Its freezing outside as I leave for work this morning @7.30am.
BUT its bright & actually quite pretty.
Theres something about London as Winter melts into spring.
Something which is totally personified in the gorgeous little Robins I have seen in my garden recently..
Feeling elated at the prospect of coming home to a relatively pretty, bright afternoon, I went to work, Looking forward to a few hours before “sunset at 5ish” in which I could spend some time in my garden & wonder at the beauty of the Robins & Finches & share some bread with my fish who live in the gorgeous pond my Son-in-Law built 2 years ago…
I got a call at 1ish saying, that same son-in-law, along with my daughter was already in the Garden (they know me so well), clearing ivy that has crept up, cutting brambles, cleaning out the pond filters & strimming the grass (as much as they can as its still a little damp).
Smiling, I look forward to going home..
BUT I’m stupid… I forgot… I’m “Socially Housed” & not entitled to spend time in my garden – or enjoy my labours, or the labours of my family (before anyone says anything, its his day off work & my daughter is on an apprentiship waiting list).
Yes, unfortunately, as my daughters can atest to, as soon as my girls went into the garden today, the next door neighbour opened her windows etc & put on the looped music, which we are all so sick of… at earsplitting level & went out…
Its so that we dont spend time out side… Sad thing is, I am sitting at my desk, where I should be writing for my clients (if I had any right now) & my ears are almost bleeding from the noise (as her speakers are right next to my wall)….
The reason? – As she has stated to the police… again… I am a “Demon” & she is saving my soul with this music...
So they have gone out, I am here by myself.. Indoors…
Oh what a bloody life.
I wanna cry.
