The 7th & 8th; If all my new Twitter followers joined the organ donor register, up to 144 people could benefit.
The 7th of July.
Today was not quite as good, but I am still happy this evening. I only had about an hour of sleep, so I've been awake since about quarter past two and am really rather droopy, but am coping.
Mommy and I went to Tom's Bakery for breakfast where I had a large pain au chocolat which was yummy, and we bought some rosemary and sea salt foccacia, a pain aux raisins for Daddy, and a blondie for my pudding tonight. Then I took back to New Look one of the dresses I got in Exeter as it was too small (couldn't expand lungs), bought some backless sandals from Clarks so my heels wouldn't hurt so much today, and some dextrose tablets from Boots for when I flag, before buying a newspaper and arriving at Espressini just as Rupert was clearing what is now my table. I stayed there all morning and had lunch there of a chorizo, mahion cheese, lettuce and tomato brioche roll (I took the tomato out). Daddy came to join me for a bit and we talked a bit while reading our respective paper, then he felt a bit cramped and left. When I was finished, I went for a bimble to a couple of vintage shops and checked out Stones Bakery where the cake looks good. I was continuing to explore when it started to rain and did not cease, so once my feet were very damp I decided to call it a day and come home.
I watched some tv with my parents and did some puzzles, and calculated that if all my new Twitter followers joined the organ donor register, up to 144 people could benefit.
I hope to sleep better tonight.
The 8th of July.
Hm well the skin on my hands is starting to to misbehave so we've had to bring the steroids back up - 7 today, but I'm not happy with them tonight so going back up to 10mg tomorrow. It's hugely frustrating and we didn't bring the steroid cream because we I said we wouldn't need it and I am stupid.
I spent my morning at Espressini again, although my table was taken but Rupert came to find me as soon as it was vacated. I read my paper and as I'd had a slightly more decent night (I took a Zopiclone), I tried the decaf which was nice but it did feel like something was missing? I took a last flat white to go and set off in search of lunch.
I walked a very long way (for me) and ended up in a shop called Dizzy where I tried on loads of dresses which made me really sweaty and my hair was a total mess by the end. I bought two dresses and a top, then it was raining outside so everyone's hair looked a bit shit and I felt better. I also was happy with my outfit choice of jeans and boots as it was supposed to rain and had been warm and sunny until then!
I had lunch at a place called The Meat Counter, and just as I'd ordered a pulled pork "burger" and sat down, Mommy texted to find out what my plans were, then she and Daddy came to join me. Daddy and I wanted gelato but not immediately, so we went there via various shops, doing a lot of "sweep-browses", except in the bookshop where I bought five. I was close to also buying all the Moomin books. Mommy took them home while Daddy and I had gelato except I had mango and lemon sorbets, and will return for gelato another day.
Twitter has been great today.
Cheese straws! Pastries!
Saffron buns! Other buns!
Rosemary and sea salt focaccia!
So much fresh bread!
Yes I bought.
The Meat Counter.
So greasy and delicious.
A palate cleanser.
So much choice!
All the books.
