Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson
Mood: up and down
Word of the day: plenilune – time of the full moon
Couldn’t sleep so took a walk as the huge, full moon was hanging at the end of my street with a quizzical expression. While pigeons waddled in the gutter and foxes walked in the shadows at my side, all of us quiet. It was the glimpse of sanity that I needed.
Since then it’s been downhill.
At 10am, Neville cooked up a batch of pork chops while lecturing cheerfully at Jinjing about women’s rights through the ages. I went into the kitchen at one point and she was glowering at him over her cereal while he remained blissfully unaware, chattering without pause.
As soon as he went out, Jinjing put tape over her door, sparkly sellotape so she knows if anyone has been inside. Neville had left some pork chops on the side, and she threw them in the bin. I tried not to yelp, that was a lot of food.
Does that count as an act of war? Are we at war now?
