I'M EXHAUSTED AND MY LEGS ACHE I don't know why ... had to go to the clinic today, specifically told to come at half past the hour late because then we could have a longer session ... the little Hitlerette at the desk blankly informed me I shall have to come back tomorrow because my name's not down at all. What on earth's happening there?? And I came all prepared. I had to write out a brief version of my life story so my interim worker could at least make some kind of head or tail of my "case" ... I tried telling Hitlerette it was a special appointment but she looked at me with a fatigued "everyone's special in their own eyes" gaze ...
A DOUBLE PAGE article in today's Mirror about heroin-addicted identical twins, one of whom hanged himself most certainly grabbed my attention today. Their mother wrote a book called Mum, Can You Lend Me Twenty Quid? (by Elizabeth Burton-Philips) and does a website in memory of her dead son: www.nickmillsfoundation.com. It's already on my links and it looks quite good.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE ... no not dumplings (though I have used up an entire packet of self-raising flour in under a month, which is faintly worrying ...) I've found a new kind of blog! twominutesthirtyseconds.blogspot Instead of illustrating each day with photos, every post is a Youtube type screen. The true meaning of video blog!
AND FINALLY: next instalment of my drugs story will be ready and probably already posted by the time most of you read this. I've just got to finish up scribbling it down ....
SCRIBBLING IT DOWN? It took ages! Now I've got 1500-2000 words to tap in. It's 14 minutes past 8pm as I speak, hopefully it'll be all done by nine.
MY NEW READING BOOK BTW: Mario Puzo's The Godfather. Fantastic!
Releasing the inner blinger in me - I have only just - and belatedly - realised that having grandchildren gives me a good excuse to release my inner blinger. So ... we took a trip to Homebase...
