Archives For bones

The 2nd of March.

Snow has been constant since lunchtime. Too cold to function.

Obviously, I have not been anywhere. I wrote up a blog post, and then I got started on Nish’s boxer dog while binge-watching Bones. Thirty episodes had built up on the box so it was my duty to make a dent.

Christine has come home because we’re supposed to be going to the indoor athletics tomorrow, although I’m not sure what the weather will have to say about that. I do not feel particularly enthusiastic about braving the cold. Anyway – she got to Euston 45 minutes early because there were no problems then, and was able to get on any train to get here. This proved useful and getting here from Birmingham was tricky because of local trains, but she eventually arrived about one. She then spent the afternoon at the hairdresser while Daddy watched a film with Mac, and I sat here and watched the snow fall.

The 3rd of March.

I did not go to the athletics. Multiple reasons – didn’t fancy breathing the freezing air; driving was going to be perilous, so the train was the chosen transport and I couldn’t have got to the arena in my chair in the snow.

I had a very cosy morning, with some dodgy socks and a fuzzy jumper on, thermals underneath. I made the ears and tail of the boxer dog, and made sure Mac was happy and not too cold.

Mommy and Christine got back just before three, and we watched Masterchef while I put the dog together. Her face has been fiddly as fuck to make because of loads of colour changes, so I won’t be making another one.

They brought back a pizza some, so tonight we are having home-made pizzas for dinner for the first time. It is an experiment.

The 4th of May. 

Just been playing with the kittens and the sun is out – it’s a great day. 

Woke up from a really odd dream about having seven hamsters in individual balls in a bag and I really needed to get home to let them out. I had a little bit of kitty time this morning, between writing up a blog post and going out to the hygienist. That all went very well – I am good at brushing and flossing twice a day so I have a good gum score, but I still had to have the abrasive flossing done. Shudder. 

This afternoon, I thought I might as well go to the gym because I didn’t need to supervise the kittens. Nothing upsetting happened today; people who irritate me only arrived by the time I had finished, so I had an excellent session. Christine rang while I was waiting for my lift, so I was telling her about the kittens and I think she’s a little bit jealous she isn’t here right now. She’s off to see The Maids tonight at Trafalgar Studios which ought to be good. 

When we got back, we let the kittens out for an explore and a play. Had a worry when Frieda got behind the tv cabinet and I thought she’d get stuck, but she found her way out. The path in has now been blocked up with cushions. Freddie had a wonderful time chasing his tail, and Freya was determined to get the ball. Oh, to be so free of care. 

The 5th of May. 

Well I feel better about my back and elbow but worse about some other things that I need to ring Dr. Robinson about. 

I was at the chiro this morning and I told Trine about all my aches and pains. My gristly ribs was just a misbehaving muscle so that was easy to fix, but she couldn’t do a great deal for the rest. She’s keen for me to get a bone density scan because I could have a vertebrae fracture, and she thinks my elbow feels “anatomically different” and there could be a bone spur? So I have to bring all this up with Andy on the 18th. 

This afternoon I’ve been watching Netflix and allowing the kittens to roam free around the room. They are so full of energy, running, jumping and climbing all over stuff. Lots of pretend hunting too – bushy tails galore! Eventually they wore themselves out and I had three sleepy kittens on my lap. Oh, and Freddie is another hair-eater. What is it with cats and my hair?

I’ve been waiting for two books from Amazon to arrive all day and as I started writing that sentence, they did! They said I could pay £5 extra for them to be delivered today (the hardback’s release date) or have free delivery in about ten days. I chose the free delivery, then got an email last night saying they were on their way! Feeling super smug.
