Hi, people. It’s really late. Something past eleven.
‘Stigmata Martyr’ – Bauhaus
What have I done today?
Well, I got a really ace letter from Amelia. Heavenly! She’s so great, so I’ll have to write to her after XMAS. Thank you so much, Amelia, you’re great. I really like you.
And I’ve got cards from Gran Sugden and Gran + Granddad Winterfood. What’ll the Postie bring tomorrow, I wonder?
‘Kings Of The Wild Frontier’ – Adam and the Ants
Today, I got a lift to King’s Lynn with Betty, feeling a bit crap. Scruffy. Messy… erm… I saw Angie Jones briefly, to say ‘hello’ to. And I saw Sarah George in WH SMITH’s. We said ‘hello’, both looking and feeling slightly embarrassed because we were with our respective mum’s, I suppose. She’s nice. Too nice, really. In CHELSEA GIRL, I saw Simone. She’s strange…
In Lynn, I bought: Computer game for Jack, Record Player toy for Chip, curling tongs for Betty, and an office set for Freddie. That’s it, I think. Afterwards, I had a £5.10 meal of ‘Chicken Kiev’ in The Duke’s Head with Betty. Very poshe. Stick that up your arse, Burger Me!!! My day is to come, Mr Burger Me Jr; and when it does, you shall see all hell set loose upon you.
So. I now feel a little Christmassy…
