The good news is I've sold lots of old clothes on ebay, the bad news is the estate agents came today to value the house. Whilst they were here I asked about rental properties which I was told were readily available until I mentioned they would have to be below £500 a month when the agent went white and insisted it was not her area of expertise. I haven't quite got the inner mental strength required to explain less than £400 a month would be more realistic for what I can afford, even if it is laughable considering the rental market conditions. The letter I received from the local authority informing me they were reducing my housing benefit because the value of the property had lowered should warm anyone's cockles. Especially as they took that action some months prior to the credit crunch but still managed to 'forget' the millions they had sitting in Icelandic banks.
In other news having survived all these years as a borked person without anyone trying to heal me, I've now had two such offers within a month. The first seemed to amuse many people, the second, volunteered by a person known locally as Paedo Paul-well, his nickname should tell you all you need know about the veracity of his opinions, but if not...
I met Paedo Paul through a mutual friend. For legal reasons I should explain that no-one suspects him of actual paedophilia but his strong desire for young looking Thai women is no secret. And yes, such men are always irresistibly attracted to me. It's the ringlets and height I think, unfortunately neither of which are within my power to change. Anyway, Paedo Paul has an amazing herbalist doctor. A doctor who PP claims can cure anything. A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. I suggested that genetic disorders might not be within the herbalist doctor's remit but Paedo Paul was not deterred. Clearly he likes his women not only to look unfeasibly young but be of the non borked variety too. And yes, of course he looks like a less attractive Frank Gallagher...Paedo Paul is not on benefits though, so obviously has far higher social standing than those of us the media currently considers the devil incarnate. Ah the irony of paedophiles being preferable to us
Anyway, Paedo Paul was determined his herbalist doctor could cure me. Proper cure mind, none of your fancy schmanzy 'healing' for this guy. Who by the way is not a medical doctor. In case you'd not guessed that already. I always check because there are some medical doctors also
That's all for now, but bait your breath** for more forthcoming Bog Off! toilet photos...the Scottish Parliament no less. Thank you Jim. Oh, and a photo of me. If you're really unlucky that is!
* Yes, it is looking likely we will lose the only full time specialist for EDS and HMS in the UK. Whilst there is another based in London he is well past retirement age now and the hoped for replacement was no longer to replace last I heard. Even so the hoped for replacement is more interested in HMS and not the management of those of us lucky enough to be completely fucked. If any doctors are interested in such specialisation it is worth knowing that it is a specialty in which your patients will adore you-an unusual situation in the modern NHS.
** Don't hold it though...at my current posting speed you'll be very deaded.
