London – September 1st, 1988

After all the uncertainty of whether we would all be given notice on our houseshare at Grassmere Road, nothing happened today. No notice, no visit by Mr & Mrs Summer, and a massive sigh of relief for us all left here.

Marty, however, continues to make plans for the purchase of his new flat. He assured me, again, that the spare room there has my name on it, but I don’t feel very confident about moving in with him and his Ex. I find it strange that they want to live together again, but I guess they must have a firm friendship. It’s an odd setup.

What hasn’t gone out of my mind is the phone call I had with Simon earlier this week…

London – July 22nd, 1988

I decided to leave the matter and take no action at all about the recent fraud attempt on my bank account. From the description given of the person who attempted to withdraw money from my account, I know exactly who it was. He no longer lives at my previous address, nor indeed in London. All I know is that he moved back to the North-east of England, but I have no idea where. However, if he crosses my path ever again, then I will make it known that I know exactly what he tried to do to me. The bank has now closed the matter.

When I saw her last Christmas, she was showing the first signs of a strange illness that my mother didn’t want to talk about…
