Documenting not dying since October 2013.

The 20th & 21st; I meowed at a lion.

The 20th & 21st; I meowed at a lion.


The 20th of October.  I feel somewhat better this evening. Had a good sleep, although it seemed very busy - I had so many dreams. In one, I meowed at a lion and it did not like it. 

The day has been mainly dictated by the fixing of the door. The only effect it had on me was that we didn't go to the cinema, but that wasn't a major issue. I wrote up a blog post, but didn't post it until the door was fixed. I don't know why, nobody could have broken in. Anyway. I then had to remake the head of Heidi's doll, so I sat with that on my lap until about three, and now her body is finished (again). Except she needs hair. 

Went upstairs for an hour and watched an episode of The Blacklist. I can climb the stairs a bit more easily than last week - I don't need oxygen when I get to the top. I think I'll be alright on Tuesday for my anaesthetic. 

Back downstairs, I put on today's Buffy and started making the hat required for Heidi's doll, while Mommy and Daddy went to pick up the car from its MOT. Mid-hat, I had a visit from James who wanted to leave a drill with us and borrow a key. We had a nice chat - I haven't seen him or Becky for ages. Need to have her round when we're both not ill. 

The 21st of October. 

I suspect this is going to be a rather short entry because my day has been one of little action. 

Mommy has been out all day on a bread-making course that Christine and I bought for her for Christmas, so I've had to get everything for myself today. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but it meant much pain, especially when making coffee and lunch. Stupid disintegrating back. 

So I have spent pretty much my entire day sat in front of the tv, bingeing on The Blacklist and attaching strands of hair to the doll. It's a very tedious job, but it is a labour of love. I have now run out of wool so I've got to order some more. My collection is growing out of control. 

And that is literally it. Mommy's back now, and she has brought home a white loaf, two wholemeal breadbuns, half a foccacia, half a ciabatta and a milk bun which I have eaten. So much bread. I am delighted.

The 22nd & 23rd; Small victories.

The 18th & 19th; Progress is glacial.
