I got woken up by a storm. I was waking up at that point anyway but there’s nothing like a clap of loud thunder to wake you up instantly. The cats were sat right next to me. I can feel Mimi pushing herself into my side so they must have been frightened by the noise. They were sat like that just before I heard the noise. They probably could hear it in the distance before it even got here. I ended up with the wandering cat in here for a few hours yesterday. That was due to the weather being a bit wet and thundery. I had to put him out yesterday evening because mister was a bit hostile toward him. He can tolerate the cat for a bit until he starts telling him it’s his house get out. I just didn’t want to send the wandering cat back out in the awful weather straight away until it had calmed down a bit. I don’t think the thunder would scare that cat now as he seems a bit deaf. He is getting on a bit so it’s not surprising. He’s been putting his chin on the ground outside recently. He most likely goes by vibrations rather than sound now. He is starting to look elderly now. He seems to be a lot more boney looking than he used to be. He’s been around here longer than I’ve lived here apparently. That’s nearly 10 years so he must be at least 12 to 15 years old. That’s old for a cat, especially one that chooses to have no fixed home. He isn’t boney because we don’t feed him. He’s spoilt by everyone in this block of flats.
I feel quite down today. The lack of night sleep isn’t helping. I have slept a huge amount today. I still feel wiped out. I woke up hot and uncomfortable. I can’t really not blame myself for that because I left the electric blanket on as I felt a bit cold before I fell asleep. I feel cold a lot. That seems to happen more when you’re tired. I can’t actually be as cold as I feel otherwise I wouldn’t wake up sweating. It feels like I go hotter when I’m asleep whether I have the electric blanket on or not. I had a random dream again but I don’t remember details. I know that it was full of people I didn’t know. I’d never met them in waking life. There’s a thing that says we only dream of people we have actually seen in waking life. I don’t believe that. These people were definitely no one I’d seen in my waking life. Unless I have subconsciously seen faces which resemble them and that is how they ended up in my dream. I do know that someone said my writing wasn’t descriptive enough after I handed them a very short price of writing on two pages. I think that it was meant to be book manuscript size. Who cares? It never happened in reality… it was just a dream so I actually never failed in waking life.
