Daily doodal dandy


On Tues I was having a particular day of seeing the dark humour in the daily senanegans of life at Merryweathers over 50s complex. I thank the big man upstairs everyday (not the big man drinker Dan ) that I have been graced with my own apartment and so whatever 'drama goes on in the square (I call it Albert Square after a popular tv sitcom based in the east end of London called wait for it.. Eastenders, then I can close the door and pick up my trusted friend bose eardefenders if in the front of my house and block out said drama.

Back later... U know the score
Rest 😊

Needless to say felt a bit better after and thought of all. My m. E sisters and brothers during the process... Roaring for us all.
Yes, the person (me with the noise making complex gave the neighbours a taste of what's called 'aversion therapy for the noise meak...
