Took Mother into town today - it felt like everybody was in my space, my whole skin felt itchy and imposed upon. We went to buy a satnav - yet after I paid (and before we had the item) the cashier said - "if it goes wrong you know you can't bring it back here don't you - you'll have to send it to the manufacturers" - So I told her to refund my payment and I wouldn't bother. I don't think she could believe it, she stood there "but... but..."

(I'm kind of aware I shot myself in the foot with it, because it was a half price deal and therefore good value, but the attitude was poor, I think the policy sucks, you sell me a faulty product then my contract is with you (I'm not talking about a year down the line, oh, and I've just realised she tried to sell me the extended warranty, so how would that work? Pay £30 extra and still not be allowed to return it to them? Hell I don't know.)

Triumph though, in that we set up Mother's kindle - she is an absolute technophobe and terrified of anything with buttons. But I set her up an amazon account and got her to 'buy' a few freebie books and to be able to switch on and read a few pages. I'll have to show here again tomorrow. And probably the next day, but I figure that repetition will eventually get her there :)

And otherwise? Finished Jack Reacher, I found it a little dissatisfying but enjoyed the journey.

I have 5 episodes of True Blood left. I'm not enjoying Season 6 as much as others, but I'm grading on a curve and am still having fun with it.

I know today doesn't fully count as cheerful, but I'm trying my damnedest and it's the best I've got.

Which was pleasant.

Used my floor steamer which was quite amusing.

Used my handwash to do the dishes because I've run out of fairy liquid.


Had planned to spend the day with a friend, but another friend didn't want me along - so I had a lazy day at home. Reading, steaming, eating chocolate and continuing the True Blood marathon.

I ventured into fanfic land today, in the spirit of gentle enquiry and there appears to be minimal Eric/Bill. which is surprising. Also Lillith's pubic area is, odd looking. Also has there been an episode without breasts?

I am spending the day with a different friend tomorrow. She does want me along :)

Lemon drizzle and gingerbread to be precise. I can vouch for the lemon, but am leaving the gingerbread to develop. Hopefully it will be good.

I am also reading new Jack Reacher.

Harry Potter's Aunt Petunia was a badass witch in True Blood. Which was a surprise. And now Maid Marion is in it, and Alistair from SPN.

I slept well last night. I think it was the alcohol, which I am now resisting.

All of my cats are in the house and have even been in the same room for hours at a time. It's the rain rather than a sudden bonding, but I'll take what I can get.

Seeing as I've been such a misery guts of late

(*barring emergency)

So, this week will be posts of happy making things only.

Today's is the fact I have a big old glass of booze that I am slowly working my way through.

And I have 5 series of True Blood that I am whizzing through. (apart to start season 5, don't spoil me.) I'm not sure how I managed to avoid this previously, but oh it is fun. Prettiness and ridiculousness and oh my god, did I mention the pretty and the sex and the funny. I am watching it at a shameful rate and the world is permeating my dreams all night - nothing concrete, just the general sense of being in that world. Mainly with Eric as a background character throughout.

I thought SPN was overwhelmingly full of the pretty, but this is beauty x a thousand, and they're all naked, all the time.

(Which leads me to wonder, why exactly did my colleague decide "I knew *you'd* love it." !)

I haven't done fiction yet, trying to avoid spoiling - but I'm not sure who I'd want to read about. I don't have a stand out pairing or character - I love them all and it makes me smile when I'm watching.
