It’s raining so heavily that I’ve had to turn the lights on inside. I’m thinking about not going back to work and just trying to do as much useful chemistry as I can [unprepared] at home. The mini is loving it. She’s sat on the doormat gazing out at the garden and getting rained upon.
And every time I get up she looks at me expectantly, and I stroke her and she closes her eyes in bliss, and I think “SURELY I AM JUST WIPING THE RAIN INTO YOUR FUR???”
