Awoke in time to watch all of Sounds from London. Chas, Suggs and Bedders from Madness on, and Chas looked absolutely Dreamy with a capital D! Started some Graphics which I continued to work on after lunch, until tea and Different Strokes - it's getting to be a habit. Listened to 3PBS as usual. C went out with D to see The Fall. I feel very sceptical of that band scene. The more obscure a band, the trendier it is to see them. Sort of felt it might be good to check them out and that if I don't I'm missing something, but couldn't bear the inconvenience of the smoke and crowd.
Stayed home, cutting up old Women's Weeklies. Made up the second in what will probably be a series of 3 or 5 collages. Stayed up until about 12 or later to finish, quite pleased with it and my graphics and my productiveness.At lunch asked C what Cheryl was doing and her and Peter are invited to Soph and Vic's for tea. Felt awful, like I was losing friends because I didn't have a boyfriend. I don't really want one anymore as I did. I like my singleness and I hate this couples over to dinner business, but I also feel awful being left out of things, though I do understand it. I need my own crowd, a more single arty crowd. Guess I'll have to wait, no one wonderful enough anywhere to be seen.
