The 30th of May.
Mommy is definitely poorlier than me, bless her. She’s full of snuffles and sinus pain. I am just coughing and occasionally blowing my nose. I did text Vlad this morning to postpone our first session because although I do not feel wretched, by no means am I up to training, and I don’t think fellow gym-goers would appreciate me spreading my germs all over the place.
Sarah came back to see the kittens this morning and brought her friend Ruth with her, so we spent an hour with the little fatties running around. I’ve had to start feeding Gracie separately because when the other two are chowing down, she is too polite to muscle in and just gets left the scraps. No wonder she’s the smallest.
This afternoon, I caught up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (very stressful), then went back to the kittens so they could roam free and I could structure and finish my talk. I think I’ve got it now; it is all written down on my Moomin notepaper.
Oh, and Alison brought me a cupcake from the Hummingbird Bakery which they visited this weekend while in London. Which reminds me, I need to factor in a cake trip after Anthony Nolan.
The 31st of May.
In the last half an hour, I have found out that the kittens are weeing somewhere they shouldn’t (I had to wash my hands a lot), but I also saw a big pug at the vet who was wandering around going “WAGHHH” which was vastly entertaining.
Quiet day. Mommy is a bit better which is good, and I remain pretty much the same. I do my coughing in the morning and evening, so as long as that continues, I’ll be fine to do my talk at lunchtime tomorrow.
This morning, I crocheted an orang-utan leg, and tried to decide what I’m going to do after the talk. I was planning on going to the zoo, but the weather is not going to be good for that, so I must find something else to occupy my time. I’ve also booked tickets for my trains in July when I have the parliamentary reception.
After lunch, I sat with the kittens and let them run around until we had to take them to the vet for their first jabs. They were all very good when it came for the time for them to go in the carrier, and in the car they just looked out of the window, no sad mews at all.
Gabby and Gabe have both put on a good amount of weight, about 150g each, but Gracie’s only gained 30g. Going to have to feed her more! Too polite! I have to weigh them again at home in a week and see how we’re doing.
