Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

23 December 2010 Christmas present wrapping accident. Broken glass, two stitches in right hand index finger. Nice nurse wore  novelty Santa socks that matched mine. Tells me to wear a rubber glove in the shower. Mm.. I say!

21 December 2010 Gratified that Vince Cable was in there doing the right thing opposing Murdock monopolies. He may have been hoodwinked by a honey trap of giggling girls, from the Telegraph, but his reputation is nevertheless enhanced. More so if he relinquishes ministerial car and blows whistles from the back benches.

20 December 2010 Thinking about Julian Assange who has been taken off the front pages, supplanted from his dungeon, to smoulder in Suffolk mansion over Christmas.
