“Are you ready?” Klaus asked finally.
“No,” Sunny answered.
“Me neither,” Violet said, “but if we wait until we’re ready we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives, Let’s go.”

Cafe Dog has had a hard time of it lately.
While I’ve been feeling so poorly there have been no cafe outings. None at all.
I’ve had a string of terrible days, with misery heaped upon misery. Infections. Drugs. Drugs that caused lyme herxing. More misery. Insomnia.
But last night I slept well. I mean really well. And Cafe Dog knew it.
He was bent over me this morning, waiting for me to wake up.
As soon as I cracked an eyelid open he began his happy dance.
“No, mate, we’re not going to the cafe today,” Ben said.
“Yes we are,” I said, getting out of bed. “It’s now or never!”
So I got up and dressed (in clothes closely resembling pyjamas but with a stylish jacket over the top!), and we now seated at our favourite table at our favourite breakfast cafe. The pain is manageable because all my fabulous drugs are doing a great job. I get to have a decent coffee, and Harry gets to say hello to all of his adoring fans. I get to write my blog from my travel laptop as I sip my latte. It’s a mental health win for us all.
