It's been too long! I feel like I owe somewhat of an explanation: I had an intense, paralysing bout of anxiety that spun me out and stopped me doing a lot of stuff. I have started therapy again and (no shade to previous therapists!) it's already feeling way more effective than previous times I have had it. I strongly suspect this is because I now know what to expect and also the last few runs at it have "softened me up" and I'm able to talk about things in a way I wasn't before. Hopefully this will solve all my problems.
Good stuff has happened in the interim, though. CM has moved in with me, which has been going very well, the flat has been reconfigured quite a lot and it's looking very nice. The books are split into fiction and non-fiction. She has organised the fiction by colour; I have promised but not yet organised the non-fiction by topic.
We've done a lot of stuff in the last little while. One of the most exciting was something I've wanted to do for years: a wind farm tour. Got on a little boat and headed out to the offshore Rampion farm. Those things really are awe-inspiring up close. The blades on the turbines look like bones.
Feeling very tired at the moment. Some combination of the days shortening, clocks changing and the fact that I'm doing way more exercise than I was before. I am still going to try and start writing regularly again, though—because I'm Like That. I will also try and do something different as a newsletter because I like the idea of having a newsletter.
