Plumbing the depths

Wednesday 16th June 2021
Monday night was weird. I went to bed relatively early after having attended a church thing on Zoom with my brother. It had been a long day and so I wanted to decompress. I took my medication and prepared to slip into the arms of Morpheus when I had a message from our old friend Colin Schneider. Could I appear on his radio show that night. I have always been very fond of Colin, so I replied that of course I could. Fast forward a few hours and I do a surprisingly lucid interview whilst wrestling the duvet from a dog and three cats and being involuntarily off my tits on quetiapine.

However, I do have some absolutely remarkable news for the CFZ. After months of waiting, the plumber has been and gone, and we now have a new boiler, and I am 540 quid less well off. Let’s hope it works.
