I'd just like to place it on record that I'm feeling brilliantly happy and enthusiastic at the moment. The sun is shining, I've got a house and a garden, I've painted a picture that actually looks like the thing I started painting, my courgettes are showing little yellow buds, my nasturtiums are sprouting, I'm going walking today with my colleagues and then we're going to end the day eating and drinking in a pub. I've got friends here and far away, I have people to talk to and people who listen to me and I'm going to make the most of it. I have a good man who loves me and who spent his lunchbreak yesterrday choosing and buying CDs for me because he wanted me to have some new music.
I will ignore the fact that my geranium seems to be resisting my efforts to keep it alive. I can't have everything.
