How exciting.

You couldn’t make it up if you tried. Actually you could but why bother.

Opened post at lunchtime; glad tidings that “a warrant for your arrest has been issued“. Luckily I had quiche already in oven – so sudden dip in mood had no impact on what eventually constituted my son’s brunch.

Don’t say you don’t consort with outcasts. WANTED. More than two years ago I drove home feeling as sick as a rabbit caught in headlight, slammed car into closest to home (opposite house) vacant parking space, ran into house since didn’t want to soil car, threw up, washed my face, cleaned my teeth, came out ten minutes later to repark only to find parking fine ticket already issued. Never one to be huffy before strictly necessary called Council’s offices immediately to explain “Kotze” (another fine jiddish word). No probs. Put it in writing too. Fast forward nearly three years: I now owe £600 and am on brink of immediate arrest. Neither was anyone available when I called number, as advised, IMMEDIATELY.

I don’t mind going to prison for a short time; Since I’ve never been it would help my many researches. But son does mind. Very. Have now transferred all monies into his account so should worst come to worst he can pay the rent in absence of mine – and visit me. Poor boy. What mother he got himself lumbered with. They even stoop so low as to type IMPRISONMENT in capital letters. Shan’t comment lest air will turn blue.

Remember what I said the other day: All important to keep your nerve. Forgetting the state forking out to entertain and keep me in their own four walls (and I have to say that one of the reasons I do not rob banks is because I can imagine little fate worse than being confined to a cell) am I actually paying tax to keep people who have nothing better to do than soiling A4 sheets of paper in employment?




  1. Trying to get my attention?

  2. This situation – actually taking you to jail and even the situation of owing £600 for a parking space – seems surreal. Am I reading this correctly? They are really threatening to arrest you for that????

    This does not fit with my view of England. Perhaps a less modern, more oppressed culture, but come on. England?

    • Con, you are reading correctly. It beggars belief. They literally can kick door in – any moment now. What does one know? Not a lot, that’s what. Not that I am perturbed. But Felix is. Next the Mayor of London will be onto me. That’s another story. Years ago, also. Might get a double cell. 12 ft instead of 6.

      Thanks for taking interest. People tend to turn back once you are down and out.

  3. No, I’m not turning my back.
