Day after Day

The Oz contingent are over and allatsea towers is bursting at the seams. The funeral is next week, in Fareham. It’s very very sad and complicated by events just prior to her death that won’t be gone into here. Save to say that bro and sons are not just grief stricken but a bit shocked too. A ghastly business for all concerned. Time they say, is a great healer. I guess that’s true on the whole and I hope to goodness that it applies in this case. I fear however it’ll be a very very long time in the healing.

Enough of that. The streets of England are burning and world stock prices are tumbling out of control. Allatsea’s just started a 14 day stint and the’colleague’ relieved by him this evening has manipulated the rota to suit his own ends and put the rest of them at a bit of a disadvantage and inconvenience. Hmmm, bit of a see you next tuesday it seems. Allatsea might well have been fortunate throughout his life because he’s never experienced this kind of self centred selfishness before, not from a fellow mariner at least. It’s not good. He can see a quest for ‘evening’ things up developing. He can see it very clearly. Tch tch. He don’t like them blagger folk, oh no sir, he don’t like them at all.

In the meantime, there are 7 very long nights to get through. Once they’ve been dealt with there are 7 even longer and more manic days. Are the  first seeds of doubt showing! Was it a mistake to have come here? Ooooh, he’s got a feeling it might just have been but what’s done is done so no moaning please.

Before I go peeps, just a quick comment that the yoof of Thanet are so, seemingly, lazy, that we didn’t have any riots here. If they had, if they’d demolished Margate High Street and the town hall and the Post Office and the library and the Turner centre, they’d probably have done about fifty pounds worth of damage.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
