Weal Watch:

The weals are still in situ, but every day brings them a little closer to normality, and I have everything crossed that they will have disappeared completely by Saturday. Oh please, God, let them have disappeared completely by Saturday…

When I woke up this morning and saw the diminished status of the weals, however, I was so overjoyed that I picked up Rubin and placed him on the bed for a quick game of “Rubin tries to lick Amber’s face”. “Great, the weals are almost gone,” I thought joyfully – just as Rubin scratched my eyeball with his sharp little claw. Doh. I should totally be placed inside some kind of bubble for my own protection. Who do I speak to about that, I wonder?

Wedding Watch:

Things all seem to be going to plan with the wedding preparation so far (red weals aside, obviously), which means that something will probably go dramatically wrong  in the next couple of days. We visited the venue for the last time tonight and everything was looking good. I meanwhile, am starting to get a little bit nervous, although still mostly excited. Last night’s dream: it was the day before the wedding and both of my shiny new veneers dropped off, plus one of my other teeth. Weirdly, Terry (who has no veneers), dreamt almost exactly the same thing. (I also dreamt that Sky and Elle from Neighbours were having a lesbian affair, but I don’t think that had anything to do with the wedding…)

Also: at about 3am this morning, I leapt screaming from the bed and slammed the light on, shouting to Terry to GET OUT OF THE BED NOW because it was FILLED WITH CRABS, OMG! It took him a good five minutes to calm me down and convince me that there were no crustaceans in the bed. After that, sleep didn’t come easy, let me tell you…

  1. how interesting!!
    an insight into our lovely little street, and the behaviour of our “ghetto” kids

  2. Glad you find it interesting, also nice to see you feel the need to post anonymously with a fake email address, we do have your IP address anyway so feel free to keep hiding your identity.

  3. my ip address will only confirm i live in the same ghetto as you,…my email address is not fake, im your ghetto neighbour, very up frount i feel.
    your ramblings have been read over the last few days by most of the ghetto, and has cause great amusement, in fact it has taken me two days to post a reply, i was so caught up in it all.
    it is also available in print form for the sad ghetto residents who don’t have the internet, or just in case it vanishes.

  4. I'm pleased that you are amused, that's the whole intention of the site as you can see it's a humorous take on everyday life.

    If you were being upfront you would of course use your real name but if you prefer to hide behind the guise of a pseudonym so be it.

    And also be reassured the posts won't be vanishing; so the residents as well as the tens of thousands of other readers will still be able to enjoy the site.
