Not much going on today

I've spent most of the day sitting at the computer, working, except for a few hours when we went over to my parents' for a meal. My brother has come home for the weekend - it was lovely to see him again (he's a junior doctor in a hospital in another town and I haven't seen him much since August).

J has been busy doing laundry, going to the supermarket, and generally tidying up. He is a star. I know that I don't talk about him much on here except when he's having a crisis, but he is. He's about the sweetest, funniest person I know, and when he's well he is incredibly organised and efficient.

He is also very gentle and completely adores animals. He has an affinity for cats which causes them to appear for a stroking session whenever we go for a walk. Although it was my idea to get guinea pigs, J loves them and does most of the work of looking after them. It's sweet to see him with them, although it's also mildly hilarious, as he's very tall and thin and the physical contrast is quite amusing.

He's my snuggle and I love him very much. I really, really hope he starts to see an improvement in his health soon. Enough of an improvement that even he can start to believe in it.

Your love for J shines through your posts. Just in case you didn't know. :)

*wells up a little*

Your posts about J both here and on LJ remind me so much of Himself. He will get well soon, I'm sure of it. Honestly, if Himself can do it, J can do it.

Much love x

Helloooo Sweet K! I've enjoyed catching up on all your posts -- gosh, a post a day and I'll be behind again as soon as I type this comment.

I still have a big smile on my face thinking of our visit. I have a few pictures and when I get them converted to .jpgs I'll send you copies.

I have my fingers crossed for J. I can certainly attest to what a sweetheart he is -- we so enjoyed meeting you both!

Clicked in from PastaQueen because you mentioned piggies! I think they're great. I see you are braving NaBloPoMo too...

Awww!

Well, who would have thought that mentioning the guinea pigs would attract a new reader! Hello, Amy, nice to meet you. I will now have to post gratuitous piggy pictures at the next opportunity...
