(sick) (rest day)
Sinuses & lungs bad in night. Green output this morning & taste of blood, confirming that I've developed an inevitable infection following on from the post-Spook w/e "heavy cold". Needed strong painkillers at 3am to get back to sleep.
A mate visited for coffee, and the din from upstairs' "squats, gym moves, cross trainer " etc was so disrupting, we both went up, thence followed a long, heated & emotional (the French can be emotional; I was being very reasonable & factual) confrontation with a very aggrieved young man in his sweaty pyjamas. Very little progress made; he claimed that I was causing his partner huge stress and that I - I!!!! - was "stopping him " from living his life. OMG? Pardon? I've spoken to him twice in 3 months & her, 3 times in 3 months.
Tomorrow, I meet a new tenant for my Clifton flat. Once I draw up & sign his agreement, I cannot legally kick him out for a minimum of 6 months; so I am forced to live in this place for 7 more months. The alternative is to serve notice to the other guy (2 months) and run back to Clifton at the end of January. , thereby cutting my losses here. The prospect of moving house AGAIN is utterly awful, tho.
If anyone reading this thinks I write this stuff for fun, or for attention, or I bring drama onto myself: trust me, I do not. if you're a friend of mine, and you'd like to help with advice, or opinions, please do - I'd appreciate it. I'm in a real state.
What I WANT to be writing is:
"Steady 4 miles on Pur Down - a bit stiff, but generally OK".
