That was the week that wasn’t. I’m incredibly expressed and angry about the Brexit vote. It’s brought out the worst in so many people. It’s a terrible day for Britain. Not just because of what we’ve lost, what we’ve wasted and what we’ve thrown away - but because of the harm it’s going to do long term. But also - it’s a triumph of stupid, lies, bigotry, small mindedness and incompetence. Neither party can come out of this well - they are both as culpable as the other. Obviously, the world isn’t going to end - but it’s going to be a worse place and many people, mostly the young, are going to lose so much.
I’ve already lost work now - people like me at the end of the food chain are the ones who will suffer most. I know a lot of people who have jobs that are directly connected to Europe - not sure how they must be feeling right now.
In an attempt to get away from it all - I went to the cinema yesterday - I watched the new ‘Independence Day’ film - for a laugh. It was probably the worst film I have ever seen. I was incredibly close to walking out. Total garbage. A lot of money wasted on a poorly conceived, badly written, indifferently acted and clumsily crafted mess. Don’t bother.
Worked quite hard this week, lots of new work but mostly very poorly paid despite being complicated and difficult. It’s an uphill struggle - made worse by Brexit. I need to think very carefully about what’s going to happen next.
I have an uncle who is very ill and apparently they have decided to withdraw his medication, so it’s only a matter of time. He’s had a full and active life - but it’s still sad.
I have some invoices out that may be enough to cover some urged bills and pay for the garden fences. That would make a huge difference to my quality of life. Still no electricity downstairs at the back of the house - I’m at a loss there. I have quite a lot to do this week so it’s gone onto the back burner.
I threw caution to the wind and bought myself a ticket to see John Grant next month as a birthday present to myself. I’m hoping it’s as good as people tell me - I can’t bear any more personal disappointments.
