A bit cooler today. Due to the heat I’ve stayed in every night this week. Can’t remember how long it’s been since I did that.
After work met up with Norman to discuss the new Plums cover. Stayed for an hour, chatting, which was really pleasant.
Back at home made veggie burgers and ate and watched telly. Was watching Red Sorghum when Paul arrived. He ate and we talked a bit as we watched the film. Kate was at her parents’ giving our household some space; she’s very thoughtful, I like her a lot.
Despite the fact that it was cooler today, I couldn’t sleep. At 1.30 I awoke and stayed awake for almost 2 hours. A lot of thoughts were in my head. Job applications, living abroad, The Plums CD cover and of course Chris. Thrashed out a lot of stuff in my head, and didn’t cry. It was quite cathartic.
Thought about the fact that a year ago I was deliriously happy, painting a Valentine’s Day card for Chris. The happiness didn’t last very long. By April I was discontent and often miserable.
The pastel picture in the middle of the CD cover was by one of the band, possibly Caroline. I contoured it and put in on a bright red background, then added some neat, small, white type. I still think it looks OK. I did one other cover for them, but never got a copy. They were a fun band.
