Why, when I don't hear from people, do I convince myself that they have finally realised that I am not a nice person and are running away?
Well, partly because of the two people who seem to have done just that. But that can't be the whole story, because my insecurity was part of what made them run away.
And I'm tempting fate posting this, because I'm exposing that insecurity. But if it's a problem, maybe it's better to find out now.
On a more positive note, I've got some leave coming up in a week, and I'm hoping to meet Cartref at some point - it will be good to have a chance to have a long chat for the first time. I feel I know her quite well already from our phone calls and emails, as well as the silliness on ChitChat, and she is such a sweetie.
And I have the weekend bubble-blowing to look forward to. This weekend I may, if I feel brave, wear my fluffy purple rabbit ears when I go to blow bubbles in town. It would amuse Nick, my friendly busker!
