Ten Years From Now: 21/12/1998



'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' - Frank Sinatra

I rang Maggie last night and then did some more drinking with the girls at work (Wendy, Pixie, Ulrika and Gina).  I then drank beer and at Chinese with Jerry Li.


When Jerry had gone, I (somewhat depressingly) rang Betty.


Just as I was about to go up to bed, Ray walked in, so we had a whisky each and talked till about 3am.


I went to bed, pissed out of my tree and slept most of today. 


I got a card from Lilith:


‘Happy Christmas, my love – may the New Year bring you joy’


I gather from this that, at the time of her writing, she had not received my long letter.  I will not dwell on this.
