The 22nd of July.
My bed was so great. I had a beautiful sleep, although I did have a dream that we forgot to put the sleeve on. Not that it would be the end of the world, but in the dream it was very stressful.
This morning, I watched Sunday Brunch while writing about yesterday, then I finished reading The Intrusions. It’s very good – not as clever as a Jeffery Deaver, but I think I’d read another one by this guy. His name is Stav Sherez. Maybe I’ll look at some of the ones that precede this in the series.
After lunch, the couple I spoke to earlier in the week came to see Dolly. She was out on the wind when the doorbell rang, but as soon as she heard new voices, she was straight under the chair. She stayed there the whole time, so the only way they saw her was by crouching down to look. Still, I told them everything about her, and despite her best efforts, they still want her! Only trouble is, they can’t take her for five weeks, so we need to decide how that’s going to work.
Then I spent the rest of the afternoon watching series 3 of Zoo on Netflix. So much exposition. Still, I smashed through the first four episodes so it can’t have bothered me that much. Dolly came out as soon as the people had gone. She’ll have to get used to them!
The 23rd of July.
Hottest day of the year and I choose to go back to the gym for the first time in a month.
This morning, it felt like I had nothing to do. Once I’d had my breakfast and coffee, I rang Fiona (nurse from The Spire) about getting the problematic stitch removed. Most of them have sorted themselves out now, there are just two left that are being reluctant. Anyway, I’m going to see her tomorrow morning. I also spoke to Sarah about Dolly going back to the cattery briefly, but they have no space whatsoever, so she will be staying here for the next five weeks. That does give us the opportunity to build trust before we have to get her in the carrier again. Maybe she’ll have forgotten what it’s like.
After lunch, to the gym! They have air con, so I was not caused any problems by the heat. I didn’t do any arm stuff, although I am allowed to do a little. For today I just did legs and abs, so I was only there for about an hour and a half. Unfortunately, school holidays mean there were loads of youths, and one of them smelled so bad, I had to breathe in the opposite direction.
Tomorrow I think I will be very stiff.
