I wonder what Hetty's news could be. I wish I could phone her. I hope she's alright. Went round to see John after work. He was sprawled on the sofa watching 'The Weakest Link'. I was rather surprised when he got one or two of the questions right. I asked him what he'd been up to all day and he said, 'Nothing.' His mum chimed in, 'As usual.' She was hoovering, and then asked me to lift my legs up so she could get underneath.
I asked John if he'd ever thought of getting a part time job, just to tide him over with something to do during the day for a bit, but he grunted something about his Playstation, and then he continued muttering about 'dual controllers' and 'vibration pads', or some such nonsense. His impenetrable mumbling aside, John is really good company. I stayed for tea and his mum made us an egg salad.
I told John after tea about meeting Anna. For a brief moment he looked quite animated when I told him about her. I said, 'I don't think it'll go anywhere, I'm just doing it to humour Petra really,' and then I said about how Alan is away all the time and it's usually just me and Petra in the shop, but how the sale was going well.

No emails from Hetty. I wonder what could have happened.
