Tosspot!

‘Sweet Thing/Candidate’ – David Bowie


Today was a tosspot! 

I walked to bloody Wisbech (3 miles) and it was fuckin’ freezing. 


I tried to hitch a lift, but none of the bastards would give me a lift, would they?  Where’s their sense of Christmas spirit?  Well, bugger me…!  What are these people like, eh?

The rest of the day was crud, but I finally watched Doctor Who again.  It was Part Fourteen of The Trial of A Time Lord (the last episode) and as it all seemed really important, I videoed it.


I haven’t seen an episode for about six weeks, so I was bit clueless as to what was happening, but it was okay; quite shocking in some ways.

Still no sign of last week’s missing diary entries.  Oh well, bollox!
