No don’t worry, I’m not turning into Eminem. I am impressed with myself for starting to wrap all the Christmas presents last night. I had a big pile of shiny packages after an hour, but then I had had enough. At least I have made a start.
Fortunately I had a great bit of TV to keep me entertained as I was wrapping: The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries, about the landlord of a poor girl who was murdered in Bristol a few years ago. He suffered trial by the media: they crucified him. Because he was a somewhat unusual and eccentric character and, as the victim’s landlord had a key to her flat, they decided he was guilty, as did the police. I remember thinking at the time, ‘What happened to innocent until proved guilty?’ Part two is tonight and I will watch it whilst doing the ironing. What an exciting life I lead!
I also checked my bank balance and had to transfer some of my Christmas fund over to my current account. I need to start pulling back on the throttle now as I don’t want to overspend.
