I'm getting face furniture, my eyesight having crept up from "don't bother with glasses" to "we can improve this". Unisex plastic frames, black on the outside, red on the inside. Just a touch of zing. Astonished at how glasses design has improved. I remember them as a despised necessity that never quite looked right. Now they're amazing statement jewellery.
We've put up all the fairy lights and I'm currently enjoying a lovely light bath. Considering getting some more lights in the living room all year round. I'm spending as much time as I can outside (autumn gardening - bracing!) but still feeling the grey and grim.
Also, I've been missing people. But the season of book launches is over now and I can settle back into grateful obscurity. I did the usual stupid thing of sending my mum one of my comics. She changed the subject sharpish when I mentioned it. Never mind.
