While Were On The Good News Bit I Can Tell Ya Gary Got Tha Job I Told Yas About On Me Last Diary.. Its Workin For A Housin Agency Doin Handyman Services && Property Maintenaince For The Tenants.. Hes Startin Next Week && He Even Gets A Red Van To Drive Round In Lyk Hes Postman Pat Or Somethin.. Hes Made Up && Is Workin On Through The Lock-Down Too.. That Means We Both Workin Full-Time && Its All Good.. This Rona Business Has Used Up Savings That I Hve Had To Use Cos Not Gettin Paid && Tha.. At Least Am Back On Me Feet Now && Can See Light At The End Of The Tunnel..
Or So I Thought…
Things Are Gettin Bad With Me Mum && I Dont Know Why.. She Just Picks At Everything.. The Other Night I Was Workin Late && When I Got In There Was Nothin For Tea.. I Said No Problem, I Would Go && Get A Take-Away && What Did She Want?? I Fancied Some Italian So I Went Through The Whole Menu Askin Did She Want This, Did She Want That.. “No”, Was The Only Answer I Got To Everything.. I Asked Her Wasnt She Hungry Or Did She Fancy Chinese Instead && She Said Just Get Wot Ya Lyk Am Goin To Bed.. Thanks Mum, Ya Could Of Said That Half-An-Hour Ago && Saved Me The Effort.. I Texted Gary && He Said He Hadnt Had Anythin Either, So I Picked Him Up && We Went && Got Some Scran && Took It Back To Ours..
Later On That Night It Was Pourin Down With Rain So I Left The Boxes The Food Come In By The Back Door To Take Out The Next Morning.. When I Got Up She Kicks Off About Me Leavin The Food Boxes By The Back Door Just To Rub It In That She Went To Be Hungry.. I Was Lyk, “Mum Ya Went To Bed Hungry Cos Thats What Ya Wanted To Do, I Went Through The Whole Menu With Ya!!” Then She Kicked Off About Gary Bein Round && I Was Lyk Whats Wrong With That?? Thats When She Really Shocked Me.. She Said He Was A Nonce Cos He Keeps Textin Alisha && Daniella Says That Alisha Is Bein Dead Secretive About Her Phone && Takin It Up To Her Room To Text On.. I Was Lyk, “Fuck Off Mum, Alisha Has Texted Every Bloody Boyfriend I Hve Ever Had.. She Gets Fixated On Them && If Ya Go On Her Facebook Ya Will See She Has Her Own Little Boyfriend Frm School.. Thats Probably Why She Is Bein Secretive Cos Our Family Are Piss-Takin T*ats At Times && She Doesnt Want Us Laughin At Her..”
I Was Fuckin Fumin About Her Sayin That About Gary.. She Never Said It About Jay && He Used To Go Round To Danielles && Take Her Out Places.. Am Not Sayin Jay Was Doin Anythin Wrong, Its Just That Alisha Lykd Him && He Considered Her His Niece Cos She Is My Niece, Gary Is The Same..
So I Told Me Mum I Was Seriously Considerin Movin Out Cos She Hasnt Been Right For Ages.. Ive Told Yas Before That She Is Ill With All kinds && Bein Bipolar Is One Of Them.. She Goes Round && Round In Circles.. She Feels Fedup && So She Takes Her Tablets Which Make Her Feel Better.. Then She Thinks That She Is Better && Doesnt Need The Tablets Any More && So Gets Fed Up Again.. I Know It Sounds Harsh Tellin Her I Am Movin Out Bt She Has Had Me Cryin Every Night This Week.. Its Lyk Shes Not Happy Until She Has Pushed && Pushed Until I Get Upset && Start Crying.. Then She Goes To Bed..
Poor Davidd Has The Patience Of A Saint.. I Keep Ringin Him Up && Cryin Down The Phone At Him Cos Am Pissed Off.. All I Do Is Get Up In The Mornin && Work Full-Time Then Hve To Come Home && Do The Cooking, Cleanin && House Work Cos She Doesnt Do It.. Then To Cap The Day Off She Kicks Off About Anythin She Can Think Off.. I Really Cant Take It Anymore.. I Am Close To Crackin Up.. Its Not Right When Ya Are Happier In Work Than Ya Are At Home..
Somethin Is Rotten In Denmark..
