Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

Hey! I quit! Dance and celebrate!

I went straight up the stairs in to work and quit almost immediately, telling a complicated story about hospitals, operations and the fact that none of my siblings are capable of looking after sick parents. I also told the senior partner that my Dad had broken his neck when he was younger which was why he needed a hand from me to look after my Mum when she's ill.

What I didn't tell them, or at least the gaps I didn't fill in for them, were the facts that my Mum isn't going in to hospital until March, that the operation has been in the pipeline for about two years, that my Dad did break his neck, but it doesn't affect him now, that I volunteered for the lovely job of looking after my Mummy (and at the same time getting to stay off work and watch lots of programmes with Gaby Roslin in them).

I am eating New York Super Fudge Chunk icecream now. There is no fudge in it.
