Well, dammit. It’s dinner time and I’m still editing the podcast. It’s been one of those days.
Philly left me his wretched cold when he departed Wales for Paris. I felt the tingly sinus thing yesterday, and today I’m sure. I have definitely a cold.
Plus, the dog has just been manic because, you know, new kitty in the house. Wait, I don’t think I’ve mentioned the new kitty.
This lovely orange tabby showed up a couple of weeks ago, while Heather was visiting, and he just never left. We learned from a neighbor that orange kitty had been abandoned by the farmer down the lane, so we began feeding kitty outside. He got along very well with Truman and, after our guests were gone, we decided to invite kitty indoors. He didn’t need a second invitation. Tuesday we took him to the vet for the big snip and yesterday he got a name, and now Jasper lives with us. Jasper and Truman are delighted with each other. Unfortunately, Truman expresses his delight with his new friend by barking. And barking. And running in circles. And wagging his tail wildly. And barking. Which would be cute and endearing if it were any day but a podcast day.
So. My cosseted pets have been a barrier to recording most of the day. I know from experience, that if the podcast isn’t edited and uploaded by 6:00pm, it just ain’t happening. Now the cold is catching up with me and I am feeling tired and pathetic. Forgive me. I just want to toss back a LemSip, watch last night’s episode of Project Runway and go to bed.
Huge apologies for getting your hopes up, but it’s going to be tomorrow before I upload.
