'A hand in the bird is worth two in the bush',
Anyway, my first order of business is something I had forgotten to mention in my last post, it was the fact that last weeks wedding was made even more enjoyable by the fact that Megan is Australian, and that there were plenty of Aussies at the wedding. Fine, we may not have won the Ashes by then but the wedding was at the same time their batting collapsed so by toast time, things were looking dicey for the Aussies and we sure as hell have won them now! In fact my best mate Tony was lucky enough to come straight from the Oval to yet another glorious Prom concert
The other great news I had this week was getting back in touch with Derek (via email, well he is in Sweden). About 3 and a half years ago when I was still an inpatient in the Transitional Living Unit (TLU) at Putney Hospital Derek was the Glaswegian Male Nurse that once made me laugh so much, tea came out of my nose. Now at that time I was properly depressed and thinking back Derek (or Del) or as I later called him Delvis was probably the main reason I wasn't suicidal. It was a tough time made bearable by reciting lines with him from trainspotting.
Thanks for coming to see me this morning, it's so good for my spirits (which often can get very low).'
the other good news is that Illona and Mariusz (the couple renting a room) have bravely opted to take on the role of my carer in return for a cut in rent. Gawd bless 'em, this is a huge weight off my mind! Also, I've got a new walking video to upload (of me walking with Ian and just a crutch) once I've got it shrunk I'll post it up.
