I had a bath tonight. I was making my tiger. I watched telivision. I write a letter to Jim ll fix it.
[The tiger was a soft toy I made, one of many, from a kit that is still available now, completely unchanged by the looks of things! I wrote a few letters to Jim in my time, so I'm not sure what I would have been asking for on this occasion.]
