Oddly warm and spring-like this morning. Plenty of green shoots and some flowers - the weather is a mess. Pretty damp too.
I had 48 hours of constant screaming from the woman next door - I honestly think she only has 2 settings. Screaming and asleep - however - the discarded box for a 49inch flat screen TV they dumped this morning kinda explains the silence today.
I worked really hard last week - I actually seem to have a lot of really good, challenging PAID work on at the moment - but nothing in the bank so I'm still on lockdown, I'm trying not to think about that part - but I'm enjoying being busy and my head is working really hard.
The cracks to the front of my house are getting worse. I need to pull about 10k out of the bag really soon - I'm getting quite stressed about that one.
For some unknown reason - the new window cleaner did his work dressed as an elf or leprechaun yesterday morning (he cleans all the windows opposite) - It was very strange.
Pulled my back out again, in a different way to before - but not badly. It's just sore and uncomfortable.
One of my neighbours (just round the corner) has chopped down the trees that have always hidden their house. It's changed the way everything looks. This house was hidden before.
Watched a few films last week, including two recent British thrillers - both of which had strange and unexpected local connections and similarities. 'The Last Passenger' A film with Dougray Scott and Lindsay Duncan set on the train from London Bridge to Hastings that gets hijacked by a nutter - they make a big thing about the actually journey itself and end up (badly) in a fire and crash roughly a mile from my house, and 'Howl' - which is set on exactly the same route - a sort of 'American Werewolf' type film that tries to persuade us there are werewolves in Eastbourne It doesn't have to try too hard. I actually really enjoyed them both. Harmless fun and both with surprisingly high production values.
I have a heavy day tomorrow - lots of work, some politics to deal with and a couple of challenges I could do without. Extracting money from people is the hard part. Transport is still all over the place so nobody is going anywhere soon - I think the London Underground will also be on strike from tonight.
