Wednesday 28th September 2022


Up 08 15. Broken night due to cold : need combine autumn and summer duvets. Congestion.

Breakfast : orange juice; coffee; muesli (almond milk). Nordstream 2 pipeline apparently sabotaged. Works in road and in studio above.

Went bathroom, showered and dressed. Took samples round to surgery where receptionist said no collection at site on Wednesdays, offering me two new containers for new samples in case needed.

Attended UCU picket at Bath City College which again well attended and supported. Did leafleting again. Discussed EiE and proto-party with some members. Some students sitting down outside class rooms apparently. One member compared experience what was first picket favourably with prison riots where prisoners threw own excrement at wardens.

Elevenses : coffee.

Remained on picket until wrapped up.


Lunch : piperade; poached egg.

Thought about life.

Tea : black tea. Spoke friend.


Supper : pizza; salad.

Managed lock self out taking meter reading outside door to studio. Oven/stove off fortunately. Used last energy in mobile phone to try contact Managing Agent (no response), research locksmiths (£100 quoted which ‘goes up at seven o’ clock’), and contact friend who invited stay and sort out from there. Opted for latter and much relieved was in.

Waited a while and walked round to friend where received with glass red wine.

Spent evening with friend who kindly charged phone and made up spare room.

Turned in.
