So June has cometh and it’s been a few days since I spoke about me and my life, which is odd considering that is primarily what this blog is about. The reason for this is that I have been in my house doing little of interest apart from the occasional trip out since Friday.Part of my brain keeps telling me to revise and another part says no. Literally all I’ve done since Friday is read Atonement which may or may not come in useful.
Whilst I have been lying on my bed randomly surfing the internet, my mum and dad have begun decorating the living room. The first problem was getting the wallpaper border off the walls in order to be able to paint on them. This has taken several days but tomorrow I believe the painting begins. I think residing in my bedroom is for the best at the moment.
Of course, I would be completely out of my mind by now if I hadn’t gone anywhere. Last night I when down to Boscombe with mum and dad, an area of Bournemouth that has recently been regenerated. £300 million was spent on a surfing reef that was supposed to make the waves bigger but it turns out it doesn’t actually work. The area is very nice now but oddly enough there are signs explaining how the surfing reef works. It’s so tempting to write “It doesn’t” on them!
This morning I accompanied the family on a visit to Castlepoint Shopping Centre. I bought a cheap DVD player for my room and then had to accompany my brother to buy an Xbox game and a cricket ball. The cricket ball was to be bought from a shop called Sports Direct. There I discovered a bag which was 70% off and decided to buy it. Unfortunately the one cashier was slow at dealing with the people in front, didn’t notice we were in the queue and then dropped the cricket ball. The service was so atrocious.
I have written another poem, which lies directly between the love and the loss of love ones I have already written (thematically that is). Read “I want to be alone with you” here.
A new feature on the right hand side of this blog is a flag counter. In three days this page has been visited by people from 9 different countries, including some odd ones like Panama and Luxemburg. I’m quite surprised at the number of people who read this blog but as we start a new month I would like to thank all those people!
