I live in a house just around the corner from the roads my parents lived on before they were married. There's a laundrette at the end of the street. "We used to go to that laundrette" They say. "Looks that's Janson Road", they say, "Remember the Janson Road boys?"

My housemates and I have a record player and we play our parents' records. Some of them have love notes written on the sleeves. I'm listening the Thick As A Brick on vinyl, just like my parents did, around the corner from this road.

My pot plants are doing well. Every saturday I go running and then we all sit in the kitchen and have eggy-bread for breakfast.

I hope I'm going to be ok.

Since then I've moved again, to a new city, for a new job. I hope it was worth the move. Lately I have:

Run by the sea
Run past the circus (it smelt like popcorn)
Seen a shooting star
Dug up potatoes
Eaten ice cream on the beach at 10pm.
Met people
Missed people

I ran three miles in a thunderstorm. I ran passed businessmen who forgot their umbrellas, scowling in their soaked pink shirts. I ran passed police men sheltering under trees. I ran passed runners, who smiled, and I smiled, and we all ran faster.

Run run run said the farmer with his gun!

My shoes need re-soleing. I travelled to 5 cities in 10 days. Slept in 5 different beds. I sleep well in other beds.

It was hot and then it snowed, it was on the news.

It's hot again now and there's salt on my water glass. Salty lips on my salty water glass.

Sometimes I drink sweet coffee and give myself a headache.

Knit yourself a winter nest. Stock up on rum, and ginger roots. Keep the kettle on the boil. Are you still watching autumn from the window? Whistle when the snow starts to fall.

This was the last of summer: peach iced tea and walks along the dorset coast. The bulbs have been planted for next spring and I'm ready for autumn now; for buying jumpers and coming home as it gets dark.
I've been working as a temp in an office. I ride my new red bike to work, drink green tea with lemon, and someone will bring in chocolate cake because it's friday afternoon. There are so many things that society makes me think I should be doing. I should be moving somewhere new, and applying to all the graduate jobs I can find, or investing all the money I have in renting a studio and becoming a freelance designer. But why would I do that when I can stay here making barley stew and listening to johnny cash on the weekends?
Oh, to have been born adventurous.

I can hear crickets in the garden. I bet they're hot, all buried in the grass. We could make it hotter with a magnifying glass.

We could set the garden alight, hear it crackle in the summer sun.

But put it out quick, you don't want to start a forest fire.

When you make decisions, make sure you sit upside down in your chair, it's much easier with the blood rushing to your head. I graduated two weeks ago, and in that time I have:

Painted my room grey
Read Dickens
Run in the mornings
posted a letter with a drawing of a hot air balloon on the envelope
Stayed in bed in the mornings
Made a list of jobs to apply to
Not applied to said jobs
Received a letter with a drawing of a hot air balloon on the envelope
Eaten 14 apples

The trouble with planning your life is that you need to have some idea of what it is you really want to be doing. And I haven't got a clue.

The pavement has a little more of you in it every time you scrape your knees. Get some steel kneecaps and make some metal sparks. Swim across the sea, don't let the concrete take you.

On the other side we'll be waiting, with a towel for you hair and hot honey and lemon tea. On the other side you'll fall into the soft earth, the earth that hugs your knees.

I went to country. I fed some lambs. I shot three bulls-eyes with an air rifle. I walked by a river. I saw the sea.
