Hello there on a sunny cold Saturday morning. All is quiet here and am looking forward to Palace hopefully winning v Stoke later. It’s been a grim season but performances have improved without reward. Maybe today.
I achieved something in the past week. I completed the reading of a book. It was one I couldn’t stop reading once I started, on the history of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq between 1912 – 1948. Having finished this I am now hoping to continue and re-read Tony Benn’s biographies in the hope of finding answers to today’s questions.
Last week I mentioned how I stabbed myself. I was about 15 years old and working in Gibbers of Holloway on Seven Sisters Road at the time. Such an act was accidental not an act of deliberate self harm. I did it with something like this;
cauliflowers to make them nicely presented for display. I was wearing
one of these warehouse coats. Note where the lower pockets are. If you put knife in picture 1 into such a lower pocket, and then lift a
crate of cauliflowers up to your chest and then lower it down your body. Bringing the knife down into your upper thigh in the process. That is how I came to stab myself. I was taken to the Royal Northern Hospital to have some stitches. No further harm came to myself.
I might get Kenan to film a video re-enaction when he comes home for Christmas. I’ve been watching I’m a Celebrity and Eastenders and I’m becoming aware of Vlogging. But I think I’ll stick to blogging.
Things I recommend; the new LP by The Stereophonics. It’s great.
Things I don’t recommend; forgetting where the knife is.
