My phone had a bit of an accident. I'm waiting on a new sim, but until it turns up no sense in trying to call me on that number I've had for howevermany years. I was expecting to feel liberated but instead it's just been aggravating. I was stuck at a train station for 40 minutes today and instead of plugging into twitter or whatever I was reduced to playing lunch-hour text tennis with little sister #2 about the Christmas needs of my nieces. One of them is after animal dress-up, but not tiger or leopard or dragon because she has those already. What would be good? Pony? Ocelot? Terabird? Microraptor Gui?

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.
