Wound up this week [Jun. 15th, 2007|12:52 am]
Douglas Spencer
A difficult week, with many things winding me up -- the week started on Sunday when I got introduced to the entirety of julia_winolj's extended family, which was a lot better than it might have been but left some residual stresses. Things went downhill on Monday when a friend was the victim of a domestic violence/assault, which wound me up; On Tuesday there was the whole Sheffield Hallam thing going on which wound me up further, beyond the point where my sense of proportion fails; Julia hasn't quite been at her peak of health all week, which is a stress all by itself, and her mother has gone back into hospital, which adds to it; it's way past my bedtime, and I'm behind with Teledu stuff, and fanzine deadlines are coming up, and there's washing up waiting to be done, and there's a long drive tomorrow, and tomorrow is going to be a difficult day anyway and I'm just too wound up. And as a general background to all of this, despite a week and a half of trying really hard to write something I want to post tomorrow I've completely failed to do the subject justice.

Better after tomorrow's over. Please. And tomorrow during the day I'm in the company of someone who actually gets it, who understands what it's like for me -- and in the evening I'm in the company additionally of Julia, which is always a good thing.

Bed now.

Let me know if there is anything I can do. Seriously. I have a big hammer and a fresh roll of duct tape.

I knew today would be a difficult day for you. I was thinking about her yesterday - nearly posted myself, but didn't want to trigger you into feeling rotten.

Take care driving today at the end bit, it's kind of wet up here ... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/south_yorkshire/6755459.stm

What with one thing and another, we probably won't see you this trip, everybody take care of each other.

If you're talking Towel Picnic I'm afraid not -- I'll be in Nottingham, but on Teledu business.
