46a

The 46a – or absence thereof – Kill Avenue – 25 April 2017

A tale of waiting, and waiting some more, and bitter disillusionment.
And frostbite.

She got her bus in the end. Three of them in a convoy actually, bumper to bumper. Once the guys had finished their game of cards at the terminus.

Me no speak Englese

I heard the yapping from half a mile away. A group of exchange students walking down George’s street, deep in animated conversation.
Their Catalan seems to be coming along rather nicely I thought.
The parents will be thrilled. Money well spent, these intensive linguistic courses.

48 hours on, and Peter was still finding it hard to believe that Andrex were really having a 16-for-the-price-of-10 family pack offer.

Was this blatant lack of business acumen sustainable?
Or perhaps there was a catch…

Struggling to come to grips with reality

Either Luca has farted, or a very stinky election is in progress.

Weird to hear the kids express their worries about something happening several thousand miles away. 
Still, I am convinced that more worrying dealings happen at regular intervals, much further away from the public eye, by guys far more powerful than a mini-billionaire with a dodgy comb-over. The yoke that I have persistently refused to mention, online or in “real life” conversations, because denouncing him or deriding him will not change the mind of his electorate. It just helped him grow to the point of omnipresence. 
Let’s hope that from tomorrow, he goes back to reality tv where he belongs.

Gordon was annoyed with himself for having forgotten his toy tankers on the wall.
Again.
It’s only when he got to the car that he realised he’d have to do the 3 mile round trip to the end of the pier to retrieve them.
