The Diary of A Short-Armed Man. By CpSingleton © 2016 (day 3)

January 3rd
Woke up to the first frost this morning, Mol.

Can you believe that, love? 

We’re into January and haven’t seen a flake of snow. Where have the seasons gone? As kids, we were building igloos and having snowball fights by now.

They say it’s that global warming palaver. Always trying to scare us with some nonsense. If it’s not that it’s AIDS or terrorists. 

Sometimes I think you are best off out of the madness, Mol.

Kevin still hasn’t rung. I checked for noise on the telephone and we are still connected, so he’s got no excuse.

My knees are a bit swollen today. That’s probably the cold. Also think I might have mucked up the washing machine setting, as my jumpers and shirts seem a little more stretched than when you used to do it. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it.

I’m not in the mood for food today, so I’m just gonna have a toasted teacake for tea. 

It’s funny but I can hear you nagging at me. But don’t worry, Mol, love, I’m sure we all have days when we can’t be bothered. Tomorrow I’ll be back to normal.
Night night. All the best, love. X


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
