I walked two miles through heavy snow
Only to get from Oval Station home
Bed sitting room, Brunchettas, onion and pepper
Practicing open D

My stolen bag, whilst watching the Postcards
Things that you’re attached to can go any day
Oh good lesson, that’s a good lesson!
I will never turn away a stray

Reading too much of Luke Haines’ book
Bob’s Sainsbury’s whisky
Nowhere I can cook
Lex’s room is over the corridor
She designed her own silver inner eye make up
The Great Collapse and R. Stevie Moore
Christian Vander waging magic war
I can’t wash or sleep
My books block the door

If I watch Mulligan and O’Hare I’ll relax…
Helen Duncan the blitz witch on UK Conquest
I should record these, but the writing is the fun part
Moving to this flat… I made a totally great friend

Our laundry trips to the Crown Pub
The Spar in the garage
Two trips for more Gallo
Jess the cat stayed for one Saturday
Severence and Day of the Triffids

Summer Heights High
If You See God Tell Him DVD
Alesha Dixon on the dancing
A mouldy shower to the Wellcome Collection
Then the Euston Head of Steam pub

I’m reading about Laura Solon and Al Hirshfeld’s Nina
My spoon is too big
The Bevis Frond Xmas show at the lovely Luminaire
Tim and I with heartbreak beards

Lilywhites went from a Wooster or Jerome Idyll to a pound shop
I don’t like sports and prefer cheaper options – it’s just the fucking ugliness
The sandy chines and the Miramar hotel, on their diamond anniversary
Oh he loved her so much. He loved her so much

Moving to this flat I made a totally great friend
Playing strip Morning Crescent with K. Jenkins
Frenzied inspiration of mephitic inhaler
I’ll always keep smiling, I will go down swinging
