Mr Willoughby enjoying the autumn sunshine. He's not cross with you or me - every time he leans around to wash his flank, his tail baps him on the nose.

I am still here! I am thinking of you all, and holding you in my heart. The busies, they consume me, but I will be back soon.

Morning. Miss Cinnamon didn’t come home last night. Tom slept downstairs to listen out for her, but nothing. I’m very anxious.

Tiny apple tree has produced enormous apples, and ... is flowering. Thanks, climate crisis?

also me: puts out food for the stray cat, starts thinking up names

Jeff, a semicolon, and an Oxford comma go to a bar.

They both had a great time.

I've been storing some furniture for friends while they renovate their house, and they are finished! In a few hours they will come to pick up their stuffs! I get a whole room back!

The lime tree is busting out all over! And not only with limes.

Close-up of the lime tree, showing some tomato vines have crept into the branches.

OK so wasn’t a CPN, she’s a social worker, but she’s going to support me jointly with a CPN who will come next week for at least the next few weeks. She’s v happy that I’ve taken 2 months off to try and get better. Told her I was scared of everything spiralling out of control, …ODing, running away, police being called, etc. very last thing I want is to end up in hospital god knows where and be on daily med pickups for the rest of the year. Must remember that to counter the planning.

Good news is there is sick pay for up to 12 weeks after all! I just need the SW to ask one of the doctors for medical evidence justifying my absence. She’s also going to ask about PRN sleep meds.

OK. Bedtime. Better clean my teeth before the drugs kick in. Hoping not to be online again before 6am at the very earliest.

Things I could do this coming week:

  1. Take the bus to the seaside and walk on the beach
  2. Take the bus to Biggertown and browse the charity shops
  3. Running
  4. Start my tapestry kit
  5. Follow a new path out to the woods
    Must try not to just lie in bed plotting my own demise

I made the critical error of doing lots of jigsaw puzzles when I was processing a trauma, so now the whole concept is soaked in tears.

Dunno which Churchill he's talking about. How is this guy still considered a historian??

David Starkey: "When human rights were invented by Churchill, they were intended to protect the individual against the state. The left has redesigned them to protect minorities against the majority."

On cold, wet days, Mr Willoughby likes to pretend he is still a homeless orphan. His basket by the fire is literally 2m away.

Back in bed because I lack the motivation to do anything else

I spent yesterday in bed, and it was magic. Safe, warm, comfy, quiet, all the good things. I hope yours helps!

I came downstairs after my long sleep to find two spare humans sleeping in the lounge. I immediately went back upstairs to inform the preferred human, but she didn't seem very concerned at all.

I went back downstairs, hissed at the spare humans, then gave them a hard stare. They haven't taken the hint, so I have gone outside for my own safety.

ExtraPenguin,
@ExtraPenguin@aus.social avatar

@Colin
Maybe the spare humans are for food? Or to be sacrificed to the gods?

It’s my actual 50th birthday tomorrow. The thought fills me with dread to the point that I feel sick. I would like to sleep through until Saturday

@purplepadma
Can you? Maybe having a very low energy birthday is just the thing after the party high.

Gone into a massive weepy spiral thinking about returning to PhD work. Trying to eat my lunch but I can’t swallow because I’m crying too much

It's been a lot of emotions all at once. Is there some time to decompress and change gears?
