Panda’s Journal – Friday 27th December 

Friday 27th December  Finally spent time with Alice today, though I did not expect Bambii to come too. I do love Bambii but there are obvious limitations to conversation. I think that maybe Alice did it on purpose, hoping that Blinknott would be here. Went better than I expected though, we spent a lot of the day looking at Bambii’s music collection. And from what I can gather from Alice this is a rare occurrence and I should feel privileged. So I do. What I will say is that I was shocked by what I heard.…

Panda’s Journal – Thursday 26th December 

Thursday 26th December  Blinknott may be a geeky genius but at times he makes me wonder. I’ve told him to burn that damn green suit and forget about the earth traditions for a while. Panic day! Just found my passport and it will expire before we leave,  I only have today to renew before all applications for next year are cut off. And as it’s the last day I will have to go in person which means I will miss work plus I am going to have to leave the…

Panda’s Journal – Wednesday 25th December 

Wednesday 25th December  Apparently today is some anniversary of an Earth tradition? Baffles me. Blinknott rang to say he had been running around in a dark green suit lined with white fluff all day shouting Ho Ho Ho! at children. If you ask me he is lucky he wasn’t arrested he must have scared the life source from those kids. Blinknott rang again, I have to go and bail the idyat out. Plus he got the day wrong, seems this very bizarre earth tradition is tomorrow and not today. Again,…

Panda’s Journal – Tuesday 24th December

Tuesday 24th December  Turns out my head was not on backwards as first suspected, I was in fact lying face down in bed. Another long day at work ahead, but at least my boss will be paying me for the Egg Griddlers today.   Plus, Blinknott left a message to remind me that group is on tonight.     Like I would forget?

Panda’s Journal – Sunday 22nd December

Sunday 22nd December  What luck! My manager at work was after new Egg Griddles. Turns out someone bought the last 24 on late night TV Shopping and oddly I had that exact amount arrive this very morning. Even selling them at twice what I bought them for he is getting a down right bargain. Must ring Blinknott, who still has not returned my call, and tell him the good news.   Looks like next year’s holiday is for now back on track. Got carried away and bought lots of alcohol…

Panda’s Journal -Saturday 21st December 

Saturday 21st December  Work today, all day. In fact the Duty Manager rang to see if I could do a double shift. With the Egg Griddles costing me three arms and a leg I need the extra hours. Wonder if work need any Egg Griddlers

Panda’s Journal – Thursday 19th December 

Thursday 19th December  It’s still raining, nearly 80 hours non-stop. I have heard talk at work of the lower levels being flooded. I missed group this week so did not get the chance to see for myself.    I even rang Blinknott to tell him I wasn’t going but got no reply. He hasn’t rung back so I will ring again later. Hope he is ok, he seemed ok when we spoke on Tuesday morning. But then a lot can happen in the course of a day.

Tuesday 17th December 

Tuesday 17th December  Finally managed to speak to Blinknott today. Plans for the vacation are not going well. He has been put on short hours at the supermarket. Why he just doesn’t ask his parents for the extra cash I will never understand. But, I have to honour his decision. Means I will be working extra shifts to help out with his share. Which is why I am off to work on my day off.     Oh the fun!
