Things here are quite intense. I imagine they are at yours too.

Let me know if you need some time out? We could have dinner or something. I don't want to leave here for the entire night, but a few hours would be okay.

Sitting in the hospital with Addy in the few hours before she can go home, and what a ride. First, the guest nurse called me her father. Then when Addy straight up informed him I'm not her father I'm the baby's father's partner, the nurse nodded and then slipped me his number.

What is happening!?

To say Addy was delighted and amused is an understatement. She keeps calling me 'sugar daddy' and I think my soul is leaving my body.

Oh wait-

Yep, he messaged me on Grindr.

Sometimes I think leaving the forest was a mistake!

Got the 700K. Can I use some of it to fix the roof here? The rest of it, I know some charities, but I am sure the rest of you would like to nominate some too.

There's something else I wanted to mention- In the past when I have wanted to avoid pain, I have occasionally turned to substances. Opiates tend to be my substance of choice. And a few times recently I've typed out a text to Codeine, though I haven't sent it.

I'm telling you so I don't do it. I don't want to. I don't want to slip away. So, I guess...I don't know. I don't even know. Check in with me? It'll keep me from fucking up.

Well. Today I looked in the mirror and didn't instantly hate myself. It took a second or two.

That's progress.

Our food bank is running low on supplies so I'm going to go hit up stores for their castoffs while I look like this. Really lean on the sympathy. Might as well use it, right? Now here's the question, collar or no collar?

Stutely's going to redecorate the bathroom! He's going to get someone in to do the plumbing, and he's going to take care of the rest of it. Any ideas before I give him free rein?

I've been going over my budget. If I buy less fancy wine, and unsubscribe to my cheese of the month (don't laugh at me) thing, I should be in a much better place to help out financially. I'll start saving as much as I can now! Not to the detriment of myself, before you get worried.

How's today?

Me, the three kids (that's me including Billie, I didn't randomly forget to tell you about a third one), and Amelia went to join Bob and his entire family to watch the inauguration. Bob's wife, Colleen, made us all some delicious ham, and we all brought side dishes.

Michaela chatted with Colin and his husband Emmett about drag shows for hours. Turns out Bob's daughter Sophie is an artist as well, so she and Billie and Daniel had a lot to talk about. It was just so nice. Normal. Quiet and calm. Amelia fell asleep on my chest during the parade. Bob wore a pride flag as a cape. Colleen tried to feed me no less than four slices of pie.

A good day.

Home how. I have Scarlet with me, and we're settling in. I've ordered groceries which should be arriving soon, since there's very little in. And then I'm going to cook something delicious.

Not really much else to say, is there. Happy Christmas, I suppose.

I knew it was only a matter of time, I just sort of hoped it would be a...longer matter of time-

Daniel and Michaela's mother had been calling Daniel over and over because he hadn't been picking up. He didn't know how to confront her with the whole...me not being dead business. He finally answered, and now she knows I am back in their lives and wants to come here.

I don't want to see her. She hurt me. She took my kids from me. She hurt them. I'm afraid I might fucking kill her.

I do not know what to do.

My old sewing kit is getting a bit of a workout! I usually wear my clothes and fix any wear and tear until they can't possibly be fixed any more. But I've undertaken a new project to sew little pockets into all my shirts. It's going to keep me busy for a few days at least!

We should have a dinner! Family dinner and everyone can come over!

Hi, Elaine! How are you?

This might sound like an odd question and honestly, feel free to tell me to bugger off if this isn't okay-

I know you spoke to Stutely about the sheriff. I don't know how much he told you, but Merlin sort of informed me, via prophecy, that he saw me in the sheriff's clutches. Last time that happened he starved me for three weeks. So I'm a little-

I'm a lot panicking.

Is this something that's even possible?

God, this is probably stupid...

My granddaughter called me 'gampa' today, and I think this must be what heaven feels like.

Tomorrow my son has a gallery opening and I honestly don't know how to control my emotions about it. I keep thinking about it and weeping at really inopportune moments, like during a sermon. I'm just so proud of the both of them, and the people they are and everything they've accomplished and Amelia called me gampa so if you need me, I'll be on cloud 9.

I may be over-excited for this much-needed escape from the city for a weekend. I want to make fire-roasted salmon and veggies, and I went to the shops to pick some up. Ended up with salmon and steak. But also weenies, because we can't be too fancy in the forest. And 'weenies' makes me laugh.

I can't seem to narrow down which books to take. And since it's autumn will I need warm clothes or cool ones?

Have over-catered for tea and wooly socks.

Should I pack a sword? Is that weird? I think it might be weird...

Hey. Dan has a gallery opening in two weeks. Will you come with me? We can dress up and swan about on each other's arms, drinking champagne and pretending not to be forest folk for five minutes. Making comments about art like we know what we're talking about. And being proud of Dan.

I'll even let you take me shopping beforehand. You can dress me up.

How are you? I've been sleeping okay since the other night. Fell asleep on Stutely's shoulder last night.

I miss you.

[Away from baddies]

Haven't really been able to sleep for the last several days, but at least I'm making good use of that Netflix subscription I had very nearly forgotten about. Francis came over today and I think I was going on about 46 hours awake when we decided to watch The Great British Baking Show for some nice distractions. Only it was so nice it put us both to sleep. I had dreams of cake and bread. We only woke up when Andrew called to check in after work.

Now I just feel restless, but I can't sleep because I just woke up.

I fucking hate this.

[On Monday, after his night with Erato, the lunchtime selfie he sends Will is of himself eating a taco, followed by a text which states that he hadn't really thought that choice of cuisine through, had he? He didn't even realised the joke until he had sent the damn selfie. The next day, to be equal opportunity lewd with food, he gets a sub sandwich, and the selfie he sends Will is of himself pretending to deep throat it like any truly mature adult would.]

Well, you were right. You were so right. I shouldn't have gone, but it's too late now because I did, and-

Will, Merlin told me a few things and I really don't want to tell you because I want you to just be able to enjoy your happiness and excitement right now. But I also don't want to keep something from you again.

As you can see, I'm at a bit of an impasse. Should I tell you? No one is in immediate danger. Do you want to know now, or in a week or so?

I was chatting to Merlin who told me of a prophecy he had. And I can't verify the accuracy, but he told me that Lucifer is no longer interested in the twins. He was too embarrassed by the whole...bagel incident...

I don't know that his prophecies are every set in stone, but he's told me my future before and it was correct. I thought I should let you know. It's hope, anyway.
