Tuesday, March 25

The days were shaping up, frosty and bright. Perfect weather to fly.

Easter is done and dusted. Christmas before you know it.

I daren't check my bank balance, as work has been a little thin on the ground, of late. Although, deep down, I know that I'm only avoiding the inevitable.
I'm almost finished with the the things I wanted to fix-up before putting the house up for sale. Just a few fence panels to sort out and the garden. Then I can shave this fucking beard off!

My fridge is commonly empty, my walls very plain. Having not had a repeat of the collapsing episode, things could be a lot better, but they certainly ain't shit.

I'm also officially renaming The Girl's cat "Stoner" and her dog "Chewy". The dog's been doing his finest facial impression of Chewbacca since his return from the groomer's and as soon as I spark up a spliff, the cat starts purring around my legs and becomes my best friend. She loves like a shower curtain loves your leg.

The Girl has taken up knitting. I keep repeating to myself that it's all for her art course, and not because she's truly entered 'the comfort zone'. I have visions of over-sized sweaters in big chunky wool being given to me as Christmas presents. It'll be face masks in bed soon, followed by granny pants. I'm not ready for granny pants!

I've got a lot of emotion built up inside of me. I can feel it there, just simmering away, biding it's time. I had some over-spill last night when I found myself crying a little at Skins. I think I need to watch a really good moving movie and let some more of it out.

....as if the spell checker doesn't recognize Chewbacca!?

No one's every really interested in Granny Pants are they?

Fern said...

Knitting is hip, Bedshaped...and granny panties have secrets of their own...

Don't worry, one day you'll understand.

bedshaped said...

dita,
Grandads maybe?

fern,
Hip to be square, eh?
The granny pants secret can stay exactly that, if you ask me. Which you didn't, so I'll just get me coat.

Kia said...

I knit. It's therapeutic. honest.

Beth said...

I also knit.

It's very satisfying. You should give it a go...

bedshaped said...

kia,
Yeah, I can understand that.

beth,
I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it unless I had a old, blue cardigan on, with a pleated skirt and rocking in a chair.

knitting is cool, seriously! Now I needed a plumber who wasn't to be found but you are too far away. as for the fridge situation, fancy some curry?

Cat said...

I don't knit, or wear big pants, but I do spend all my free time marking essays in my pyjamas...

bedshaped said...

treacle,
Thanks for the offer, but I'm afraid I don't eat curry.
I'm repeating....knitting is cool....knitting is cool....

cat,
I wonder what you're students would say, if they knew?! Maybe you could drop a hint or two in the remarks you put on them.

surly girl said...

you don't eat curry?!

freak.

bedshaped said...

surly girl,
Nope. Never eaten a curry in my life.

Skins this week was a choker too. It's proper TV, is that. The characterisation of Jal in particular is fantastic, as is the actress' performance. Superb and, yes, moving.

swisstoni,
Skins is an amazing programme. Very under-rated.
