10.48am in the Library with a Green Tea

I came just to see my friend and bought my own tea bag! She gave me cup and hot water for 50p!

She says that I'm knocking on a bit at 40 and need to get busy in the family department. I said I have been getting busy in the family department but I absolutely refuse IVF/see Doctor Fertilty Whatsit but I'm hoping that should it be twins or worse (quadruplets???) that some kind of miracle will help find the space for them all. She reassures me that the risk of them coming out with 2 heads is less likely than winning the lottery (!!) and that famous-elephant-man-guy-whose-only-friend was a doctor .....whose own mother rejected him at birth....was probably a lot happier than everyone/anyone who cared might have thought. In fact they did a reconstruction of what he would have looked like without the disease/condition and he was really handsome.

My friend said there is no point starting a coffee am today on Thursday, I might as well come back to the 'walk-a-thon' on Wednesday with all the 'middle-aged' people....who I thought I might perhaps be one.....she said middle age is 60 now. There are no silver surfers in here today though. One helping put books away.

We are so rich in this country that they wait for the old people to get bored/lonely and sign up for volunteer work instead! When certain young ones have applied and applied and applied for a job stacking the shelves in the library/tescos to no avail (guess God is referring me onto better things as I'm told rejection is just a kind of 're-direct' to something bigger/better).

~Anyway, its 10.59am now and I only have 38 minutes left....but one of the silver volunteers might give me another hour....like they did last time, if I ask sweetly enough~

I just want to go back in time to when we watched Saturday morning Live and they had a talent contest and some 8 year old girl sang 'I've got your name upon my wall, I've got my name upon my scarf....'....she came from a musical family. We were all humming the song in school on Monday Morning. Also want to go back to making prank phone-calls with my friends in our-day version of 'knock-down ginger'...but obviously we are all grown-ups now....and the kids don't even do Trick or Treat properly anymore. My neighbour got a 6ft 7in tall shadowy Pirate kind of figure to put outside his front door...and I was actually quite impressed as usually you get little toddlers whose Mum and Dad are hiding round the corner somewhere.....and I've never actually had the courage to say 'Trick' and I'm too guilty for not buying enough sweets for 'Treats'.....but I can see how having kids can take Mum and Dad's minds of things like 'shall I get a job just for the fun of it' or so Little Jimmy can grow up to LIE ON THE COUCH/STREET CORNER WITH A CAN OF TENNANTS all day...

I have also been warned that certain family-whose-name-I-can't member, were advised they would never ever have children....through caution to the wind....and proved all the doctor-fertility experts completely wrong! But I have a feeling Dr - Fertility- Expert's Sweaty/Smelly T-Shirt Experiment might have been spot on!

I went to watch my 10-year-old niece play soccer last night. It was dark and damp. The field was huge; the lighting not so great. In the third quarter, we saw the glow of a giant apartment fire off in the distance. That was sad, because we knew that meant a lot of people were losing everything they have.

Then the lights went out because the coach hadn't set the timer for enough time. It took 20 minutes for the halogen lights to cool off and then light back up. It was boring. I sat in the car and played on my phone.


The lights came back on but I stayed in the car for awhile. I guess I'm a bad uncle. But in my defense, my feet hurt and my lower legs were beginning to ache, which meant a night of cramps. So I thought staying off my feet for awhile was a good idea. And it was!

I slept through the night with no cramps. It helped that I elevated my feet on a pillow. However, one good thing usually causes one bad thing and in this case, I think my back does not like my feet being elevated. It's sore today. I don't want a sore back. I also don't want cramps.

But I think I'd take some of that green tea, if you have some to spare.

"Soccer" (or to be more accurate, real football) doesn't have a third quarter. It's a game of two halves. Come on Rodeo, you know this. Then again, a lack of football knowledge would explain why you're a Tottenham Hotspur fan.

For some inexplicable reason, the kiddie football my niece plays has quarters. My guess is that it's to give the kids some rest.
