The Pleasure Report. Week 23. The rich, strong, intoxicating edition.

Week 23 in the year of pleasure.

The Pleasure

Sixty six points this week. Fifty seven last week.

And a 66:1 pleasure to pain ratio.

A selection of the pleasure

Sofa Glastonbury was fun

Just music lovers, very little politics, very little commercialism, such a great collaborative atmosphere and a lot of fun.

People looking like they were having a ball. Smiling ear to ear, looking so happy.

That spirit was so infectious, I caught it several counties away.

I watched on tv, had my own little sofa ‘Glasto’, singing away and dancing round the living room like I just didn’t care!

High love hugs

I don’t know what it was that was different about the hugs this week but boy were they good. And no that’s not a euphemism.

Pure love transmissions they were. Mmmm hmmmm!

Rich jasmine wafts

There’s no holding back with jasmine.

Rich, full, strong, intoxicating wafts.

WHAT a pleasure.

The Pain

One point this week. One point last week.

We stood each other up

I was very tired and though I wasn’t asleep on the sofa I was quite close to it….a vegetative state

And completely forgot about a skype chat with a friend.

I really don’t like to do that.

It’s an important matter of respect for me.

It offends me terribly that I’ve forgotten someone. I’ve also not kept to an agreement. Oh woe is me.

When I went to apologise it turned out she’d forgotten too.

So that’s kind of good, at least she didn’t waste her evening hanging around waiting for me or chasing me up.

And kind of bad, that I’ve been forgotten too.


Pain I did something about

Well, I apologised about the missed skype chat and we’ve re-booked but just the difficulty finding a time to talk feels a bit sad.
