I think it's time I started paying attention to cooking and eating properly again.

There have been too many biscuit and cheese days lately.

So last night, in honour of a dear friend's birthday, I had my first ever degustation dinner at a fancy pants restaurant in town.

And it was good, oh yes.

I only want to eat degustation dinners from now on.

~~~

In other news, I am finally accepting that I seem to be going through a pain phase. It started up a week or two ago. Basically which ever part of my body has seen use on a particular day - it will be sore. My hands, arms and shoulders are particularly rubbish (the old pain that used to be called RSI back in the 80s, even though that diagnosis never made sense, has returned.) Oh and more headaches. Everything's still manageable with codeine, touchwood.

I am not even thinking about knitting although obviously I am typing still. But with lots of stretching and resting. But it will pass.

~~~

My ex has informed me that he has the piece of paper that will lower the divorce fee, so that's excellent news.

~~~

I might be achey and exhausted but it's a Sunday, there's blues on the radio and the sun is shining.

I'm still musing on last night's splendid dinner and I'm drinking coffee.

Dream Diary. oh god.

I've been dreaming about fishtanks again. Extra fishtanks! Leaky fishtanks! Fishtanks that need tending and fish I'd forgotten about in a tank under a table! A tank balancing precariously on a pile of living room junk! BROKEN AIR PUMPS!



A terrapin? I've never had a terrapin where did this terrapin come from?!



More fishtanks! More leaky fishtanks! More fishtanks that need tending and fish I'd forgotten about in a tank under a table! Another fishtank balancing precariously on a pile of living room junk! MORE BROKEN AIR PUMPS!


Fortunately no more terrapins.

I am in the process of applauding myself for doing various routine things that had fallen by the wayside a bit.

Sing ho for clean undies!

And now that those things are sorted, I want to sort everything else because I have reached that point where simply keeping things at baseline is too much like hard work. That point where you can't put away clean towels because there's an avalanche whenever you open the cupboard, and working out what to wear is laborious because you have no system just a pile of dark coloured things that could be anything and probably should be hung up because they're wrinkling, or maybe washed or maybe chucked because whatever it is you haven't worn it since 2004.

Systems. I love them they're so beautiful.

~~~

Also I appear to be in the process of setting up a little tank next to the bathroom sink to use for quarantining sick fish, as one of my bitterlings is looking a bit stressed and has a poppy eye.

I swear I am not crazy. Nor am I obsessed. Although I do concede I might just need a boyfriend.

(Just for the record, according to the fish fancier websites that I go to, a quarantine tank is essential and everyone who cares for fish - I mean, really cares - are horrified that when last surveyed, only 4% of people who keep fish have quarantine tanks, omg.)

I appear to be menstruating.

So after a down spell in which I was firstly too crook, and then too glum, to do anything much, now I'm feeling that urge to Do All The Things because everything is so important. Everything!

Okay that's a bit sad.

I saw a nice pattern for something, looked it up on Ravelry (lots of people sell their own patterns through Ravelry, or link to places where you can buy their patterns).

I found three different members offering the pattern for sale, claiming it as their own work.

Where did the day go? Seriously, I blinked and missed it.

Which might explain why I am absolutely starving.

I've done some transcribing. I am still not happy with life, but it did take my mind off things enough that I feel it's okay to call Big Sis and say hello.

Yes, I know people say you should "just reach out" - including Big Sis, but there's this thing called social currency and I worry about going bankrupt.)

Oh and I was coughing this morning, but apart from wanting to lay down and die, I'm otherwise okay now (at least in the physical sense). So I truly have no idea what's going on.

I appear to be crumbling. Getting too upset about little things. Normal measures don't seem to be helping. Will try and call Big Sis when I'm a bit more composed.
