... I have done. I ended today with a blast on a busy Sunday at the pub and have treated myself to fish and chips and quite a few pints of beer.


I was going to attempt to leave Kirkby Stephens tomorrow and spend a day by myself in Manchester unwillingly, but instead have met a gentleman offering me 70 quid to work for him at his job site tomorrow cleaning up a bit.

For her time she was a very forward thinking conservationist as ...
