It began when I awoke, continued when I browsed the meaninglessness in the papers and continued ceaselessly all day. I have no idea why!
Maybe it is I am just feeling a bit rough, maybe I need to eat better - the diet is failing - and maybe it is just par for the course. Anything and everything got me going today. The laptop started it really. You see I have been attempting to speed it up and naturally after all my work it goes much slower than ever. I informed the component parts, the people scribbling advice that I browsed and indeed most of their relatives of my considered thoughts on the matter. It made no difference.
Later i took a break from the labours of cleaning the sink, it has been some time, and played patience on the laptop. It is funny how playing this game often allows the thoughts to wander as the requirement to think is not great. Wandering thoughts made me rant about and too all sorts of people, I am open minded that way. These subjects were of course important at the time however my mind has managed to forget what such important matters were.
The attempt to finish the ironing, it failed by the way, led me to listen to the radio, then watch things on the TV while doing so. I soon found things to grumble at, and told both my opinions forceably. Whoever they were ignored my comments. Using the BBC iPlayer I watched the 'Sportscene' version of the two big games at the weekend while stuffing grub down my throat. This led to my opinions on Rangers football club, under several names, being offered freely to the gentlemen on view. Being recorded on Sunday evening they were unable to hear my wise thoughts and ignored me. This little problem was not enough to hinder my free expression.
I am reading an excellent Great War book called 'The War the Infantry Knew' by a chap called Dunn. As he considered the Brigade, then Division, and then Corps staff I found myself sharing much of his opinion of their work ethic also. If you wish to plan a war go and see what the situation happens to be, a thought that few amongst them appeared to share. Dunn, in the firing line, made clear his opinions of them.
I have decided I am again suffering something, that explains the rants, the tiredness and the lack of sensible things to say. I could rant at those who inform us that winter down there begins at 23 degrees and rising while we suffer high winds, rain, and Spring! But I will not. I wish them well and go off for a hot toddy....
