Well, we’re two weeks into the Lockdown, and we’re still more or less healthy. At least, no signs of COVID-19, which right now is the most important thing. There is a lot of frustration though, with the inability to find essentials like flour for baking; there’s not been a bag in any of our local supermarkets in a month.(more…)
at the turn of the year, I said that I wanted to lose weight and cut down on alcohol (among other things), the plan being that cutting down the alcohol would help the weight come off quicker. Well, I did! Now, I drink roughly half as often as I did then, and when I do, I drink about half as much. Little else has changed. I don’t eat any more, nor less.

So begins my countdown to homelessness.
As some readers will know, particularly the ones who’re close friends, I am looking for somewhere to live. For reasons beyond my control, my current flat-share is coming to an end, and I will need to move out soon. (more…)
I was on my way out this afternoon to get an injection done, when I saw a brown envelope by the door. It was urgent, from the DSS people, and so I opened it. It appears that they wanted to inform me that they had to stop paying me any benefits since August, and that I cannot get them to reconsider until I do what they want… Oh and they wanted be to know this would affect any housing benefit I claim and also that I am no longer entitled to free NHS prescriptions until it’s sorted out.

Sorry for the tone of this post, but feelings of despair and everything… (more…)
