I finally got to sleep about 2am and woke suddenly at about 5:50. I don't know what woke me, but I couldn't get back to sleep again even though I was tired. Jus got home about 7am completely wiped after pretty much two solid days doing the cabling in London. Had lots of snuggles and lovin' when he surfaced around noon, then we hit town to see people at Browns. Yay, Ed's not got a cast on his leg any more, though he still needs crutches. It was great to see misstemperance again, because I've missed seeing her since the Amber game went on hold.
After that we went to the library to return and get books, and for me to get a copy of the Coventry Writers' Group poster I'd seen there a week or so ago, and which I forgot to copy yesterday. The group meets, according to the poster, the first Tuesday of every month at the Tam o' Shanter club in town; however, it doesn't say at what time (duh!) so I'll have to mail the contact people and ask. I'm not sure how good it'll be, but if I don't like it I don't have to keep going, do I?
Then to Lush to pick up a birthday present for someone. Great chat about the upcoming new products with one of the cute assistants. Possibly even a wee bit of flirting :) And, wow! I got mega-freebied this visit: a Summer Blues ballistic, a Big Blue ballistic, and two (misshaped, but full size) Ma Bar bubble bars. That was really lovely of her. I don't know how Lush selects and trains its shop staff, but I'm immensely impressed. In all the Lush shops I've been to, I've never encountered even one assistant who wasn't attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. I do think they deserve some kind of consumer appreciation award.
Food shopping done; home at last. Jus is having a catch-up nap. Then I'm making a prawn salad with tomato and herb bread rolls for supper, and we're both going to have an early night.
Bit of a not so good pain day, unfortunately, but that's just natural variation. Also not so hot on the depression at times, to put it mildly, but again that could also be accounted for by not having anything like enough sleep. Even so, it's better than it has been. And, to be honest, though drugs and sunshine are almost certainly helping, I don't think I could have made it through without you. You really are the best, all of you.
