[life] love it or loathe it, you can't like it


Have to laugh. P.G. Wodehouse wrote, in The Inimitable Jeeves:
I've found, as a general rule in life, that the things that you think are going to be the scaliest nearly always turn out to be not so bad after all; but it wasn't that way with Bingo's tea party. From the moment he invited himself I felt the thing was going to be blue round the edges and it was. And I think the most gruesome part of the whole affair was the fact that, for the first time since I'd known him, I saw Jeeves come very near to being rattled.

That's a pretty good description of a day today which began with an emergency call to come straight to the passport office and which then got steadily worse as it progressed. I've been all over town today trying to sort things out and stay sane. What ho - so unless something drastically alters, I think you're now seeing the last month of this blog.

Every cloud, though ... and today the young ladies decided to be magnificent. Worse things happen at sea, ha ha, I'm off to bed and I'll leave you with a Wooster number to cheer you up:

What could they do to you that could possibly prevent you from sitting at a keyboard? Methinks you are being a little dramatic.

I Had a pretty bad day today too, completed with a major disk failure on my home computer. Just to ensure I couldn’t relax of an evening. Life never seems to really get any easier.

If I'm not in the country, Wolfie, I can't be at a keyboard.
