Sep 05, 2008
Left the house with just minutes to spare for my appointment. Nearly ****** up the trip in the first minute as I reversed out of the drive and ran over an old lady out with her dog. I didn't have time to wait! Life's tough! The journey over the sleeping policemen was horrendous with lots of shaking and bumping. Eventually I made my way onto this wide track, apparently known by the locals as "Palatine Road" although this could be a misspelling I think. After a short while I came to a cross roads - which way to go???? This is some trip! I decided to be reckless and go straight on, ignoring the big red vehicle which nearly wiped me out. Full of people who had clearly escaped from an institution for the mentally ill. God these withington people are truly ugly - probably years of marrying their dogs! I took a deep breath and headed off towards an area I had heard scary reports about - Yes, Fallowfield! The very name is scary - named after a field where nothing would grow! Why? Was it a nuclear dump, a dead bodies dump or - JUST A DUMP! Read my next entry if I survive. Remember me if I don't!
