1. I get up and dressed, ready for a day at the studio, then I realise that I’m not champing at the bit to go and that I’d rather have a quiet day at home – so that is what I do.

1b. I listen to the end of the (John Wyndham – The Kraken Wakes) audiobook as I spin the last of the sea blue roving. It feels fitting (and is very enjoyable).

1c. 25g divided, carded, spun and plyed in a single afternoon. (I should have let it rest between spinning and plying but the thought of completion was just too strong.)

2. Lily and her John nap together on the sofa. She snores more frequently than him but he wins on loudness.

3. We walk down the street together in the darkness; Lily pulls me onto the safety of the pavement.
