I was supposed to be going to my aunt's today, but Kayleigh has come down with a cold and feels terrible and as she was my lift the visit has been postponed until next weekend. I suspect she's got the same cold I've had since last week, not enough to knock you off your feet but enough to make you feel rough. I was feeling much better today and thought I sounded it until Kayleigh said I should phone Irene as it still sounded like I was sick. But no, she can have that job. Not that my aunt will be mad we're not going, just, she always buys and makes a load of food. Hopefully she won't have started to cook yet and it can all be frozen.
It does mean I need to plan and make something for tea. I was planning on being fed by Irene and her sending leftovers home for James.
Which means an unexpected day in for me today. Though, I may take a quick walk to the chemist to pick up my new compressions that were delivered there yesterday. It was raining hard earlier but the sun has come out, so it's a nice afternoon to get out.
In the last few days we went to see Gemini Man, which was okay. Though the young Will Smith was a bit weird. Well done for the most part but still weird. James did get to be dramatic on that visit and fell up the steps at the cinema. Because he can't straighten his arms he can't break any falls so when he goes down he goes down and has to hit the ground. There wasn't a thing I could do as I was behind him on the steps and just had to watch as he bounced off the seats and landed in the aisle. He was fine, nothing hurt at all, but it was a bit of a dramatic moment.
Then two nights ago he was drinking a can of pepsi max in bed and managed to drop it. To say I was unamused was an understatement as I was woken up and had to strip the bed. Thankfully one of the things we got from mam's was a super king size quilt. We've never opened it as while we have a superkingsize bed, we only have a king quilt as finding superkingsize bedding is a bit difficult. So that was opened and used and it's a really nice quilt. It was very expensive when mam bought it -- why she did so I'm not sure, she only had a double bed but I guess it was just part of her online shopping addiction she developed -- and is made of this crinkly material that's very strange. It's thick, very warm but rustles like plastic. Thankfully it can also be jammed inside kingsize bedding, so no need to buy more.
I had a lovely walk in the park a few days ago. It was good to get out in the sunshine and stretch my legs. I did a loop that took me down to the river, and when I got there all the swans that had been lurking on the field above started streaming down. There were easily hundreds of them and they'd obviously become used to people feeding in that area. Sadly I had no food to give, so had to inch my way through the river of swans all the time being given beady looks from swans that looked like they wanted to peck me down for grain. If you haven't seen on Insta, some photos of that are here
Supergirl has started again. And the Good Doctor, The Walking Dead and many other shows both new to me and old favourites. And what am I watching during the day? The Christmas movie channel. Man, I'm a sucker for them, I love every single clichéd stupid moment of them. Yesterday James asked why I like them so much, especially as they seem to recycle the same actors and plot. And it's just, they make me feel cosy and content even while knowing 99% of the time they're painting an unrealistic picture.
I also wrote words yesterday. Who knows, I may actually finish that bodyswap one day.
