By Bandhag. Aged (ahemrufflmublecough)
I met a boy. We fell in love. We moved in together. There was talk of buying a house. He suddenly had a big ole crisis, wasn't sure if he still loved me (or if he ever had), then decided he did but that didn't want us to live together any more, so we tried living apart for a while and seeing each other maybe once a week. Then I grew some self esteem and decided it was better for the both of us that we stopped doing that to ourselves. So we did.
I lost a shitload of weight.
I did a couple of courses in pole dancing (for fun - not career).
I moved out of London. But still commute there.
I bought a house. In the town I grew up in. With my younger sister. At the peak of the property boom. It has turned out to be every bit as wise a move as it sounds.
I gave my middle sister away at her wedding.
I learned how to knock down walls and fireplaces, how to chase the walls for new electric cables, and how to be respected by a bunch of burly workmen.
I stopped smoking. Again.
I started being one of those people who sees the end of things before they've started. Y'know: do I really want to get involved again? Is this really worth the risk of getting hurt again? How long is it going to take before it all goes wrong? And that annoys me. I don't like those people.
And, probably, I had some ice cream and watched a dead good film and played out on my bike with Billy until mum said it was time for tea but we didn't want to go in for tea so we played out a bit more but then mum came out again and she was cross and she said it was time for tea or I had to go to bed so I said ok and I said to Billy I would see him again tomorrow but then I got the measles and had to be in bed for the rest of the holidays but it was ok because mum got me some comics and I had the telly in my bedroom.

Honest to God. You'd think this country had never seen a bit of fucking snow before.
I ask you.
