An update today which probably won’t be that thrilling honestly, since all I want to do is gaze lovingly at the dog and nap. I realised on Monday evening, when I popped out to catch Halloween Kills, that I hadn’t actually left the house for almost two weeks – when Gypsy arrived. This was evidenced by the fact that she went nuts as soon as I put my shoes on and then escaped through the front door as I left and didn’t stop until she was almost at the main road, a few blocks up. Luckily she’s fine and no real harm done but it was a real heart in the mouth moment.

The more time I spend with her, the more I realise my inkling that we’d be alike in personality is true. She’s a stubborn old mule who’s easily overwhelmed, often grumpy and very into sleeping. This makes us best friends and she’s a true joy to have around. Our next project is to stop her terrorising the cat and get them living somewhat harmoniously together but it’s slow going. Mittens is fine and Gypsy is just curious to meet him but it can be dramatic. I feel very guilty too which I’m trying to deal with.

Otherwise, this month has been pretty quiet. I haven’t been feeling it really, energy levels have been low and I’m just trying to get through it. I’m off to get tattooed this afternoon so that will definitely help – and there are a few Halloween bits going on next week so it’s all good.

Blogtober 2021 however has not been going great. I’ll be lucky to have completed 50% of my goal by the end of October but oh well. I don’t always feel like sitting on my laptop after sitting on my laptop all day. You know how it goes. I want to listen to grisly podcasts and watch horror films exclusively.


How are you guys?
