I felt a bit at loose ends this week - I'd finished all the "big" books I'd been looking forward to (The Harbors of the Sun, The Bedlam Stacks, A Tyranny of Queens) and wasn't at all sure what to pick up next. But I came across some unexpected winners, wow!

What I Just Finished Reading

Lhind the Thief, by Sherwood Smith, which I had as part of the Light in the Darkness collection. Lots of really unusual worldbuilding, and great characterization.

Jackalope Wives and Other Stories, by T. Kingfisher (Ursula Vernon). In addition to the award-winning "Jackalope Wives" and "The Tomato Thief", there were lots of other delightful stories here. I loved the bird ones (of course.) $3.99 on Kindle today, and worth every penny!

What I Am Currently Reading

In Other Lands, by Sarah Rees Brennan, which I saw recommended by Martha Wells yesterday, and checked out on a whim. I have not laughed so hard in ages! Every single YA portal-fantasy trope is sliced and diced with consummate skill. I am very much looking forward to settling in to finish it this afternoon.

What I Am Reading Next

My hold of Golden Hill, by Francis Spufford, has finally come in! I have been waiting to dig in to this.

Question of the day: What books/movies/TV shows are you looking forward to right now?

She's not scared, though.

Everyone's fine except Poison, and Ray tells her he's had worse.

So there's really nothing to be scared about, and she's not.

She's seven now, probably, or close enough that she's too old to be scared of stupid stuff like that. Definitely too old to be scared of the dark. Ray doesn't say anything when she creeps into his room that night, though - just scoots over on the mattress and tucks his hair behind him so it's not taking up the whole pillow.

When Poison finally wakes up the next afternoon, wrecked and pale, the first thing he says is: "Shitfucking cocksucker."

The second thing, after Kobra tells him what happened, is: "We gotta teach the kid how to drive."

To update on the gym situation. I went to the induction yesterday and everything went very well.

Not that it got to a good start as we weren't booked on the system, but one of the men who worked in the gym was there and happy to give us the tour and work on our goals and memberships.

In all that took around 3 hours, and he was great. He did have some extreme views about nutrition and how often that could help when medicine can't. But, at the same time, he admitted that the views were extreme, and kept saying we had to research everything and not take his -- or anyone's -- word as gospel.

He made me feel really relaxed and worked out a programme for both me and James based on what he thought we could manage. Mine includes the recumbent bike, the treadmill, and leg strength work on the weight machines. When he was showing us the equipment he said he could tell I'd relaxed because when I was on the bike I was smiling, and I was. No one was looking, no one gave a damn that I was sitting there and doing exercise in a gym. It was just good and achievable and I felt a foot taller when leaving.

Then later we called into the local gym I'm going to be using -- the induction was done at the bigger one the next town over -- and I gave my workout a try. I also checked out where the lockers were, the changing room situation, doing those little things that had been worrying me, like starting machines off on my own.

Then this morning I walked down on my own and spent a good hour doing my own thing. And again, no one was laughing or looking and I just got on with things. I even tried out the arm weight machines and felt comfortable and happy as I moved to each new thing. I bought myself a water bottle but must remember a small towel next time because I had to keep wiping the seats off with the edge of my t-shirt which really wasn't a good look.

But I did it, and am chuffed at myself.

Thank you to everyone who gave advice and encouragement in my last post. Yesterday was the first time I'd ever stepped foot in a gym, and it was hard and scary. But today it wasn't at all, and I'd have never have got to that point without all of your help.

Oh, and this is the outfit I went with in the end. Modelled just after I'd left the blood donation place.
