Speaking to Simone on the phone this morning. It cheered me up, even when I thought it wouldn’t.

Achieving things and doing practical things like buying more mouse traps and re-editing the book pitch. Especially as I thought I would do nothing today.

Also a really lovely, long WhatsApp conversation with Corinne about things from the last few days.

Going for a walk after work even though it was grey outside. The parkland walk was so empty, it was lovely.
