldn’t let vet take any blood: he did growling. He has to stay in for a whole week as apparently the tree pollen is bad. Poor Fluffy monster.
Happy Friday everyone!
