Flash and Raquel


118, QPD, CASTLEFORD

 

‘Wait!’ – Robert Howard & Kym Mazelle



 

Dear diary,

 

This morning my Dad came round to see us all, but it was hard because I didn’t know what the hell to say to him, and god, I miss my dad ever so much; so why the mental block?!

 

Gran Sugden came, also, and it was nice to see her.

 

This Dr Robert single’s great!

 

Later:

It’s about 2.30pm

 

‘Always On My Mind/Always In My House’ – Pet Shop Boys


 

OTHER RECORDS I LIKE:


That Gloria Estefan record

That Ten City record

 

But, oh my Emma.  I’m missing you so much.  It’s something I never expected to feel quite so acutely.  But I do, and after such a short time together.

 

What are you doing right now, Emma?

 

Miss you.  Miss you too much + it hurts.

 

I only wish you were here with me right now.  We could be happily in each other’s arms.  Just so happy.  So happy.

 

I await TUESDAY with bated breath.

 

Emma Goddard, this is the most incredible yearning I’ve felt in quite some time.

 

Later:

IT’S NITE TIME

 

‘C’est La Vie’ – Robbie Nevil



 

ONCE AGAIN, I’M IN BED.  ALONE.

 

Sunday Lunch was FAB.

 

I only wish I’d been in tonite when Louise + Kev came to see me.  That’s life.

 

Flash + I got together (again).

 

AND WHAT DID WE DO?

 

Talked about Berwin Groomstool. 

 

Raquel came over + we ate + played.

 

Flash + I are dying for some money to buy some records we ‘need’.

 

I’m back home now, but I loved seeing Flash.

 

Despite all this, I’m missing EMMA like crazy.

 

Later:

 

‘Still Shows’ – Wire



 

I have enjoyed YORKSHIRE this weekend, and Raquel + Flash + Berwin + NOT Elbow.  All very ace + lovely.
