17.15 – This whole situation is not going to work out. I need to talk to Caroline about alternatives. I’m stuck here and don’t feel as if I’m going anywhere, and nothing is moving forward at the appropriate pace. Need somehow to have some control over my affairs. the question is how?

Monday 18 October 2021

07.25 – The only update I have is that I need to make a decision about all those around me, as I feel I am causing them grief and, in some cases, making them ill with the stress of my case. It’s okay for me to get stressed and get ill, because I have caused my own worries, but it is not okay for others to suffer as I do. That means this week I need to be brave and take the right decision.

17.21 – Finally I get to see a real honest upright decent lawyer Karen Todner who is holidaying in the Maldives and when she is back may help, and by God I need help

11.13 – I was thinking this morning I wonder if in say 100 years’ time one of my grandchildren or great, great, grandchildren will go on TV programmes like “who do you think you are” and research my life? Just thinking? What kind of legacy or memories do we wish to leave? That is the question!!!

Sunday 31 October 2021

18.51 – Many things have happened today out of my rat trap, but here sweet FA I have just taken these two days of the weekend as a kind of mental and physical holiday. Now tomorrow at “Rolls Inn” where I work, I will probably put risotto Milanese on the menu with chicken and pasta with tuna. You see when its cold people like to eat hot meals and pasta is filling tomorrow, I will also see my lawyer again.
