Early to bed...early to rise

If that is not bleeding obvious I don't know what is...but went to bed early last night, up and full of beans this morning. I decided to head to the gym on the bus, enjoyed the lovely bus ride laughed at loud on way home when I heard a small child exclaim; 'Look at the scary man mummy' close to the West Hill. Couldn't spot the scary man unfortunately though suspect it was Mr Grey Area on way to work.

I got a phone call at the gym from our students company saying the girls were trapped in the house. I felt a moments concern then realised they had just been stymied by the double handle thing on the door so told the agency to get them to call me if still stuck, or worst case scenario to leave by back door. Got home unconcerned and then realised I had actually, um, locked them in the house. They had managed to get out by the back door, of course leaving it unlocked for the burglars to enter.

Fortunately, all's well, I'm out of the shower, cat and hamster safe from burglars and students out for blistery walk on Suicide Hill, or whatever they call Beachy Head these days.

I once had to answer a frantic yell from two Dutch boys in R's room when the handle on their side fell off.

That was in the days when he would give up his room for students...

Ha! Word verification now is "capalist" - a sort of half-hearted capitalist?

Oh Richard - is it one of those "it must be all my fault...nobody loves me,everybody hates me, I think I'll go and eat worms" days?

I LOVE my word today: "depub"! That's what I will be doing later tonight!

But you obviously need the next word to appear: "hugge"!
