Un mauvais quart d'heure

This has not been a fun week.

It seems I have spent six whole days chasing other people's tails and being treated like an unpaid flunky. I am not a happy man. I am unhappy with BA for losing my kids luggage. I am unhappy with BAA for not being able to operate an airport effectively in conditions most other countries don't even blink at. I am unhappy at being on the receiving end of an overload of emotional backlash simply because others can't bloody cope without lashing out.

There is nothing I can physically do, yet I'm expected to. Then be at everyone else's back and call.

On top of that, I have people telling me what I should and should not want. Well I bloody well don't! I need salt to balance my electrolytes, sugar for energy, exercise in the open air and proper rest to enable my body to wind down.

Now I want to say this; I am not yours to command. You have no right. Your problems are not my problems. Fix them yourselves. Grow a pair and grow up!

Now sod off and let me curl into a ball in some dark and neglected corner. Alone. I want the rest of the festering season off. The TV is going off and earplugs are going in.

You need a shed.
I have one, well-removed from the house. It has power, lights, a gas-fired heater, a battered old, but very comfortable chair, a radio, a CD player, a shelf full of interesting books and stuff, a drinks box and only ONE glass. No computer, no phone, nothing which will permit anyone to contact me.
The family knows not to approach Dad when he's in his shed.

A 'Summer house' is planned for when we finally build our own place. Power, heat, light, Wi-Fi, but no phone. If anyone else objects and wishes to join me, they will get their own office, but they will not share mine.

A lockable door is also part of the design brief.
