The 25th & 26th; I still find him everywhere.
The 25th of August. Well, they went to London, and are on their way back with a Mommy feeling less than great. Going to have to keep my "I told you so"s to myself.
So it's been just me and Dolly all day, on her last day here. She hasn't been great company, just sleeping. This morning, I wrote up a blog post and watched Romesh on Saturday Kitchen. Grandma rang to find out how Mommy was, but it's hard to tell her when she refuses to wear her hearing aid and you have to shout the same thing multiple times. I think she got the gist.
This afternoon, I've been crocheting and watching House. I was doing another blanket with some baby wool, but that seemed a bit boring and so I've abandoned that and made the first part of a pair of booties instead. I think they will be cute.
I had a delivery from ASOS of a couple of gym vests and dresses, so I went upstairs to try them on. I then spent an hour clearing out a section of my wardrobe. I had loads of magazines in there that I'm never going to read again and my space is better used housing clothes in an organised fashion. I found a magazine in there called Hello Mr. which was part of a stack subscription and not only is it a magazine for gay men, but there was a piece in it about a young man with Ewing's Sarcoma. In nine days it'll be a year since Dean died but I still find him everywhere.
The 26th of August.
Fuck, I am so cold. I can feel that my toes are cold, which means it is bad.
The day has mainly revolved around Dolly. After I'd had my breakfast and coffee, I went to sit with her to try to make us doing stuff in there in a morning seem normal. She slept under the chair for a bit, then came out and pretended to be my best friend, having all the pets and purring. However, no matter how gently and nicely we tried with tasty food in the carrier, she would not go inside. We started the chasing game, and ended up with her in the corner behind the tv. I got Daddy, who put his giant gardening gauntlets on and managed to pick her up, put her in the carrier and shut the door!
Picked up all the paperwork, put on shoes and off we went to Solihull. We got there and let her out, and she ran under their computer table. We filled in what was left of the forms, and they gave me some presents from DisneyWorld! After lots of chat, we did eventually leave. They'll look after her.
Back home, I ate the doughnut Christine sent back from London (yum), then I put on a warmer jumper and a blanket and I'm still freezing. I hate the weather.
