Lee Ralphie Ralph
Our Lee turned up on his Gay Mothers doorstep on Thursday. We hadn't spoken in a while, as we don't often, for many reasons. We clash something chronic and fall out on a regular basis. However she only has to flash her puppy dog eyes and I always end up taking her back in. From wayward daughter, to best daughter in seconds, well third best maybe.
'A few vodka's'
She arrived just in time to get my hair cut for the Wedding. Jason has already mucked up his own hair, by doing it himself and I wasn't going to risk the same thing myself.
After a few vodka's our Lee was ready to cut hair. In her view, drinking before cutting produces the best hair cut. Personally, I think he is winding me up!
While Lee stayed at home with Jason, having a chat, looking back, reflecting and remembering fun times, I popped up the Hospital and Jay came along with me. It's the only time I actually get to walk anywhere!
We had a chat on the way about our current position and what we were going to do about it! Had an important phone call earlier in the day, which made me rethink a few things and open my eyes to other more serious stuff, that will have to be dealt with!
Natalee and Jack!
Natalee and Jack turned up. Natalee was drunk before she got here, she had had a few drinks in Goblets before hand and was in one of those feisty moods!
Jason was also in a bad mood, as he continues to get used to his medication and his current position. The more he thinks about it, the more angry he gets. To be honest, I don't blame him a bit!
I'm quite reluctant to go out anywhere these days. When you are as ill as I am at the moment, it is the last thing you want to you. I was persuaded that, going out will do me the world of good and since Natalee can't attend our Stag Do on Saturday, Jason and I decided to go out for a few drinks, to lighten the mood and cheer us both up!
We went to The Edge, after Goblets for a few. I literally lasted an hour. I was tired and exhausted and just wanted a kebab. Natalee and myself, popped to Sals, to get a something to eat, falling asleep on the tables. I guess I'm just showing my age, on top of the Aripiprazole and stressful day, it was time for bed.
When I got home, I lost the plot literally. Smashing up the mirror in the bathroom and then trashing my bedroom. I guess things had really got on top of me and the anger and pain just flowed out!
To be perfectly honest, I love Lee to bits. We clash because we are very similar people in many respects. We both have our health issues, love a good drama, though less so for me now, and fall out with people, almost on a daily basis!
Our Lee is a hairdresser, with a reputation, as big as her belly! A bit like mine in the past, not so much now, since I've got older and wiser!
He's got Bipolar you know!
We went for a few drinks at Goblets. Natalee always seems to know everyone and introduced me to the great and good of Southampton. April the Manageress of her strip club, to someone else with Bipolar and the barman, whose brother she knows intimately. I loved being introduced to people, as her friend who has Bipolar. I'm quite open about it, so no problem for me. It's more of a fascination for others!
Peace and Love, always!
