Sunday photos: Chai, moss and a toadstool

Her Royal Chainess continues to recover slowly. We don’t really notice a change from one day to the next but we notice from week to week. She’s walking more easily and meyowling less. The wonky leg is noticably less wonky, and she can jump up onto beds and sofas. We’re giving her the run of the house now, but for the last couple of days she keeps wanting to go out. Out into the big wide world! We’re not letting her do that yet, and I’m twitchy about her going out until she can sprint away from cars and dogs, but it’s a vast improvement from last month when she wanted to hide in the smallest corner possible.

It’s been a quiet week as regards writing. I’ve queried two agents about representing my novel, but it’s far too early for me to hear back. It’s such a slow process that it’s quite normal to have anything up to 10 queries out at any one time, and I hope to query another two next week. I’ve worked on some short stories for competitions but not submitted anything yet although two of them have to be in by Friday. It’s enough of an excuse to avoid housework, I suppose.
