Today I am off to see my friend who proofreads my books. He has been reading the Isle of Gid for me, the last in the Splidge The Cragflinger trilogy and so I shall buy him lunch as a thank you. I am feeling the effects of looking after my dementia suffering dad. It grinds you down a bit but to put him in a home is not what he wanted.

I am up again at 5am to start my day and I am telling the lovely listener about my trials with a teleprompter for my children’s story channel. I had the made by a friend of mine some time ago and I wanted to see if it would still work. It took a bit of jiggery-pokery but I go there in the end.

Last night I spent an hour trying to sort out a problem for my mother with her telephone account with Plus Net. They refused to send a paper bill out to her and because of that she wouldn’t pay them. My mother is an alcoholic and eighty this year. She is stubborn and can be rude. As piggy in the middle in can be awkward at times.

And so the result is in. Britain is to leave the EU. I am wholeheartedly pleased with the result. It will be good for us despite the doom and gloom people are saying. We can be proud and look on this day a success. Meanwhile, I think my neighbour is trying to break into the house. I am finding it difficult to work with all the noise.

I have been out to vote. I want to leave the EU – I have made that clear. Fingers crossed for Friday. Meanwhile, there are real things to take care of, my bicycle is playing up, there is my dad’s bottom to wipe and I have drawings to do …

I took Billy and his friend down to Southhampton last night to meet up with his brother, Stan. They are off to Glastonbury music festival for a few days, running a silent disco tent. I also talk about the reasons I have block and unfriended a few people from Facebook too. Warning – it’s a long podcast.

We wanted to go to the dog festival in Cheshire but a friend told us that there was over a two and a half hours waiting time to get in and as it was raining we decided to avoid that. Also a trip to town and lunch in a restaurant that hadn’t very much on the menu. it’s all go on my trip to the West Midlands.

I have been working on the artwork for the new book Escape From Snod Hill. Terrible news of an MP being shot in Yorkshire and the afternoon stint with my dad in his push chair and buying chocolate. Not enough hours in the day. Oh yes, and I recorded another Wally and Jeffery.

Now that the carer has gone we need a wheel chair for my Dad. I sourced one locally through something called gumtrees. So went to buy it from a man with no legs. Also, a friend popped over to talk about comedy videos for Youtube – a project we hoped to cobble together. We looked at the problems of producing slapstick, visual comedy.
