Day 5

Liesel and Jojo dropped by today, bless them. Fiona doesn't know and would go ballistic if she did – court order and all – but my gorgeous girls still love me. They brought some presents, mostly of the edible kind, helped me clean up my place, and played cards. I taught them poker at an early age so they robbed me of every match stick in the house. They stayed a good few hours. I was sad to see them go and cling to the memories of their laughter, touch and smell.

The apartment is very empty tonight but I decided to lay off the wine for a change.
