Sherlock did indeed get his cast today. The doc said the swelling had gone down enough. I'm sort of glad - it's a lot more robust, and Sherlock can't try taking it off to look at his arm.
I think he's thought better of that anyway, now, after they removed his splint and gave him a bit of a clean, he realised it definitely does still hurt.
He was really good though, very brave, said thank you to the people in the plaster room. The cast is a really bright purple. I told him how lucky he was to get a coloured, fibreglass, cast. And somehow agreed I'd have a pink one if I ever needed one...
We went and got lunch after, and dropped in to get a coffee. I got a lovely syphon coffee - from Burundi. It was incredibly tasty. Sherlock wanted me to have another, just so the people had to make another one.
Here it is being made:
Then we headed out and found some glittery nail varnish and pens to write on his cast with, and finally returned home, where Sherlock promptly fell asleep on the sofa. The dogs did a good job of guarding him, or at least, sleeping by him.
Which explains why he wasn't tired at bedtime...
I've decided to have a few days off this week. Just feel like I really need them. So I'll work Monday and Tuesday, then have the rest of the week off to enjoy life.
