More rain (Thursday July 17th, 2003 - 13:00)

category: mmhuh?

What’s happening? London’s been mostly sweltering but thankfully today there’s been a small amount of rain and the temperature’s dropped by about 10 degrees.

the Sister Vanilla gig was great the other week and hopefully they’ll be gigging about the UK soon.

I’m not too fond of the tax refund company I’m using because I think they’re lazy and that they’re lying to me about chasing up the Inland Revenue for my refund. But what can you do?

I guess that’s a bad habit of mine – if something’s not right I won’t shout and scream, but if I’m really annoyed I will confront things in a polite way respecting the fact that usually the person on the end of the phone line has nothing to do with the matter at hand. Unfortunately it’s usually the shouters and screamers who do get everything done for them in double time.

The blackberries in the garden have been multiplying and so I’ve been eating them and making them in to smoothies.
