If everybody had stuck to this rather sensible advice from The Bard then we wouldn’t have banks.
In particular the situation where I was in a mood in a bank trying to close an account and being told by an obnoxious jumped up branch manager not to shout and then having to explain I wasn’t shouting I was just louder than her, and besides if she hadn’t stomped out from the back of the branch to talk to me I would already have managed to leave and would in fact be outside by now would not have happened.
So now I have to go back to Santander next week in my free time to close an account that in the last couple of months has cost me a small fortune mainly due to disgraceful charging policies on account of the aforementioned bank. I’ll admit, my money management isn’t great, but with charging policies that mean they can charge me when I go over a limit because they have charged me what fucking chance do I have?
In short; I hate banks. If I could keep my small amount of money under my bed or in my wardrobe I would. I don’t like being forced to give my money to a bunch of incompetent unreliable and untrustworthy buffoons, but such is life.
Okay, deep breath. Rant over. As you were.


So we’re nearly at March already. How did that happen? Haven’t we only just had NYE?
Anyway they say as you get older time goes faster. Or is that as you get older you’ll get up in the night for a wee more often? I forget. Apparently age also affects the memory, but I can’t remember who told me that. Also, I may get up in the night for a wee more often. And my memory may go, too.
Right, stop that.
So my daughter is three years old in a couple of weeks. Flippin’ ‘eck. I cannot believe how fast 2023 is going. Apparently as you get older time goes faster…
I’ve had an up and down year so far; a swift and unplanned change of jobs, a twelve week scan (eeeeeehh!) and guess what?
I’ve only gone and bloomin’ well started to do a bit of writing haven’t I?! It’s all a bit naff so far I think, but I have actually done a bit of planning, plus a little actual writing. It’s very exciting (for me at least).
Anyway that’s all I’ve got for now, plus I don’t want to bore anyone. You’ve all got lives to lead, plus I have a cup of tea to finish.
Have a good one folks!
