Plans for the Autumn

‘Live and Let Die’ – Wings

I had a nice day at Elbow’s today and he’s been very generous.  He’s a nice lad and I’m glad to know him.

This is my last night here at my Gran’s on Queen’s Park Drive in Castleford, W. Yorks.  Tomorrow, Jack and I ride home to East Anglia on the train.  What shocks and changes await me in Wisbech St Mary, Cambridgeshire?  Who can say?  All I know is that I’m very poor after my holiday – a tenner or so to my name, is it?  Where’s the bugger gone?!

So, the return home.  I hope to be working at the lorry yard of a Saturday morning from now on.  I need the cash.  I might even start driving lessons now I have a provisional licence.  Jack’s also giving me his weights + dumb-bells so I can do some muscle-building in the privacy of my own crap bedroom.  And then, of course, it’ll be time to go back to College.  Shame I can’t understand a damned word of Mansfield Park – AND IT’S SO FRUSTRATING!

Oh, but lovely DOCTOR WHO is back next week. 



That’s nice news.

But what else lies around the corner?

I hope to see something of Maggie.  I like her a lot.

I hope I see something of Natalia Wnek.  She’s going soon.

And, of course, there’s BM Wasp.  I bet she’s slung her hook out of Wisbech by the time I get back, or has a boyfriend.  Either way, I expect any contact between us has been once again severed.

I might go to The Angel tomorrow night.

Thank god for beautiful life.  It’s gorgeous.
