Well, its Sunday and a beautiful day it is as well. I have to go out in a minute as the store shuts at 5 and I need a couple of things.
Gareth came last night instead of Friday and Patsy turned up with her new husband as well. Might be a good time to inform everyone here, that Patsy has agreed to be new Secretary – I am handing the papers over tomorrow, then it will be really official. I am still looking for a new private Secretary though as Patsy has her own job to consider as well. (Its alright, both Patsy and K know this so nobody is being ‘deceived’!). So, anybody got any ideas or suggestions please let me know. It has to be a girl though. And ‘no’ , no ‘Womens Lib complaints please as she’ll be doing it for love, not for money! I’m actually being serious, folks. I’ve been so inundated with Society work lately, that I could do with some help. I don’t care what her ethnic back-ground only that she should care about the subject and care about getting involved.Don’t get me wrong, I still get a lot of help (Gareth’s help has been invaluable for example) but I know everyone would appreciate a little more freedom form Society queries and other obligations. So, just let me know. Don’t be shy!
You know, all this work is enough to drive you to drink! Actually, a couple of cold beers or a glass of wine or two actually help me to relax. But I’m not a ‘registered alcoholic’ as has been suggested elsewhere on the net by a particular irate person. ‘Registered’ where, or to whom or by whom, they are careful to avoid saying. The reason why is obviously because they know this is not true. Well, it merely adds to all the scandal, I suppose! All this going around about me being some sort of ‘cult figure’ is not true either. I have always condemned cults, and certainly don’t want or need any ‘followers’! I have always just been myself and never pretended to be something I’m not, like some people I could mention. I really don’t need anybody in that respect. I am fully self-sufficient! Still, I suppose people will continue to talk about me or feel obliged to write things about me. But I don’t really care that much really. I guess its when people don’t feel the need to talk about you at all, that you might have cause to worry!
I have got to go out and buy a vacuum cleaner (maybe tomorrow). Now I’ve got new carpets, I suppose I’d better try and keep them clean even if I can hardly move in most of the clutter at the moment. I went out a little earlier and saw ‘my’ girl at the launderette. She was standing outside smoking. “Glad to see somebody else has got good habits”, I said. She just laughed! Actually, I’ve got to try and stop smoking in the street so much. People keep coming up and asking me for cigarettes and it gets expensive at ₤5. 30 a packet. My friend H is still ‘on holiday’ at the moment so I’ll be glad when he comes back and bringing me ‘duty-free’ ones again. Costing me a bloody fortune at the moment!
Well, everyone. That’s all the boring news. Something’s bound to happen tomorrow. It always does!
