If you’ve read My Week In Happy before, you’re probably used to hearing about a whirl of social events, but this week has been a little bit different.
I did drop in to Helen Malarky’s fabulous Memento Moriatas soirée (part of MMU’s Gothic Manchester Festival) on Friday. It was my first visit to the The International Anthony Burgess Foundation – the perfect backdrop for the dark entertainment to come.
Kate Mayfield, read beautifully from her memoir ‘The Undertaker’s Daughter‘. She recounted how growing up in the home of her mortician father in 1960s Kentucky shaped her life . We lapped up Kate’s words and she very kindly thanked us for coming on Twitter.
Mostly staying in
Besides a visit to London for work this week, I’m also out every night from Thursday to Sunday night at a few different events – some related to the Manchester Science Festival.
So the weekend was very wholesome. Working out at the gym (even managed circuits on Sunday), cooking a delicious roast dinner and getting up to date with chores. Just the usual maintenance stuff.
Except, I currently have a very poorly cat. Cosmo is 16 (102 in cat years) and he’s been with me since he was seven months old. He a lovely big bundle of furry love. Cosmo’s been there for me through thick and thin – lived in three different cities with me in many different homes with different people, but I know he always loves me the best.
Since the beginning of the year he lost weight, it was very hard to notice because he is just so furry. But in the last month the weight loss has been drastic and I needed to spend some time with him to persuade him to eat.
Right now, I am away for work, and Cosmo has gone to stay at the vets where they have promised they will try sardines, chicken and tuna to try and get him eating again. So, digits crossed.
