    Rug man came and I'm sure he overcharged me, the theme of the fucking week. Probably cheaper to have bought a new one.

    (He wasn't early, he was late ... )

    Now I can go and get the last of my stuff and have a drink.

    We're all allowed to get pissed today, it's Royal Wedding Day.

    My transatlantic cold has turned into a bronchial infection again. There’s a stage of this which is quite disturbing. I get wheezy, and the noises I hear from within myself are uncanny. Last night I was woken to sound of a child crying. Being half asleep and pilled up with antihistamines it took me awhile to establish that the sound was coming from within my own diaphragm. I spent, what seemed like half the night but was probably much less, attempting to make the child go away. No matter how I tossed and turned it kept sobbing. Sitting straight up in bed was the only position that worked. Eventually I fell back to sleep that way, but awoke feeling distressed and useless. I hope she/he doesn’t return tonight.

    I got this far and our cat knocked over the bag of groceries that's on the floor beside me. We both jumped as if the shell had exploded.

    Wishing you a calm and restful night, AdC. Having let it slide down the to read pile, I'm about to finally start on Ringolevio. Will I be able to handle the, ahem, truth?

    Yes, wishing us all restful nights tonight.

    My neighbours have been more audible tonight, but it’s a Saturday night and they’re not above my head, just out in the garden under my bedroom balcony, and adjacent to me.

    Ha! Don't worry. It was the sixties, when there were no truths outside the Gates of Eden.

    Saw the Bluetones last night. Despite popular opinion, I think they're great.

    I woke up to a massive wave of laziness. I'm going to do almost nothing today and try and assuage my guilt through the medium of eating croissants.

    I went to a live-to-cinemas broadcast of a Charlatans concert on Friday. Despite the slightly odd premise, it was very enjoyable.

    Similar plan here. I ache in every muscle.

    I let the cat out for a little explore. Despite having great cat friendly routes available, she managed to get stuck on next door’s roof, and started crying. I had to climb onto a garden table to get her down. I also took a chair upstairs to the terrace. That’s enough exertion for the day. Tesco delivery is coming at six.

    That deserves applause.

    Belly are coming to Cardiff in June. Mrs Thistle has had a note up about it for ages. I ought to ask if we're going.
