*melty hot badness*

24 Celsius and sunny. No improvement foreseen in the next couple of days; if anything, worse. And if I had my one wish, it'd be that the English football team lose to whoever they're playing, whenever they're playing, as soon as possible, then we can get back to normal. Lager-drenched cropheads in ill-fitting 'England' tops aren't a pleasant sight, and the bloody thing hasn't even started properly yet, AFAIK.

CBT was hard work but on the whole not too awful this morning. So that's the end of my evaluation; now we start on the therapy. Up to 45 sessions of it. With holidays and all, call it a year.

I'm getting on OK with Jill, I think. She's constructively unobtrusive. She doesn't push; she's good at giving time and space for thought and consideration. It's odd, but it feels like she thinks I ought to have more self-pity than I do. Maybe I am too tough on myself. It just doesn't feel as though I am. Ah well, that's stuff to work on more later.

So after that, how better to calm the nerves than two large cappuccini (coffees, not monks), a new second-hand book and a trip to LUSH? The new bubble bar slices look and smell wonderful, particularly the blackberry one. I may use some of that in a long cool bath this afternoon to soak off the sweat. stephen_john served me today. It's good to hear that life's treating him a bit more gently now. He's such a sweet, good-natured guy that just thinking about him can make me break out in smiles.

And there is chilled cranberry-and-raspberry juice. Joy!
