Saw Gareth last night. Few final things to do to the new book. He couldn’t come on Friday again so I had that evening off.
But was quite a hectic weekend, what with one thing and another. On top of that I ‘messed’ my sleep patterns up, or rather ‘non-sleep patterns’. I guess part of the problem is, I have never had any respect for the laws of ‘man-made’ time, which doesn’t help.
Well, I can certainly say that I’m not a ‘creature of habit’, and I certainly abhor petty rules and regulations.
As an example, I got on a bus last week holding an unlit cigarette when I showed the driver my pass. “You can’t smoke that on here – it’s a thousand pound fine”. “I know”, I said. “But you can’t get fined if its not alight!”. Some people behind me laughed. But I really didn’t think it was funny. Such mentality! I mean, I could understand if its was alight, but it must have been obvious I didn’t intend to smoke it!
Anyway, human non-intelligence aside: I have to go out later to get some food in the place (knowing my luck, I’ll get the same driver!). I didn’t even realize until I went into the kitchen and realized there was nothing to put in it! Its probably because a friend was lecturing me on the phone about not eating enough. She said she was concerned because I never kept my promise to eat a proper meal and that I really needed somebody to ‘look after me’! I just told her that nobody would put up with me as I was too set in my ‘non-ways’. “Well, I have to”, she said. And with that I tried to change the subject!
I don’t want to sound repetitious, but it really is bloody cold again. Although the back room has now been complexly redecorated, its really too big to keep warm properly. The front room isn’t so bad because it’s a little smaller and there’s gas in there; but the problem is, I have to use the back room as well as there’s still so much stuff in there to get sorted.
But I open a bottle of wine by the gas fire now. If anybody is wondering about the beer; well, it’s a bit too cold to enjoy a beer at the moment. That’s a warm weather drink really.
So, with little other news other than that, I suppose I’d better get ready for my outing before the darkness sets in. Not to mention any ice!
For the moment,
