After a few tummy rubs and a good night’s sleep on my own carpet, I feel much more like myself. My mum left lights on for me so that I didn’t blunder into anything in the dark and Marley Cat deigned to sleep in the same room, sort of nursemaid. Mum came downstairs in the middle of the night to check that I was okay. I rewarded her by doing the necessary in the yard then eating the fish and rice (real fish, not tinned stuff) she’d put out for my dinner but which I hadn’t been able to face. Those drugs had me off my head!
This morning I was looking forward to my breakfast and I let her feed me my painkillers in some cake. My mum makes very good cake so I could hardly refuse. More belly rubs and I’ll be resting for most of the day.
