    I’ve re-joined the ranks of the lucky ones with access to a working shower. Thought you might want to know.

  3. Holy hell, toilet+bathroom are starting to shape up and look mighty promising.

    In the meantime though, it’s been hovering around 30 degrees for days and having no access to shower is getting a bit old.

    A poetic and artful umbrella, Komorebi is based on a Japanese expression that approximately translates to “sunshine filtering through foliage.”

  5. Okay, I’m now pretty hopeful about getting paid something in the region of a few hundred during August for a thing I’ve been handling. Which means I can go slightly into the red/get groceries with credit card. Cannot exactly splurge on bathroom fittings, but can and will get a couple of things I want and need.

    Also, the rash I got from household gloves a week ago (idk if it was a reaction to latex or to something living inside the gloves, they’d been used for months) has pretty much healed, the  top layer of skin is peeling off now. Bought another pair from a different maker, labelled “sensitive”, and these didn’t give me any problems on first try at least. Thus do not have to rethink my entire approach to life just yet.

  7. Feral kitten update: still feral. And there’s 4 of them, not 3. One is somewhat less a scaredy cat than the rest, she (seems to be a calico hence she) will come and eat while you’re nearby, although giving you suspecting looks between bites, and also play a little whilst hissing at you. The rest won’t approach food with humans in sight and show no interest in toys. And momma cat is, well, not exactly terrified of humans, but wary and has a pretty set distance she’s comfortable with. But they do appreciate the extra food.

    My 14-year-old cousin who lives next door has been tasked to come and feed them daily and hang out so they get more used to humans.

  9. You know, the barrage of shit life’s thrown my way lately has been so much easier to tolerate when I’m not having SAD, PMS or not enough thyroid replacement meds. Yeah, I have under 5 € on my bank account and the next payday is over a month away. Yeah, I’m certainly losing the job I quite like and am fairly well suited for, and I have no valid plan B. Yeah, I haven’t had a shower since Monday night and probably won’t have one till Wednesday. And I’ve had to get up with an alarm each and every morning far earlier than normal for me, and haven’t had 8 hours of sleep in a week. And somehow despite all this life still feels pretty good. Not being depressed is fucking magical. I want a brain that works like this full-time.

    P.S. I have no regrets about having overspent  in June, I love everything I bought.

    P.P.S. Re-read my latest conference paper. It was a solid, interesting paper. I’m not shit at what I do.

  10. Hottest day of the year so far. Still not affected that much. Am broke as hell, but still have everything for making copious amounts of ice tea. Food-wise as well, my tendency to hamster up stocks of things that keep well whilst I’m not broke will be coming in handy.

    Sleep schedule is all messed up by builder dude who says he’ll come by 9 or 10 at best (he’s been late every single day though). I’m exhausted to the point of keeling over by midnight, and am struggling to make any use of  the waking hours besides cleaning.
