This last few days I have once again strayed from the "Normal", if there is such a thing for me??, path and headed down the other one, you know the one I mean, where all things positive turn miraculously into negative and where trivial little irritations get blown up out of all proportion. In the scheme of things this is quite minor but none the less equally annoying. It's not been brought on by anything in particular but more so a culmination of lots of small annoyances such as the car and the lack of a bedroom/bathroom still and there's obviously the hot topic at the moment, your friend and mine, the one and only, Spell caster Of The Year 1978, Merlin. I guess if I had the time and felt extremely annoying then I would list all the tiny little other things that all together end up directing me down this bloody road but I don't particularly want to scare off anybody that's still remotely interested in reading about my rantings. Do you know, I wouldn't mind so much if the view along this road was halfway descent but it is far from it. It's more like driving through a dark, damp, dead straight, humungously long tunnel, but every now and then you can see what looks to be a light at the end of it. I seem to then go in slow motion towards it, in anticipation of this being the chance I have to break out, back into real life. Quite often though things are not always as they seem. It's a bit like the oasis in the dessert, because as I get nearer and nearer to the light and I begin to ready myself for normal life the damn light speeds up and then very quickly zooms past me, leaving me in this bloody tunnel for some more turmoil with only a view from my internal rear view mirror of some poor soul's backside screaming off down the same road I've just travelled. Occasionally though I do manage to get to the end and re-appear back into society a changed human being, not always for the better though as some of you might say, but changed from the experience none the less.
So, where does this leave me now?? Well, I suppose another couple of kicks up the bum from any interested parties will eventually do the trick and jettison me back to reality, let's hope hey??
Some good news too so life's not all doom and gloom, I am booked in for a spell of the old favourite, "Respite" in a week or two, but this time with a huge difference. I am going to stay, for a week, at the lovely "Jane Hodge Hotel" in Cowbridge which is not only a Hotel and Leisure Complex instead of all the other respite centres which are set up more like Hospitals, but this place is absolutely outstanding, so I am very excited at the prospect. I will hopefully write a piece on it in the next few days as we went to have a look around the other day and in fact Judith said to me, "You can blinking stay at home and I'll come in here instead".
