I just watched the Dr. Who episode Blink.
I didn’t want the small ones peering over my shoulder, and my sister mocks the very idea of Dr. Who, so I waited until I was alone.
And now it has sunk in that I am alone in a very large house. Alone except for two cats who like to make strange unidentifiable noises behind your back. Oh, and open doors you think you’ve closed.
Maybe this wasn’t very well thought out.
UPDATE: I can now report for certain that it gets light here at about 4:30 in the morning. This is due to the fact that after staying up nervously until 1 a.m. I fell asleep; only to wake up every 15 minutes, scan the room, and fall back asleep. Until the sun came up.
