Moncreif's meme

I pinched this from Moncrief Speaks.

Where I was and what I was going:

Ten years ago -

I was living with my Mother in Bournemouth, trying to escape a spiral of depression and dependency on tranquilizers. The armed robbery had happened four or five years previously but still played a major part in my life. I didn't want it to play a major part in my life, but I was in a catch 22 situation. Every time, I popped a pill, I mulled over the eason I was taking them. If I didn't take the pill, the reason became a larger part of my day-to-day going on. There was no escape.

Five years ago -

Phyllis and I were living in a wee flat in Edinburgh. It was tight and cramped, but I was the happiest I'd ever been.

One year ago -

I was back living in Bournemouth. Our house in Armadale had been sold but the house we'd bought was still occupied by the previous owners. Homeless, I went to stay with my Mum while Ian was in St Boswells with his parents. Ian's Mum was dying. It was the worst time for us to be apart and I have so many regrets, you just wouldn't believe it, dear reader.

Excellent! And I do love that obviously Photoshopped photo as well.

I also like that you added the French accent thingies to "brulee," which I didn't bother with.

Fabulous on an international scale, sweetie.

What was photoshopped!?!?

Minge said...

You mean a fox wouldn't actually appear with a bunch of hounds without causing a huge fuss?

Moncrief Speaks said...

I think that's a fair bet.

Minge said...

Oh, and I was convinced it was real.

And I saw a fox last night...!
