The title track first getting an airing on Radio 2 as part of Lester's Library.
(Warning: small man syndrome)
Puffs self up with pride.
Currently waiting for the man to get back to me with an estimate. He was due to arrive at 9am. He turned up at 7.50. I was fast asleep.
"You were supposed to turn up at 9," said man in pants opening front door.
"No one told me!" he responded to my bleary enquiry, trying to look anywhere but at the man in pants.
First, though, I needed to do some shopping: I needed pie.
Pulled into supermarket car park and got out, locked up and headed to the store. Hands in jacket pocket where I discovered a space…
No wallet. I'd left it on the settee at the Dark Lady's house after paying the electrician. This contained credit cards also. No way of getting hands on readies. What was a poor boy to do?
"Hello. I'm Alex your new neighbour. Do you think I could borrow £10?"
I phoned my friend Clive.
"You around Saturday evening. I'll meet you in the pub. Can you bring some money?"
I felt like a terrible British classic comedy cad.
"Awfully sorry old man. I find myself somewhat financially embarrassed. Could you possibly cash a small cheque?"
There was a pie in the freezer too.
The weekend was saved!
