Ten days since my last post...

In that time there have been the following events:

Helped arrange a funeral.

Went to Hounslow police station to collect Dave's personal effects. Are criminals and the relatives of criminals really as stupid as they seem? Every time I've been in a police station and stood in line waiting to see someone, I've marvelled at the litany of stupidity I overhear. One guy who was reporting while awaiting trial and three brothers who were there as guardians of a minor, couldn't even explain why they were there.

Last week Pink Witch and I went away to stay with the very lovely Jo and Jem (he's lovely too). I didn't realise how much I needed to get away. A few days of indulging in Dark Orbit, wine, seaside charity shops and very good company was just what the Doctor ordered. Leaving was a real wrench... I want to move into J & J's caravan for the summer (or forever), with a few cases of Rioja a few good books and a pile of fire wood.

Back home today. Hair to dye, Dave's mother to visit, post to deal with. I've already noticed one from the tax man, I'm putting off opening that because I just know they'll of got more things wrong :-( Dealing with that isn't high on my list of fun things to do.

Tomorrow is Dave's funeral.
