Well, its only July 7th – I think! Bit of commotion with the builders this morning. Woke me up at the unGodly hour of 9. 30. Arguing about work needing to be done.
Can you clear your kitchen by Wednesday? they asked. “Yes”, I replied. But only if the back room has been completed first. “But we need to have the kitchen cleared”, by Wednesday, they said. Of course, that was really impossible, I explained. But they said – they’re manager said – if you can’t co-operate, its back to Court. Well, just let them try! After about 9 years of the nonsense, I’m just about fed up with it. And so it goes on . . .! People can be really funny, you know. Guess its because money is involved. That always makes some difference.
Me? Very quiet night – apart from being so ‘rudely awaken’. I mean, smashing part of the hall ceiling down so early, is not really that funny. But they have painted bits of it, so I suppose that’s something. K. phoned me earlier to ask how I was. ‘Fine’ I just told her . . . I always will be! She knows about the ‘girl with no name’. But only she does. Nobody else. That’s the way I intend to keep that – even if I said I wouldn’t mention her again. She’s someone I can trust (as is K) but I’d never abuse her trust.
Well, everything has been really quiet lately – touch wood! The usual emails and correspondence, but apart from that . . . nothing! Can’t say I’m really bothered. Just nice to have a quiet life sometimes!
