They say things come in threes...

First, was a shock. My next-door neighbour came down to find his wife, on the sofa, with a blue face and not breathing. Ambulance was called. He, being ex-army, did CPR and all that, but she died.

I'll miss Monika.

Second, was me throwing up, everywhere, getting the squits and generally being in the grip of what seems like a bout of my friend the norovirus.


Third, is a long story...

Way back in the late eighties, I worked for a company, as a project engineer, doing this kinda stuff:


I was only with them for about five years.

Well, a couple of weeks back, Equitable life managed to get hold of me, via the dreaded DWP, telling me that I had a pension, with them, that was due to pay out. I had to fill out this huge bloody form and thought "Is it worth it? This must be worth all of 50p".

Anyway, I sent it off and forgot all about it.

This morning, a letter arrived.

They want to throw £22K at me!!

I'd rather that Mon hadn't died, coz she was my friend. We shared the naughty step, when we had a ciggy.

I'd rather that I wasn't ill and feeling total sxxxe.

But, twenty-two grand has rather cushioned those blows.

In all honesty, I'd give it back, tomorrow, if we could have Mon back, though.
