I would recommend them for hitting the spot, something substantial about a Nik Nak, I am partial to the cream cheese and chive variety though I like the scampi ones. Did I tell you about that empty Nik Nak bag I found in a multi pack so I wrote to KP and ended up with this bizarre letter asking why they didn't do a mutipack of just cream cheese, and where could I buy scampi ones, they must have thought I was about 6! Anyway got me a fiver worth of vouchers so no complaints xx

For Christmas Karen wanted a purse like my purple one. Because they don't make them anymore I bought a Radley set consisting of a pink leather change purse and leather note and card wallet. Anyway, last night Dan said that Karen has asked him to get her a Guess purse from NY! Which angered me in many ways.

1. What does she think, that we'll be wasting our time looking for a specific f**ing gift for her for? Cheeky f**er.

2. Clearly my choice was no good (and it cost 50), not enough room for change (?) apparently, so I think she's being beyond cheeky in asking us to get her another.

3. Surely she should be thinking about stuff for the impending arrival of baby Dooley? She's due in one month and if she's got money to waste on f**ing Guess purses then obviously she's getting help off her mom and dad whilst I am here propping up #1 son! And if she hasn't got the money then Dan (which basically means me), will be stiffed for it.

4. I was told not to get mad about it as it was better to be honest than to do what I do with their gifts which is throw them away or moan about them! Which is why I am walking around with this f**ing green handbag then is it? Which led me to say, "in that case get your mom on the phone so I can ask her for a brown leather bag and not this green plastic one". This earns more "Karen can say whatever she likes to me, I am her brother" b**ocks to which I said "in that case, next time there's any presents to be bought for Ireland you can take the time to go up town and buy them, choose them, pay for them and worry about them getting there in time because clearly I am s**t at it". And that can apply to the flights and car parking every time we go over there as well.

And he keeps throwing a towel over Windy's March picture, he can't take the smouldering look (about 2 years old as well)obviously so last night when he did I took the towel off it and kissed it! The look on his face was priceless! Almost as good as when he asked me if I'd sleep with him and I said yes without hesitation!

And he expected me to watch the f**ing darts last night because "Bicker will be disappointed if I don't see any of it". I'll tell you who will be disappointed, boy! xx

I have just finished your account. Have you ever considered writing a novel? My life with an Irishman. It's all well and good as you say eating in the street al fresco, but in a biting wind and snow, god bless, and as for a bad american breakfast - is there such a thing? That was my favourite meal of the day, pancakes, omlette, bagels, making me hungry just thinking about it. It is obvious to Dr Churchill that he offsets his discomfort by taking it out on you thus dissipating his own feelings of inadequacy, someat like that. Anyway how did you manage to get that 15 foot square poster of Windy in your luggage? xx

I did think about it, believe me. One of the PB forum girls went into GAP in the US and asked what they did with the promotional materials and he said they cut them up and threw them away. He asked her which posters she was interested in and she pointed out Windy but he didn't know who he was. When she asked if she could have one when the campaign finished he said "we're in the clothers business, not in the business of decorating your bedroom". Stroppy frakker! A novel eh? Do you think anyone would want to read it?! xx

Carrying on from yesterday having left here in a state of high dudgeon, whatever that means, yes I do think people would be interested. Or maybe your own blog under an assumed name of course. "My life as a pessimist OR The glass is definitely half empty" And of course we have the autobiography "Slingbacks on the Steinway" to get started on. You could not make up the things thta happen to you. I was reading a funny book by a lady called Marian Keyes about her travel experiences, and she is a million seller and not half as funny. Anyway you could cut the atmosphere here with a knife. I have decided to maintain silence, having come to the conclusion I am most definitely not a team player. Hope it is this sunny in Reading, gawd I need a break xxx

Maybe we should get a counter going, even this early! I was watching the Sopranos ep when Carm and Ro go and Carm was taking a photo of that pig's trotter restaurant. How the memories come flooding back! Maybe I'll look into the blog thing - as they say, misery likes company! A best selling author - now that sounds nice. Regardling work, Maggie is having a bad time of it with her feckless idle wasters of an accounts office. They sit on their asses all day making personal calls and then say they rushed off their feet. Maggie is drinking as soon as she gets in the door at night, time for a sharp exit I reckon. And Dieter is after me, God I hope he hasn't happened upon the trip to Germany page! xx

Paris would indeed do the trick, though to be fair I am planning a week, or if I can stretch to it 10 days in the sun with E, and possibly K, during the summer. Greece again I think, I like the child friendly vibe there and the guaranteed good weather, mind you I shall be taking earplugs (for the cicadas) and a fan this time! I have got to go and have a colposcopy which is not the best news but has been on the cards for a couple of years now so no real surprise. I tell thee I am tempted to get the whole lot removed though the thought of growing a beard puts me right of, and artificial hormones don't do me any favours either. This weeks good news, after the dearth of telly, is that Goodfellas is on Thursday, which is K's boys night out so I get to watch Ray in peace. On the subject of telly I must ring my dads mate that does aerials and get a quote. Central heating and proper telly, I shall have to give up being Amish!! xx

