The Crimbum special. You’ll be so pleased that this ramble is a lot shorter than normal, it’s more a collection of thoughts.

This week I have been most thankful for not travelling on public transport and sitting in an office, talking carp on the phone to people who really don’t want to be speaking to me. If I am completely honest I don’t want to be speaking to them either. It’s a mutual relationship.

Lesson learned over the last 7 days, never mix hair dye in a bedroom.

Occasionally outside of the tube station near me, I see a man and his dog. Foolishly on Crimbum eve I popped to the shops which of course i regretted when confronted by thousands of others regretting that they had ventured out. While out I decided to try and do some good, by buying some sandwiches and dog treats. Once back at the tube station, the one man and his dog has gone. I popped back up a couple of times just in case he was back. Deep down I am glad that he wasn’t sitting in his normal position, hopefully he and the dog were somewhere warm and happy. I will get a few more sandwiches and hand over the dog treats in the new year. The amount of people currently homeless is increasing from what I have read. Not getting political I think 2019 is only going to get worse.

This Crimbum I received the gift that keeps giving, a cold. Damn you Santa you basket! The last few days I have spent a huge amount of tme in bed, feeling even more sorry for myself than I normally do. When family members should have been admiring my freshly dyed hair, especially after the mess I made at home (sorry MOZ).

And that’s it, after weeks, even months of preparing for one day of madness it’s all over. However the thought of so-called normality which starts all over again next Monday is something I really am trying not to think about. This might be the right time to hide under mums duvet and hope that no one notices me. Is there anyone reading this shiz who might like to put me out of my misery if so please contact.

Next week will continue to be a shorter ramble as I look back at 18 and forward to 19.
