Sounds like a line out of Oliver Twist !
Every few days I re-read what I have written, to reaffirm how I'm feeling. If im going to do what i plan to do today, i need to be 100% sure its what i want.
I can see that there are occasions where I'm repeating myself. Might not be using the same words but the feeling, the emotion in the writing is the same.
It's now down to... An answer phone. I hate answer phones, almost as much as confrontation, which I will avoid as much as possible.
