You should not need to disclose anything about yourself to get the stick poking to stop. What kind of manager is that?!

I blame back-to-back choral concerts (last weekend and today), and disruption of yesterday’s routine due to storm. We’re dry inside though, thankfully. I knew that new roof would pay for itself eventually.

We became quite close during my studies because he lived on my way home from drama school and I had a car and he didn’t, so we spent quite a lot of time chatting while I gave him lifts home. Then we fell out in an unacknowledged way where I just suddenly realised he was not exactly the fellow-traveller I thought he was, because he was in some ways rather a dinosaur re social justice issues other than class, but he was nonetheless a highly erudite and engaging dinosaur, and I’m very sad to learn that he’s no longer with us, not least because he was only a few years older than me. Damn. RIP, David.

I am so not comfortable with the entrenchment of the idea that people with muscular dystrophy are so Other to Everyone Else, positive stereotype or not.

Your work situation sounds appalling, I am truly sorry.
