‘Here, There and Everywhere’

Well I see its all been happening ‘here there and everywhere’.  As usual, myself caught right in the middle of it!  I am talking about ‘Internet Madness’, in a way; you know,  ‘diary gossip’ sometimes taking the place of reality; rather like stories in the Sunday newspapers sometimes do.  I guess some of these accounts and stories are being written by genuine people – and not just journalists who are paid to exploit sensationalism.  As I said, a lot of this seems to be at my own expense, in that just my name alone seems to encourage the most absurd proclamations.  But still, it is all good fun I suppose,  although its just a good job I have some sense of humour, while some other people most definitely have not!  It’s a pity really, as I have always said that one of the most valuable attributes in Life is the ability to laugh at ourselves.

I have always tried to do this, at least.  And if some people find a particular situation ‘funny’, it invariably usually arises from their own interpretations.

‘Little ‘ol me’, I normally just sit back and do nothing.  Well, I haven’t even had enough time to ‘sit back’ recently;  as fast as I glance at the Internet, somebody else is demanding some answer!

Well, we are into Sunday, and in about a week all this heavy building work should be over.  It seems an eternity since it all started spasmodically back in 1999; although I guess 9 years is not so great in the ‘greater scheme of things’.

K phoned me earlier to ask if I was up to date on everything.  ‘Yes’, I told her, just as everybody else seems to be!  She’s coming over towards the end of the week anyway, and I hope we can sit down and have a ‘long evening chat’.  She has apparently had a little trouble at work involving promised money that hasn’t materialized as promised in her contract, so I hope we get a chance to talk about that as well.  She also wants to see how the books are coming along, and I think she’ll be pleasantly surprised about that.

At least she’ll be fairly comfortable in the back room now.  Even that is so much quieter since its been ‘insulated’ with wall-to-wall plastering and a new carpet.  Should be much warmer in the winter as well.

So, with that I finish everyone.  If I’ve forgotten the odd email, please forgive me, they will all be answered.  Its just such a damn hard life being a writer!

For the moment,
