And another.

Today I got a retirement card sent through the post to my home address.

Increasingly menacing. Tomorrow I will go to see the police with the stuff I've been getting. Just so they know.

And then I didn't. Bren made me think more carefully about it, and I realised I was reacting badly to someone who's obviously hurting.

focus...

I took down a series of posts, on the advice of someone I trust. They do still exist. They've just been reverted to draft status.

I've recieved a couple of rather odd and disturbing communications over the last couple of weeks, and I'm a little bit concerned that I'm becoming the focus for somebody's unhealthy obsession.

The first was an email via my website's contact form. The second was a letter, delivered by the post office to my home address.

I have not responded in any way to either of them, and hope that this will die for lack of oxygen.

epic journey, day one

Today we embark on a journey that will take us from our homes to the mountains. It involves a road, possibly a tunnel, and many strange meetings along the way perchance. It occurred to me to keep a journal of this, in some kind of satirical mock Tolkien style.

Don't know if I can make it fly, but...

well as you can see, i decided that the  benefits of producing such a piece would not realy offset the effort in producing it.

one more day...

Off to the Lake District on Saturday for my annual jollies.

Tomorrow though, promises to be an arduous day. Nine hours work, spread from 7am to 730pm. An early morning driving test.

My car has been playing up though. First the heater stopped working a couple of days ago, then today it suddenly started losing power, and then late on, as I was driving home, a constellation of warning lights came on on the dashboard. It was running too hot as well, so when I got home I had a look under the bonnet, and found that there appeared to be no water in the engine coolant reservoir.

Ah.

I've put water in it, although it might possibly be empty when I check in the morning.

If the warning lights are still on though, it could jeopardise the driving test.

Not good, either financially or in terms of my reputation, and there was no possible way, at 830 this evening, and with the test due to go out at just after 8am tomorrow, to sort out any kind of replacement or alternative arrangement.

Update: The problem is a leak in the cooling system. I had to fill it again this morning, and again immediately before the test. I knocked on the door of the examiners office, and told them I had a problem, explained what it was and what I'd done about it, and the examiner was kind enough to take me at my word and let the test go ahead, despite the warning light on the dashboard. Pupil passed with three minor faults. Happy bunnies. 7 more hours to do. Huzzah!
