Hmmm… I am in work today, so can only be brief as loads to do and normally you won’t get a blog from me on a Saturday!

Have only just discovered that Jane Austen had an unfinished book called ‘Sanditon’ and have now decided I want to have a crack at writing as her, what a crazy world we live in hey!? Bought Juliette Shapiro’s effort but am soooooooo involved in Mary Elizabeth Braddon’s ‘Lady Audley’s Secret’ and my screenplay/script of that my head might burst! I also ‘Emma’ yesterday on my Oxfam binge; it is from America 1964 and is the campest vilest cover ever! That’s how I like my books!

Erm what else? Oh is back in action! Right have work to do x

Poisoned Porridge

Have been outraged twice today... Firstly by the naughtiness of a lady from ‘Crussh’ ( my co-worker Kevin and I were feeling a little peckish at around 11am and we thought (as I had toothache) “ooooh, porridge would be lovely”. So off we toddled… well minced! We get there and on a poster outside is a lovely looking honey covered pot of porridge, yum, yum.

Kevin goes in first and hands her the pot simply asking what we needed to do next (well it had no flavourings on it) she starts ranting about banana’s, oranges, and bloody berry compote which we didn’t want so I said ‘oh no, no, no’ and she screamed ‘what do you want?’ Well how rude, we were shocked (Kevin actually jumped at her anger!) and then she cut the banana like she wanted it to be us – what a cheek!

The final straw came when we received the honey and banana porridge… stone cold. I mean for £1.75 you would think they would heat it! I should have asked for a discount of the added poisonous attitude I didn't want stirred in my pot!

Second vexation is that Tooting Broadway Vets have misplaced Thisbe’s ashes! I don’t expect that at £115 either! (Oh and Primark had nothing good in it!)

Mr Misery Guts!

Sadly my aim to write from a week and a half ago has gone slightly wrong in the fact that I have had a small tragedy in the form of Thisbe dying suddenly. Last Monday morning the poor thing had a heart attack and though one of the most distressing things I have witnessed, at least I was with her.

The tubby legend will be in my heart always and forever and its weird as it seems like a part of me has gone missing. I still have Hoyden thankfully. The Thisbe drama couldn’t stop there could it? I then couldn’t get a spade anywhere! Then when I bloody did I dug and after a foot was concrete in the garden… not meeting the councils requirements, so now shes being cremated bless her and I’ll be releasing her ashes in Merton Abbey Mills which is a lovely area, hopefully this weekend coming!

I am also feeling vile in the extreme after having no sleep this weekend, he who is to blame shall remain nameless but he knows who he is, and his drinking is getting TOO MUCH!

Then there has been the diva in my office. Miss ‘O’. Interviewed her… amazing, she started and it was just one wrong footing after another. Yesterday was the final straw when in an email she called me a liar and told me how to do my job. I had a big chat with her and shes decided to leave thank the lord! She should know there is only one diva in my office and on my team… me!

But week hasn’t been all bad…Got very drunken with Kevin, Polly and Richard on Monday night. We were being very rowdy and ‘faaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous’ in G-A-Y Bar (where Big Brother’s Michael was acting like he owned the place – hmmm) and Kevin did some hilarious ‘pulling’ dancing with a chav! So It’s not all been bad.

I am running severely late on my deadline for G.L.S! Ed hasn’t gotten back to me on my QR Magazine ‘Top Ten Break Up Tracks’. Jenny has got back to me saying she is loving Octobers Agony Uncle Column. Will update all on date it’s out… you fans you!
