08 Thursday

I completely forgot there’s a WI meeting tonight! I’ve been so busy catching up on my bujo pages I have no mind for anything else! Vivian showed up to pick me up as usual and I was like huh? What are you doing here? I felt quite bad about that!

09 Friday

Stephen Fry made me yawn, lol. I was listening to Harry Potter book 3 and he was voicing Harry in a yawny voice about to go to sleep and that made me actually yawn, haha.

* * * * *

Tonight, Piers called me geeky for drawing loads of lines and boxes in my bujo for planners and trackers. Then later he called me weird for doing yoga poses that he doesn’t recognise as popular yoga poses. As if he knows anything about yoga!

10 Saturday

What a crazy day! I was doing C25K in the garden and all these things happened!

  • A small tree had fallen over so I interrupted my session a bit to photograph it.
  • Then I tried to photograph our big red tree cos it’s so pretty.
  • 10 minutes in, it started to rain so I tried to continue my run indoors, which was quite hard.
  • Few minutes later, the rain stopped and I had to put on my shoes again to go outside.
  • There was a big rainbow in the sky so I spent some time photographing it!
  • When I was ready to focus on my C25K fully, a fly flew into my eye! I had to run indoors to wash it out but I don’t know if I succeeded.
  • After all that, I felt I had to do my session all over again. What should have taken 30 mins in the end took over an hour!

Life and Death

I dreamt that I tried to commit suicide. It surprised me because I haven’t felt suicidal recently. It’s also the first time I’ve dreamt such a thing and it weirds me out a bit. I’ve been feeling largely positive, even happy, the last few months, even though I never did stop being aware that there are unresolved issues and unfixable things that plague me.

Even in the glow of positivity and happiness, there is a stress that will never go away because life can never be the neat little package you want it to be. I don’t want to kill myself at the moment but I wouldn’t mind ceasing to exist.

In my dream, the attempt failed and I woke up feeling disappointed, both in the dream and in real life. Where do I go from here? I don’t know. Keep trying, die trying, to fix my life as well as I can. Look outside the window and focus on the good things.

Gratitude

I’m grateful for all the people in the world who make the world a better place with kindness, love and compassion.

Lifeguard

I will never stop being amazed at Piers’ superpower. We were at our pond and it’s pretty chaotic. Dragonflies flitting around, dead leaves and weeds and ripples on the surface, uneven muddy ground on the bottom. In the middle of that, he suddenly pointed out a tiny splashing that wouldn’t quit and said a dragonfly was drowning. It was far away in the middle of a really huge pond and I honestly couldn’t tell. But Piers saw it and managed to rescue it with a ridiculously long wooden beam that’s used to sweep pond weeds. Makes me speechless!

I’m so grateful for home cleaning services!

Scaredy Cat

Recently, I had the brilliant idea to read all of Stephen King’s novels in chronological order. I want to enjoy the rich connections amongst all his books, plus I love his characterisation.

I’ve finished Carrie and am now on ‘Salem’s Lot. And I’m having second thoughts. I seemed to have forgotten that I can’t deal with creepy haunted house horror!

So I don’t know what to do. I’m scared to read it now, and I know there are more titles like it. But I hate giving up the idea!

Ladybird Update

Ladybird update: (ref. Oct 21 / Oct 24)

(Friday) Ted the dad is missing!
(Saturday) Ted is back! So far I have yet to see the girls move.

Obviously I don’t know their gender so I’m making it up. The red ones are the girls and the black ones are the boys!

Today’s Exercise

Dan from the garage came looking for Piers and I had to leave him at the door and run all the way to the garden to get him. He was at the far end, too, trimming the hedge, so he couldn’t hear me shouting!

I’m grateful for the pretty colours of autumn in nature.

Piers

Today in Telegram:

Piers: Rich cancelled the TVR meetup.
Me: I didn’t know there was a TVR meetup.
Piers: Well, it’s just me and him. With our TVRs.
Me: You can’t call that a TVR meetup!!

Mini Win

I’m proud of myself for walking downstairs to get a glass of water instead of ignoring my thirst like usual. How sad are my victories, lol.

Runaway

The ladybird family are still there (ref. Oct 21) but today one of them is exploring the curtain. (I’ve not seen any of them move before.) I’ve given them names off the top of my head. Ted and Sue, the parents. Beth and Mary, the girls. Little Johnny is the one running about, the rascal.

The next night: Little Johnny’s missing! Now it’s a family of four! But later I found him in the bedroom near the curtain. It’s a long way from home! I made Piers put him back with his family in case he’s lost. At first he kept walking away but we kept trying and finally he settled down in the circle.

I wonder if he was lost or bored or… a runaway!

Gratitude

I’m grateful that the weather is now cold enough for us to get our soft, fluffy blanket out of storage for snuggles on the sofa. It’s pure bliss!

Piers decided a Cornetto would go nicely with Netflix and a snuggly blanket. As he opened the wrapper, he joked, “Would you be upset if I dropped chocolate on your fresh, clean blanket?”

“YES!” I said, “Be very careful!”

And then he proceeded to drop chocolate bits on 2 different spots on the blanket, and also manage to rub them in while trying to fish the chocolate out!

HA-HA

Q: How many people does it take to drive to a restaurant to celebrate Piper’s birthday?

A: At least 4! One to operate the car and 3 to shout out directions at the same time! (And 2 other optional people to pretend that this isn’t happening.) Gotta love family!

OMG!

Last night, Piers said, “You don’t mind if I set the dishwasher to start early in the morning?” (Cos it’s noisy and wakes me.)

I said, “Fine. I have to wake up early tomorrow, anyway.”

This morning, the dishwasher went, “ZNGGGG!” and woke me. It was 5:30 am. Who in the world…?! This is called middle of the night!!
