Hanging together or being hanged separately? First try

Well, interesting that the polls were correct. And interesting times ahead, I daresay. I wonder how long it’ll all last, and whether we’ll have another election within a year.

We didn’t get much sleep last night – in fact, the Sage couldn’t sleep so came down to watch the results come in and finally dozed off on the sofa. I left the house at 7.30 and pedalled dismally off in the direction of Yagnub. My legs ached. I looked at the little upward inclination over the bridge towards the post office and thought I couldn’t do it. I was too lazy to get off and walk however, so kept going.  

I came away from my meeting, several hours later, dispirited. I wish I could talk about it, because it would make me feel better and you’d have interesting insights into the matter, but I may not. I came home and cooked bacon sandwiches for lunch. I offered the Sage a glass of wine “I’m having one, will you join me?” “I’ll fall asleep,” he confessed. “Good idea,” I said. He accepted the wine.

I leap capriciously between frivolity, formality and severity. “I think we should do this very formally, dear,” I said to a member of staff. And then did. There were chuckles all round at the ‘dear’, but I like to summarise at the end, it helps me to marshall my thoughts and, I think, is helpful for the person taking minutes. And I know when not to do it – the dear and darling, that is. I wonder if there’s a deliberate quirkiness? I don’t think so, but I don’t mind the thought of being slightly unpredictable. But, even there, does that make me easy to read for someone perceptive?

I suspect so. I’m an open book and if you find one of the pages sticks, I’ll help you to turn it. I’m no woman of mystery.

    Not only is it different, the lines are quadruple-spaced, and are too long and so run off the page, so I can only see half what you have written.

    You didn’t use your I-phone, did you?

    Interesting layout. 😉

    (I managed to read it all in Google Reader even though it was all weird there too.)

    You are very admirable Z – all that cycling, and biting your tongue. I am not being flippant either.

    No, I didn’t. I wrote the post in Blogger as usual and very annoying it was, as I could see the problem but not correct it. I’ve been to ‘customise’ and can change the rest of the blog, just not this post.

    Tell you what, I’ll save it, delete it, put it on a Word document and reimport it and see if that does the trick.
