...I went for two - count them - two walks, despite the rain, and I did some sit-ups. Polly's encouragement has helped me get over my aversion to exercise, and I suppose mirrors, though generally hateful, can be useful: I've just got tired of seeing my reflection in the mirror each day and hating it, which has spurred me into action. (We'd never had a mirror in that particular place before, where we see more of ourselves, from the side. Ugh.)

...Our neighbour came to the door with an open tin of jellymeat, offering it to us because we have cats and "they didn't want it". Ahem. "They", our pusses, have been moseying over into the neighbours house, where they're occasionally offered food, and given names by the little kids. 'Macey' and 'Rodney', or some such thing. o_O The neighbour father didn't seem to like our cats coming into his yard... perhaps they have charm enough to overcome reluctant people. They're brats and we shall have to tease them with their new names. Heh heh.

...It rained. And rained. And rained. And rained. And rained. And rained. And it is raining still! Finally I have been able to collect a bowl of rainwater in which to soak my crystals. Goodee. They've been neglected for so long.
