Sgt Hobs : Well let's just start with the facts Wilkinson. When you got to the school music room what did you see?
Constable Wilkinson : What everything? You want me to tell you everything I saw?
Desk Sergent : Excuse me sir, I have orders to terminate this interview - could you both vacate the briefing room.
Sgt Hobs : This is outrageous who has sanctioned this?
I Have! Allow me to introduce myself, Super Chief over inspector of CI6! Frank Smith.
Frank : I want all the heads in on this one, even the big ones, I want the truth!
Later more ..
Frank : Wilkinson your sharp, in fact years ago your name was on one of the worlds finest blades. I'm going to be Frank with you -
Wilkinson : Thank you sir..
Frank : You are the key, you knew the boy, you knew his dad, you knew his granddad.
Wilkinson : I did Frank, well I knew him and I knew his dad. I knew his grandma more than I knew his Granddad though...sorry can I call you Frank?
Frank : For now.
Wilkinson : Ok, well Frank, you have to remember that this was the creme de la creme of..
Frank : I'm sorry What? cream what?
Wilkinson : Ok, well Frank, you have to remember that this was the best of the best as far as trumpet playing went. What this family did with trumpets could make your eyes water!
Frank: That bad eh?
Wilkinson : No Frank, they were the envy of every brass instrument player in the known world!
Frank : So what are you saying?
Frank : Ernest! Thank God your alive!
Ernest : Hello Sir, sorry I'm late, I had a bit of trouble with Morriartinette at Niagara Falls and I came in on the Edgeware Road instead of the North Circ then the A1 under suicide bridge - But justice prevailed.
I'm up to speed on this trumpet case sir may I?
Frank : Please do Detective special CI6 Ernest.
Ernest : WHAT's that sound? Clear the room, Wait....Wait....
Booze & Personal Stuff..
Jo's mum rushed into intensive care puts things into perspective... After days of visiting her mum I managed to drag Jo and Daisy away to Hop Farm for camping in ELBY van .... the thing I love most in life is making breakfast for Jo and Daisy in a field as we camp with our van..
Starting to lose a bit of my Belly even though I haven't cut out the booze. Just simple changes now although I did a carb free 24 hours - that included booze.. I was going for another day but felt so tired at the office I could have slept! I decided to send out for a chocolate snack with nuts in. Not naming because I didn't check for palm oil I just devoured it! I was looking for the wrapper afterward to check for palm oil but I couldn't find it! I have 2 conclusions 1/ my alter ego surfaced and destroyed the wrapper for as yet unknown reasons...or 2/ I ate the bar - wrapper and all in a carb frenzy?!
The guilt I felt was enormous but I held steadfast and avoided carbs for the rest of the day/eve. (apart from a few glasses of wine)
The next morning my wife Jo ordered breakfast from a cafe for me her and Daisy as a treat....
Now the war opened up on 2 fronts...1/carbs and 2/ meat
The toast and the sausage became for an instant my reason for living... then without warning bacon!
Sheepishly I picked up my plate leaving behind the toast and the bacon. I am not proud of the fact that a lot of my close friends and loved ones are aware of my addiction to sausages, a genetic weakness on my fathers side.
I had been clean for about a month, but something snapped and I broke.
Soon after I went back for a slice of toast and then for a rasher of bacon.
I bounced back the following day and decided that eating a minimal amount of carbs, for example 1 slice of toast with my scrambled eggs - was the way forward. This has worked and apart from fish I have also resisted meat.
I've realised that food can be a trap, and ind if you don't respect it's power it will take over your body! Carbs in particular are very powerful, the moment you have eaten them they message your brain to think of more, then more...
I view carbs as a treat now, I have to because I'm 53 and 5'8 - my weight can escalate very fast!
Keep you posted - pp
Hang on.... I just bought some I'll be honest....pp x
Back later on this....
Well I seem to have slipped back into my old pattern. Not as bad but bad enough for me to do a dry June. 🥃😡
