Everyone’s got something to hide; my brother in law is a policeman. 


My dad has loaned me his Untold Stories to read but having listened to bits of Keeping On Keeping On when he read some on Radio 4 and having just watched Alan Bennett’s diaries on the BBC, I have such strong positive feelings towards him and his values.

“It’s does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live”

The next scene after this is Harry out in the snow with Hedwig. It’s a good transferable message. 

I feel immense guilt when I am hungover- without having actually done anything wrong or upsetting anybody. I think just the fact that I have been less inhibited, less in control and remember less really affects me and I think it’s never worth it but my friend sent me two great photos that reminded me of how great the night was before one of these awful days of guilt. I was having a good time, and I was relaxed with my friends and that’s important. 

I spend most of my time with Sparky wondering what’s going on inside his Romanian Stray head. 

I love women’s hour for the insight into other commonly lived experiences that I might not know about and then the further thinking into the things that are completely familiar to me. 

This program is obviously quite different and all about the BIG people. The high impact females who’ve changed things. 

There were some interesting choices and I’d like to discuss it further – I need another brain to twist my points around and to challenge me so I’ll remind myself to bring this list up with the important women in my life, and the important men. 

I might make my own list. Look out. 

NB: Remember to discuss this with my own powerful woman, my ma. 

 …she had wild eyes, slightly insane. She also carried an overload of compassion that was real enough and which obviously cost her something. 

My body is behaving strangely – I’ve come to know it fairly well but there’s been a couple of things troubling me and today it got a bit weirder. I have to keep my faith in some little things doing their jobs but I think it’s made me an emotional bunny today.
