I am learning how to play ukulele. I can play "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and almost "Bad Moon Rising" and almost "Sloop John B". Strumming is deceptive and I put too much pressure on the neck. But it's something.

This coming week I am going to start running. I have the Couch to 5K app and I found my running shoes and I'll go very early in the morning or very late at night when no one will be around to JUDGE ME. As if anyone is looking or caring anyway. But I'm trepidatious. But. I really really really can't go on in this state. Anna's been doing it and says the app is really good and if I start this coming week I'll be in my final week when she visits in August, and then we can go for a run together??? As people do??? I don't know. But perhaps I'll live longer and not be so uncomfortable all the time.

Six Feet Under is amazing.

I have been learning ukulele for an embarrassingly long time now and am still not very good, but I really like it and I get mental health points for both 'learning an instrument' and 'going to a group', so it's a double win even without being good at it.

GOOD LUCK WITH RUNNING. My sister did that app thing and really liked it too. It doesn't feel realistic that running is a realistic thing, but apparently it genuinely is. that's quite weird. You will be better set for an apocalypse if nothing else. Apocalypse points. (For a while I listened to the run zombies run app when I was walking the dog, and it nearly persuaded me to run sometimes. At the least it persuaded me to walk faster. I had to stop because I can't actually cope with background noise or having to wear earphones but apart from that it was lovely.)