I feel very tense today, I don't know why, I feel all nervous and on edge. There's something afoot somewhere, you mark my words. x

Have you seen those artificial fat belts, they are gross, but strangely compelling. I am going to have lunch in a wee while then head off about 12.15. I think I am probably grumpy because I haven't seen you rather E was asking how long it had been last night, it does seem and age. Thank goodness for Reading. How is the training going? You ready to run? Mopre importantly have you been keeping up with the drinking training? xx

Yes it's been ages hasn't it? I suppose I am ready to run but I am not expecting a PB due to the illness and then NY. I just hope I have a good race so I can regain some of my enthusiasm which appears to have taken a severe battering since I was injured-I reckon it's let depression in by the back door. Anyway, we shall be together again shortly and you will have your NY mug and E her bag. I was going to get her a T-shirt but then I heard "not clothes again mummy" so I went for the bag instead! xx

Talk about getting inside your head, I dread to think what seeing a psychiatrist is like, psychologists are bad enough. Just back from my drinking study and I hae two conclusions:

1. I am not as unique as I think 2. I ilke control

I think you had already established your control freakery tendencies when we were talking about what if Dan was different and you said you didn't want him to be because you like being in control. Is is good or bad to not be unique? Good as regards drinking I guess, but after a straw poll of my mates I realise I am a mere amateur - but as a person I would say completely unique, as are we all. Should have directed him to twostarladies.com then he would have seen your uniqueness! Saturday I presume it will take 2-3 hours to get there. I would like to leave about 1-2 pm if that is OK with you. Means I don't have to rush, but will that give you enough time to rest and recuperate? Light dinner and a couple of drinkies and an early night methinks. What time is the race on Sunday? xx

2 o'clock Saturday is fine, it will take about two and half hours I reckon. Race time Sunday I'm not sure of but they want you there about 8.30am, but we are right near the start so we won't have to woryy about that. And aside from actaully having a bedroom on the pitch we are sooo close to the finish, like in Sunderland xx

I am not really in running mood lately to nbe honest. I am finding it so hard to get out running, it's not really like me at all so I am kind of looking at Sunday with an attitude of 'get it over with'. I am not drinking on Saturday because I don't consider myself fit enough for a drink the night before so make sure you are match fit for drinking on Sunday! I am looking forward to seeing you too, and having a good old LAFF!xx

Sorry to hear the running is not going so well, you juts have to make it round is all. I shall be having a little drinkie saturday, but I promise to go to bed early and save my strength for Sunday!

I think the running is being hindered by depression. Instead of it warding it off it's been swamped by it since my lay off last year. I am so tired all the time and I don't like looking people in the eye or spending time with anyone. I feel a bit reclusive. Hopefully a good race will see me through it. I hope so anyway. x

Maybe it's time for a new interest/sporting pursuit? As for the depression I would recommend a weekend away with Churchill (with PMT) as a guaranteed mood lifter. You still not swearing? I think getting the first race of a new season under your belt (tights?) will help, it has been a while xx

I can't think of any other sport I'd like to do, so I don't think it's the act of running that is the problem but everything else. The swearing took a severe knock in NYC but I am trying to get it back on track, although Dan has had a massive argument with Nick today so it may be tested again tonight - Nick called me the Sultan of Shifnal (not the cause of the row, that's more likely to be St. Karen of Nenagh)which really annoyed me as it implies so many things that I don't think I am. So if Dan's still p**ed off with him then I shall be going off both barrels too! xx

I am quite surprised that anyone would think you go around acting like you own the place, for starters you are rarely seen out in Shifnal. As for being rich, you are!! Well richer than he will ever be and therefore the comment is born of envy. Now when it comes to acting like you own the place look no further than the Crown Prince of Muxton. I was down there the other night and my mum said "Have you left your keys in the car?" I was a bit bemused "Because Tristan and E are playing in the car" "Oh right" "And Tristan might start the car up" !!! "And he likes pushing cars round in front of the house while Connaire steers"!!!

Ever since November 13th last year I have been teasing Dan about an upcoming episode of PB (#11) in which I had to open a window at work when I watched the download - lots of Martin moments in that one let me tell thee!. "Wait until the end of March Dan, you won't know what's hit you, best get up the chemist now" etc.etc. and low and behold the day is nearly upon us. Next Monday is indeed "Bolshoi Booze" night and guess what? He's on nights! For the first time in about 7 years he's got to do just one week of nights! I don't know who I feel the more sorry for! xx

That is kind of bitter sweet cos at least he will not have to see you in full on Windy Frenzy, on the other hand missing out on a definite leg over situation may see him throwing a sickie on that particular Monday! It is absolutely gorgeous here I really just want to go home. I am however trying to build some flexi to have a day off over Easter and having had a few early starts and late finishes this last couple of weeks I should be able to do that. I am thinking of taking E to Alton Towers. I know she would love it, I just want ot make sure she is tall enough for all the rides otherwise it's a waste of money. How mean am I? xx
