0. I wake up from a rather cathartic dream and feel much better (both from the dream and from having 12 hours of sleep).

1. The treadling is such hard work that I feel disheartened. I can’t believe though that it’s either that inefficient or that my calf muscles are too weak to do it properly – not after leaving in hilly Yorkshire for 14 years. I systematically investigate different things and apply drops of oil in the right places until the movement is smooth and easy.

2. To have a beloved top to fall back on when everything else feels a bit meh.

3. Rather than being left alone while we go out for dinner, Lily goes to see her BFF Maggie-dog next door. We look out of the window and see the girls running around the decking together.
