Planning permission has been granted for the work at the back of our building. As we still hadn’t received the letter promising 3 months notice agreed in our meeting I tried to call, of course, to no avail, one of the nice (grrrr) officials was unavailable and the other away for a week.
I opened an email from the granddad this morning to news that he may have prostate cancer but not to worry - The GR will be devasted he’s working away from home today and doesn’t know yet.
And now water has just started pouring through one of the ceiling light sockets.
Running away to a Greek island is looking appealing.

The sun filters through a pale watery blue sky and reflects off the shiny brass windowsills of the pub opposite. The cleaner who makes them shine has just turned up and is shouldering the door to get in. Staff from the Charlotte Street hotel are having a fag out the back. The paper boy for the newsagents on the corner is wandering around looking lost waiting for the owner to turn up. Erbie is eating a woolly peach. A couple obviously still out from last night walk hand in hand up the road, she has mussed up long blonde hair and bare legs in heels. A manky pigeon walks across the deserted road. The music starts up in the café below ‘Street Life’ ha, how appropriate.

My horoscope this morning said treat yourself.
So I did.
If it had said exercise more and don’t eat chocolate well that’s different.
Shocking photo by me:
MaryJanes by Primarni £13, so good I got 2 pairs.
Mini Daps by H&M £4.99, so cute I want to ice them.
